NEW DELHI: Centre is planning to introduce law courses in regional languages under the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 after introducing various courses including BTech, according to a Hindustan Times report.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has begun discussions with the colleges, universities and higher education institutions that offer law programmes, officials told Hindustan Times.
UGC chairperson M Jagadesh Kumar reportedly said that the commission aims to start degree programmes in Indian regional languages beginning with law programmes.
“Law is one area where our students will benefit if they study in regional languages. Lawyers can prepare documents in regional languages and also interact with their clients in their mother tongues. In local courts also, arguments take place only in the local languages…Therefore, we are parallelly discussing this with the vice-chancellors of national universities and other educational institutions. And many of them have shown a very positive attitude towards introducing courses in Indian languages for law courses,” Kumar was quoted as saying.
In addition to this, the Centre is also mulling over introducing UG and PG programmes for science and humanities streams in regional languages, the report said.
Adding that UGC will also contribute to translation of books into regional languages by forming a panel of experts, Kumar further said, “After identifying the texts required in our degree programmes that need to be translated in Indian languages, we will hold a dialogue with national and international publishers. We will discuss with them how these books can be translated into Indian languages and printed locally in India.”
In July 2021, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) approved 14 engineering colleges across eight states in the country to offer select BTech courses in regional languages. The BTech courses will be taught in 11 regional languages including Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam, Bengali, Assamese, Punjabi and Odia.
