Inclusive Education is a learning environment that involves teaching students with disabilities, special needs, or learning disabilities alongside their peers to foster success for all. Inclusive education, as defined by UNESCO, involves reducing learning obstacles and ensuring participation of all pupils, specifically those at risk of exclusion. This concept has been reinforced by India’s Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act (RPWD Act) of 2016 and is in line with the National Educational policy (NEP 2020). various education commissions and policies in India have laid the foundation for inclusive education. The NEP 2020 places a significant emphasis on inclusive education and addresses various aspects of the education system. The policy highlights the importance of ICT infrastructure, gender-inclusion funds, free accommodations, and equitable, high-quality education for all. It acknowledges the diversity of students and promotes flexible learning pathways. the NEP 2020 represents a promising blueprint for inclusive education in India. In short, National Educational Policy (NEP) 2020 seeks to fix today’s education system as a result of the increasing inclusivity and equity.
