On Wednesday, UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar urged Indian universities to allow students to write exams in their native languages, even if the course was taught in English.
Kumar emphasized the importance of higher education institutions in developing textbooks and facilitating teaching and learning in local languages. He encouraged universities to encourage the creation of textbooks in students' mother tongues or languages, the translation of books from other languages, and the use of local languages in the classroom.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) in India intends to offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in regional languages in all disciplines, including commerce, humanities, and science.
In December, Kumar met with representatives from international publishers to discuss translating their books to introduce Indian language courses.
The central government has also advocated for exams to be held in regional languages, as evidenced by the Department of Personnel and Training's decision to hold Staff Selection Commission Multitasking (non-technical) Staff (non-technical) and CHSLE Examinations are available in 13 regional languages in addition to Hindi and English.
