HRD Minister calls for innovative ways to promote all Indian languages

Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ called for innovative ways to promote all Indian languages and stressed the need for research and making available translations of the literature in each of the languages across the country.
Chairing a meeting with heads of Central Language Institutions under the Ministry of Human Resource Development here yesterday, the Minister said the Language Institutes should be made fundamentally strong and efficient. Minister of State Sanjay Dhotre was also present in the meeting.
For this purpose, all the vacancies in these institutes need to be filled. The Minister directed the officials of the Ministry to meet the heads of these institutions on a regular basis.
To promote Sanskrit language, more highly qualified Sanskrit teachers/professors should be engaged to give new dimensions to the language both at National and International level. 
The Minister stressed on creation of at least two Sanskrit speaking villages near the Sanskrit Institutions in the country.
In the coming years, the Ministry will establish ‘Bhasha Bhawan’, in which all the institutes related to Indian languages will be located together and work for the betterment of these languages.
