The panel headed by the former ISRO chief, which was supposed to submit the report by June 30, now has time till August 31.
This is the third extension granted to the panel. Initially it was supposed to submit its report by December, 2017.
The TSR Subramanian panel submitted its report to the government in May 2016, suggesting measures to strengthen the education sector that caters to over 300 million students.
However, the government decided to have more consultations and use it as an "input" for the future draft and not as a final draft report, and set up the panel headed by Kasturirangan.
Kasturirangan headed ISRO between 1994 and 2003 and was awarded the country's second highest civilian honour -- Padma Vibhushan -- in 2000.
