Regional language courses will likely be offered across fields by UGC.

UGC

People with knowledge of the matter stated on Monday that the University Grants Commission (UGC) will soon present a blueprint for implementing undergraduate and graduate programs in regional languages across the nation in all academic fields, including business, the humanities, and science.

According to authorities, the higher education authority would shortly notify an apex committee to create the strategy in partnership with the Bharatiya Bhasha Samiti, a body of experts under the Union ministry of education to promote Indian languages.

The action builds on the numerous measures taken by the Union government to implement regional languages as a medium of instruction in both schools and colleges in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

Engineering and medical courses have previously been offered in regional languages by the Center in a number of states. The Bar Council of India (BCI) also assembled a team in June to make suggestions about the implementation of regional language courses at law schools.

UGC head M. Jagadesh Kumar stated that the planned committee will initially begin discussions with publishers of the common, widely used textbooks for the translation process.
