Chairing a meeting of Hindi Advisory Committee, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said that, in spite of government’s emphasis on increased use of Hindi in official work, still a lot needs to be done in this direction.

Singh said that Hindi has the capacity to serve not only as a common medium of communication for whole country, but it also carries high stakes for youngsters who aspire for jobs in corporate sector and multi-national companies where knowledge of Hindi is given an additional weightage during selection.

Minister of State for Personnel Singh said the move does not aim to impose Hindi, but to inspire voluntary adoption of the language in the larger interests of administration and ease of governance.
