Promotion of all Indian languages among topmost priorities: Dharmendra Pradhan
Union Minister of Education and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Dharmendra Pradhan, advocates for a modern and technology-based approach to teaching the Hindi language across the country. In a meeting of the Governing Council of Kendriya Hindi Shikshan Mandal in New Delhi, the Minister emphasizes the importance of consolidating and synergizing the efforts of various Central educational institutions and organizations involved in Hindi language instruction.
Pradhan highlights the government’s commitment to promoting all Indian languages, including Hindi, as a top priority, aligning with the recommendations of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Recognizing Hindi as a unifying language for people with diverse mother tongues, he urges the Kendriya Hindi Sansthan to expand its online courses for training Hindi teachers, particularly in non-Hindi speaking states, to reach a wider audience. He also emphasizes the need for these courses to adapt to evolving demands and requirements.
Kendriya Hindi Sansthan, an autonomous body under the Ministry of Education, is responsible for enhancing the quality of Hindi teaching, training Hindi teachers, and conducting advanced studies in Hindi language, literature, and comparative linguistics in relation to other Indian languages.
