Centre drops specification of Hindi compulsory from draft education policy


The Union government has issued a modified draft after facing pressure from Tamil Nadu against the recommendation for mandatory Hindi teaching in all the States by the draft National Education Policy, finally leaving out the controversial clause.

As uploaded by the Human Resource Development Ministry, in the modified draft Section 4.5.9, which is titled as ‘Flexibility in the choice of languages’ has been changed, excluding any reference to which languages students may choose.

From the time the draft released on Friday evening, almost all Tamil Nadu opposition parties such as the DMK, the Congress, the MDMK, Left parties and Kamal Hassan’s Makkal Needhi Maiyyam have expressed annoyance against the recommendation.

Even in West Bengal and Maharashtra protests were seen.
