Sanskrit in KVs: SC seeks clarity

more-in

The Supreme Court on Monday sought the government to clarify the implications of its decision to replace German with Sanskrit as the third language in Kendriya Vidyalayas. The parents argued that the decision has been taken without “application of mind” by the government about the plight of students who will appear for the Class X board exams.

Taking a serious view, a Bench of Justices Anil R. Dave and Kurian Joseph asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi to clarify with the government. Advocate Reena Singh, appearing for the parents, submitted that CBSE norms stipulate that a student has to complete three-year language course before allowed to appear for the board exams. But the change in third language in mid-session would not allow them to do so.
