madurai: Madurai Mp Writes To Center Against Hindi Knowledge For Job | Madurai News

Madurai: Madurai MP, Su Venkatesan has written to Union minister of social justice and empowerment stating that knowledge of Hindi should not be insisted as criteria for selection of personnel for central government departments and is in violation of the rules.
The letter comes after the National Institute for Empowerment of Persons with Multiple Disabilities (Divyangjan) at Muttukadu near Chennai prescribed knowledge of Hindi at the level of understanding for the post of assistant controller of examinations.
The walk-in for the post under contract basis has been scheduled on April 22. In the notification, ‘Knowledge of Hindi at the level of understanding’ has been prescribed as one of the qualifications.
This condition is a violation of The Official Languages ​​(Use for Official Purpose of the Union) Rules, 1976 (As Amended, 1987, 2007 2011), where it has been clearly mandated that communications from a central government office to state or Union Territory in the region ‘C’ or to any office (not being a central government office) or person in such state shall be in English. The communications from a central government office in region ‘C’ to a state or Union Territory of region ‘A’ or region ‘B’ or to any office or person in such state may be either in Hindi or in English.
Hence, knowledge of Hindi should not be insisted as criteria for selection of personnel for the offices mechanically throughout the country. Secondly, this condition puts candidates from Tamil Nadu in a disadvantageous position in the selection and it is nothing but an imposition of Hindi, the MP said.
