Centre cracks whip to promote use of Hindi; makes the language official

  1. The central government has directed senior officials to use simple, spoken Hindi for official correspondence.
  2. A review revealed that most ministries were nowhere close to meeting the target of using the official language for three-fourths of file notings.
  3. While most ministries have shown that 100% of staff can speak and understand Hindi, the use of the language for official correspondence is as low as 12% in some cases.
  4. The government also frowned on the lack of bilingual websites of some ministries and sought to know why websites open in English by default and not in Hindi.

It is the “constitutional responsibility” of central officials to use Hindi in their daily work.
