Speaking to Education Times, AICTE Chairman Anil Sahasrabuddhi said, “We have approved BTech courses in five different languages namely Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali and Hindi from July 15, 2021. Many universities have shown interest in starting BTech courses regionally. Languages, however, need to be communicated transparently to colleges or universities. Recently, Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering (PCCOE) in Pune sought permission to start an engineering course in Marathi.

“This practice of allowing colleges to start courses in regional languages is in line with NEP 2020. This is done to make it easier for students to learn in their mother tongue. For example, if some students are proficient in Kannada, they are forced to learn English. Should not be done, this will reduce the level of education.
Savitri Bai Phule Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering, Pune, affiliated to Pune University, has received approval from AICTE to start BTech course in Marathi in July this year.
The aim of this whole initiative is to ensure that students in regional language schools are not left out. Most of these students lose confidence and face cultural shocks, ”he added.
AICTE SWAYAM MOOC has created a support system for translated content and good quality books in Indian language, Sahasrabuddhi added.
Harbhajan Bansal, Dean, Academic Affairs, Guru Jambeshwar University, Hisar District, Haryana, said, “We are in the process of discussing a proposal on the availability of books in Hindi and have not finalized anything yet. When publishers from across the state find out that engineering will be taught in Hindi, they will enter into the translation of the engineering book into Hindi with the permission of the author. ”
We welcome AICTE’s initiative, but want some more clarity on this. If we can start an engineering course in Hindi, we can do it in July-August from the next academic year. Also, teachers need some time to prepare for Hindi teaching. Admission to engineering course in Haryana is done by Haryana State Counseling Society. To teach engineering in Hindi, we need additional classrooms and recruit new faculty and non-teaching staff. ”
