Hindi may be compulsory till classs X

The HRD ministry has also been instructed to form a policy in consultation with the state governments to make the language compulsory.

"The HRD ministry should make serious efforts to make Hindi language compulsory in curriculum. As a first step, Hindi should be made a compulsory subject up to standard X in all schools of CBSE and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan," the Presidential order said. "The Centre should form a policy in consultation with state governments," it added.

The recommendations were made in the ninth report of the Committee of Parliament on Official Language.

CBSE had last year recommended a three-language formula - English and any two Indian languages - to be expanded to classes IX and X. However, the HRD Ministry is yet to take a call on the suggestion.
