In accordance with National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the Central Government has authorized the "New India Literacy Programme" for the fiscal years 2022–2027, which will now include all facets of adult education in the nation. “Education For All” will henceforth be referred to as "Adult Education."   According to the 2011 census, there were 25.76 crore people in the nation who were illiterate and were aged 15 or older (9.08 crore men and 16.68 crore women). According to the government, there are currently 18.12 crore adult illiterates in the nation.   The New India Literacy Programme's goal is to teach fundamental reading comprehension skills as well as important life skills like money management, computer literacy, business skills, affordable healthcare and understanding, child care and education, and family welfare. It also aims to impart practical training, basic education, and lifelong learning.
