  • After Independence,there was a great deal of confusion as to which language should be the official language of the country.While Hindi-speaking states wanted Hindi to be declared as the national language, other states wanted English to remain as the official language of the country.
  • The leaders of our country adopted a very cautious attitude while forming the language policy. Hindi,which is spoken by about 40% of our population,was declared as the official language. In order to meet the demands of the people of other states, several other languages were also recognised as Scheduled Languages by the Constitution. Apart from Hindi, there are 21 scheduled languages.
  • Candidates appearing for any Central exams may opt to write exams in any one of these scheduled languages.
  • The government allowed states have their own official languages,and all government work is done in the official language of the concerned state. Such kind of an arrangement has helped in preserving the culture of many linguistic groups and has maintained the diversity of our country.
