The Cabinet also approved the proposal of bringing an amendment to the Haryana Official Language Act, 1969 to get Hindi language authorised as the language for the purposes of proceedings, any judgment, decree or orders passed or made by the courts and tribunals subordinate to the High Court of Punjab and Haryana.
“To spread the propagation of Hindi as the language of the people of the State, it is necessary that this language should be used in day-to-day work.
