SC nod for mid-session switch to Sanskrit

The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave the green signal for introduction of Sanskrit as the third language replacing German in Kendriya Vidyalayas from the current academic session.

The nod came from a bench of Justices A R Dave and Kurian Joseph after the Centre assured that the mid-session switch from German to Sanskrit would in no way hinder the academic progress of the students.

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said the HRD ministry has addressed the apprehensions of parents of KV students. He said students would be required to appear in Sanskrit examination from the next academic session (2015-16). He also said the schools would provide facilities to students who wanted to pursue German or any other language as an optional subject.

Satisfied with the arrangements, the bench disposed of a petition by some parents of KV students. KV Sangathan had clarified that Class VIII students would not face difficulty as their marks in German in classes VI and VII would make them eligible to sit for class X board examination.
