Programme Introduction

In the current area of modernization and westernization, we are turning apart from our own roots. One of the best examples is our deviation from national language Hindi. Overemphasis on the technical subjects has resulted in dearth of qualified people in the field of Hindi language. Nowadays there is a excessive demand of manpower with the expertise in Hindi especially in the field of translation as well as in teaching. So the current course caters to this need.
