Pranab Mukherjee in suggestion to parliamentary Panel give ” in-principle approval ” that all Cbse affiliated school and students of Kendriya Vidyalayas may have to study Hindi as a compulsory subject till class 10th.
However the centre could draw up this policy after consulting with state to make Hindi as compulsory subjects in all the States, according to the presidential order , a copy of which is available on the website of department of official languages. The human resource and development ministry is yet to respond to the CBSE suggestion.
The choice of Hindi languages to be taught in all Cbse schools may varies from state to state. Various States like Tamil Nadu came up with violent protests against Hindi language as compulsory in schools, however this language is the official language of the Indian government.
Most of states in India are drawn along linguistics lines and for all of them Hindi in schools can be an emotive subject. While India’s biggest school board, central board of secondary education, recommended a three language formula last year, in which the proposal is to expand English and any two Indian languages to classes 9 and 10.
Hindi language is likely the first choice for north Indian students, but in other parts of India states prefer to pick language from any of the 22 Indian languages which is recognised by the Constitution of india.
According to President approval he turned down the Hindi language as one of the essential condition for government jobs in central and state government. The parliamentary committee has given officially 117 languages to encourage the Hindi language and out of which most of the language has been accepted by our president.
One of them is for fixing the time duration of broadcast of Hindi programmes on All India Radio stations and doordarshan centres. The panel also said that all dignitaries should be requested to deliver speech in Hindi language if they can read or speak the language. Through this soon we may saw our union ministers and President speaking in Hindi.
One more recommendation that is accepted by President pranab Mukherjee is that the government should give all advertisements in Hindi and regional languages where it is possible.
