In sync with one of the focal points of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the promotion of Indian languages in higher education, the Union minister has suggested introducing Indian languages in the study of Engineering, law, and medicine in the country.
Is there an actual need to introduce the regional languages in higher studies?
The language policy of India is basically embodied in Part XVII of the Indian Constitution along with the 8th schedule in reference to articles 344 and 351 (which specify the languages of India for purposes mentioned in these 2 articles), and the articles concerning Fundamental Rights regarding language, education, and culture, etc.
Positive Aspects of Higher Education in Regional Language
A holistic approach is required for the implication of native-language instruction in an increasingly globalized world. A shift from “mother tongue versus English" towards the “mother tongue plus English" is required.
Verifying, please be patient.
