Must read


SRINAGAR: Following directions from the Centre, the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Srinagar, is all set to adopt Hindi (Raj Basha) as its official language (OL). Towards this end, a language inspection by Suniti Sharma, director of official language department, ministry of human resource development, was conducted on the NIT campus recently.
During their interaction, NIT-Srinagar director Rakesh Sehgal and registrar SK Bukhari apprised Sharma of the progress in adoption of Hindi language on the campus for official transactions.
Sharma also interacted with heads of departments and faculty members, including in-charge of the NIT’s Hindi Cell, to take stock of work being done for OL implementation.
She was informed that the Hindi Cell was created for the implementation of Raj Basha and that Sehgal had already placed his requirement of staff for the cell before the higher education department.
Sharma said the main objective of OL is to conduct all official transaction in one language (Hindi) throughout the country.
As per provisions of Section 3 (3) of the Official Language Act-1963, the website of the institute should be bilingual (Hindi and English). However, signboards, stationery items, forms, notice boards, rubber stamps, etc. should be prepared in the regional language, Hindi and English. “Official letters received in Hindi would be answered in the Hindi language only,” the OL Act says.
In order to train in and learn the official language, the Centre has directed NIT-Srinagar to use computer-based software LILA (Leaning Indian Languages Through Artificial Intelligence), Hindi Prabodh, Praveen, Pragya, etc. for the benefit of officers and employees nominated for working in Hindi.
Sehgal said they are duty-bound to fulfil the national mandate for implementation of the official language. “It is a national mandate. NIT-Srinagar would be actively involved in the implementation of the official language and fulfil its national duty,” he said, adding that learning different languages can prove highly beneficial for both faculty and the staff.
