In an important step supporting the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which highlights the importance of teaching in local languages, the University Grants Commission (UGC) and Bharatiya Bhasha Samiti (BBS) have started a two-day training program. This program focuses on creating educational content and teaching using Indian languages.

The training sessions will happen in person across different areas in February and March 2024. The goal is to help experienced teachers learn the skills needed to encourage the use of local languages in universities and colleges.

The UGC has suggested to college leaders to pick two experienced teachers for a special training program. These teachers will become certified Master Trainers. They should hold positions like professors or associate professors and have good knowledge of the local language. One of them should specialize in Science, and the other in Commerce or Social Science.

To make it easy to choose teachers, the UGC made a form on its website. College leaders need to fill out the form and send a signed nomination letter from the top authority. They also need to scan the letter, as it will be uploaded in the form. The deadline to submit everything is January 31, 2024.

The UGC notice talks about how important it is to follow the rules of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. The NEP says we should teach college courses in our local language to make education better. This helps more people get into college, and it also makes sure all Indian languages are strong and used a lot.

The National Education Policy 2020 wants us to teach and learn using our local languages in college. This helps more people join college and makes sure all Indian languages stay strong and are used a lot. The UGC notice is telling everyone about this important focus.

Once the special training is done, the certified Master Trainers will help other teachers at their schools learn how to create good lessons and teach in Bharatiya languages. The NEP 2020 also says it's important to have good study materials in local languages for different college courses.
