Government to promote Hindi in central government offices
In a bid to promote the use of the Hindi language, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said the use of Hindi would be encouraged in central government offices, and in North East and South India to make the language more popular.
Chairing a meeting of Hindi Advisory Committee, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said that, in spite of government’s emphasis on increased use of Hindi in official work, still a lot needs to be done in this direction.
Singh said that Hindi has the capacity to serve not only as a common medium of communication for whole country, but it also carries high stakes for youngsters who aspire for jobs in corporate sector and multi-national companies where knowledge of Hindi is given an additional weightage during selection.
Friday’s meeting was held with the motive to promote the use of Hindi language in central administration.
Minister of State for Personnel Singh said the move does not aim to impose Hindi, but to inspire voluntary adoption of the language in the larger interests of administration and ease of governance.
