Abstract The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 of India aims to transform the country's education system, emphasizing holistic development, innovation, and inclusivity. This abstract examines the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi's educational philosophy to the goals and principles outlined in the NEP 2020. Gandhi's emphasis on moral and character education, experiential learning, and community engagement resonates with several key aspects of the NEP. His concept of 'Nai Talim' (Basic Education) aligns with the NEP's focus on skill development, vocational training, and a multidisciplinary approach to learning. Furthermore, Gandhi's advocacy for education rooted in local context and culture corresponds with the NEP's emphasis on promoting regional languages and indigenous knowledge systems. This abstract explores how Gandhi's principles of self-reliance, sustainability, and social responsibility can enrich the implementation of NEP 2020, fostering a more inclusive, equitable, and values-driven education system. By drawing parallels between Gandhi's educational vision and the objectives of NEP 2020, this abstract offers insights into how Gandhi's timeless wisdom can inform and inspire educational reform efforts in contemporary India.
