The National Education Policy, which envisages to develop good human beings capable of rational thought and action, should be assiduously implemented by educational institutions of the country, the governor said at the programme on Friday.
He expressed satisfaction that in keeping with the spirit of the NEP, the Assam down town University is in the process of restructuring its curriculum encompassing flexibility with choice-based course structure in order to provide scope and freedom to learners to acquire specialised knowledge.
Congratulating the graduating students, Mukhi said acquiring degrees was not the end of their journey, rather it was just the beginning.
Their contributions will be judged and their efforts will be appreciated when they can serve society at large, the governor said.
“Words mean nothing unless followed by action,” a Raj Bhavan release quoted the governor as saying.
A total of 1,300 students and scholars received their degrees.
