Attempts to make free and compulsory education accessible to Indian children began in British India. In 2009, more than a century later, India finally enacted the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act. This act ensured that every child from the ages of 6-14 years will have the right to get a quality education without any discrimination or exclusion. Even after 12 years, India has failed to effectively implement this act. Children from marginalized communities have not been able to access their right to education. India is going through a massive transformation in the education sector, driven by the announcement of the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020. The aim of this research paper is to identify the gaps in the implementation of the Right to Education in the past and analyze the effects of NEP 2020 in providing equal access to education in the coming decades.
