New Delhi, Jan 10 (IANS) Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar on Thursday countered media reports on government's intention of making Hindi compulsory, saying that no language is being given a compulsory status in the new National Education Policy (NEP).
"The Committee on New Education Policy in its draft report has not recommended making any language compulsory. This clarification is necessitated in the wake of mischievous and misleading report in a section of the media," Javadekar tweeted.
An article in The Indian Express had reported that the government will be making Hindi compulsory for students till Class 8 in the upcoming education policy.
