NEW DELHI: 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.
