As per the reports of the Indian Express, it has been found that the HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar has stated that while adhering to the three language formulae in schools, Hindi must be made mandatory till class 8th. He has also stated that there should be uniformity in the syllabus of Science and Maths across the nation. HRD Minister also emphasized the fact that an elaborated script in Devanagari should be developed for tribal dialect and skills or hunar based on education must be promoted.
The new policy of making Hindi, as a subject, mandatory across the nation is yet to be proposed in front of the cabinet. According to the media reports, the ideas mentioned above are the key recommendation in the draft report prepared by the nine-member K Kasturirangan committee on the New Education Policy (NEP), which will focus to establish an “India-centric” and “scientific” system of learning in schools, claims report.
If sources are to be believed then, the draft on New Education Policy was handed over to the HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar last month, before the tenure got over. In 2017, Former President Pranab Mukherjee allegedly claimed that they are planning to make Hindi mandatory till Class 10th in all the CBSE schools across the nation. This plan was slammed by the states where Hindi is not used as a local language.
