Task Force For Mother Tongue Push In IITs, NITs


The Union education ministry has set up a task force to prepare a road map to impart technical education in the mother tongue even as its recent decision to start engineering courses in vernacular at some of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) from next year drew sharp criticism from the faculty members of the premier technical institutes.

'It is a step in the direction towards achieving Prime Minister's vision that students may pursue the professional courses such as medicine, engineering, law and so on in their mother tongue,' education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said after setting up the task force on Wednesday .

No language will be imposed on any student but enabling provisions should be made so that bright students are not deprived of technical education due to lack of knowledge of the English language, he added.
