Apr 19, 2017 10:11 IST

    cbse, cbse news, education newsSchools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Kendriya Vidyalyas may soon make study of Hindi compulsorily till Class 10 with recommendations of a Parliamentary panel in this regard getting the President Pranab Mukherjee's principal approval.

    Parliament's committee on official languages has recommended the centre to form  a policy in consultation with the state governments to make the language compulsory.

    "The HRD ministry should make serious efforts to make Hindi language compulsory in curriculum. As a first step, Hindi should be made a compulsory subject up to standard X in all schools of CBSE and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan," said the presidential order, a copy of which is available on the website of the department of official languages.

    The recommendations were made in the ninth report of the Committee of Parliament on Official Language.

    CBSE, the country’s biggest school board, had last year recommended a three language formula- English and any two Indian languages – to be expanded to classes 9 and 10. However, the HRD ministry is yet to take an action on the suggestion.

    In an effort to endorse the Hindi language, we may soon see all dignitaries, including presidents and union ministers delivering speeches in Hindi.
