Tech education should be conducted in Hindi, other languages: Kalraj Mishra
Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra said on Saturday that technological education should be conducted in Hindi and other languages to make it accessible to all. For this, he called on experts to cooperate and make coordinated efforts. Governor Mishra was addressing the ‘Utsav 175’ function organized by the Jaipur chapter of the IIT Roorkee Alumni Association on Saturday.
He suggested taking the initiative through startups towards carbon-free industrial development. He said technical educators should bear in mind the needs of local industries, construction works, public sector when preparing the curriculum and try to ensure maximum use of local resources.
The Governor said that due to the tradition of providing scientific, technical and medical education in English, these courses were not prepared in Indian languages.
He said now that with the initiative taken by the Indian Institute of Translation and Interpretation (IITI), these courses will be available in Indian languages along with English.
He urged the members of IIT Roorkee Alumni Association to cooperate in establishing skill development centers so that capacity building of young people pursuing technical studies in Rajasthan can be achieved.
