No change in language policy, CBSE board to 'study proposal'

The chairperson of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), on Wednesday, said there was "no change in its language policy" to make Hindi language compulsory till class X in CBSE schools.

CBSE chairperson RK Chaturvedi said: "I am not aware of the committee's report. And so far there is no change in the language policy of the Board. Schools will continue to follow what they have been following so far. The board has asked for the report to study it."

The statement followed reports of 'in-principle' approval to a parliamentary committee's recommendations, which also include making study of Hindi compulsory till Class X.

The Board follows a three-language formula till class VIII and two-language formula till class X with English as the mandatory language. In classes IX and X, students of CBSE schools either opt for a foreign language or Hindi or Sanskrit along with mandatory English.

CBSE had recently proposed to the ministry of human resource development to implement the three-language formula till Class X but there was no recommendation to make the study of any language compulsory.

However, The proposal recommends keeping study of a foreign language out of the ambit of the three-language formula.
