Govt revises draft education policy after massive outrage over Hindi imposition, Hindi not mandatory

Amid massive outcry over Hindi being made a compulsory language in all non-Hindi speaking states, the HRD ministry has climbed down and tweaked the draft National Education Policy to say that students are free to choose any language they wish to study in.


The revised draft policy, "In keeping with the principle of flexibility, students who wish to change one or more of the three languages they are studying may do so in Grade 6 or Grade 7, so long as they are able to still demonstrate proficiency in three languages...."


The earlier draft education policy triggered outrage in southern states, led by Tamil Nadu, which said they will not tolerate Hindi imposition in the state that doesn't speak the language.
