Class 1 and 2 students to study Sanskrit in Uttarakhand


The government of Uttarakhand has made Sanskrit a compulsory subject for class 1 and 2 students. The state government is talking to the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), so as to set a syllabus.

Uttarakhand has Sanskrit and Hindi as official languages.

How things have changed?

Sanskrit was compulsory from class 3 to class 8 state-board students earlier. Now, students from class 1 to 8 will compulsorily have to study the subject. From class 9 to 12, students can choose to study Sanskrit as an optional subject.
