The decision was taken at a high level review meeting chaired by Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on Thursday that from now onwards technical courses must be offered in regional language. Our country produces many skilled engineers every year and they are very much good in their own domain when it comes to creating something to do a great discovery. The point where they lack is the language problem, every skilled engineer may not be able to present his/her idea in form of desired language because the language they know may be different from the subjective language. So from the next academic year, technical courses including engineering programmes will be offered in regional languages. From the back many years this problem and issue was raised by many individuals that they find problem in expressing their thought and ideas through a particular language. It may be the problem of education system but on the other hand it is also required much in these days. Language is something which is different for every individual when it seen from demographical perspective. In foreign countries it is observed that they are taught the knowledge of the particular subject in their own regional language.

The decision was taken by higher authorities of education ministry and at a high level review meeting chaired by Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal. A seminal decision was made to start technical education, especially engineering courses, imparting education in mother tongue will be opened from next academic year. A few IIT and NIT are being short listed for the same, a senior official said. Since it is not a one day change and it will take time to get implemented because it is also kept in mind that it will not bring any bad result in education policy, there are students who are not well fluent with the mother tongue who come from different parts of country and they don’t understand a single word. In the meeting, it was also decided that the National Testing Agency (NTA) will come out with the syllabus for competitive examinations after assessing the existing scenario of school education boards.

The NTA, which conducts the JEE (Main) and NEET-UG among others, will come out with the syllabus for competitive examinations, it was decided in the meeting. The University Grants Commission has also been directed to ensure all scholarships, fellowships are disbursed in time and to start a helpline for the same and address all grievances of the students immediately. Due to COVID pandemic schools and colleges also reduce their syllabus because they are not getting face to face classes so they won’t fully understand their subject. However the IIT and NIT are yet to take up the matter so far on whether the JEE advance will also be offered in regional language because the paper set up is designed on the basis that every individual can attempt it through the knowledge of their intermediate knowledge. The need to access the school education scenario before coming out with syllabus arises because many boards, including national boards like CBSE and CISCE, have rationalized their exam syllabus due to COVID 19 situation and subsequent academic loss due to schools being closed since March 2020.
