Should the Government's New Schemes be named in Hindi Only?


All schemes should be named in a language which is easily approachable by the people.

Yes, I agree on this, and also people should not only approach the scheme, they should get proper, timely benefits from the scheme. But Country like India which has accepted 22 different languages as scheduled languages and given recognition, status and official encouragement in its written constitution, It should be given importance to achieve the goal of the scheme instead of thinking whether it is named in Hindi or English or any other its scheduled languages. According to Census of India of 2001, India has 122 major languages and 1599 other languages. However, figures from other sources vary, primarily due to differences in definition of the terms "language" and "dialect". The 2001 Census recorded 30 languages which were spoken by more than a million native speakers and 122 which were spoken by more than 10,000 people. We the people of India should be proud of to be a citizen of such vast linguistic state in the world. And we the citizens of India have the responsibility to save cherish such a unique feature among others in the world.

"Make in India" scheme named in English language which is related to Foreign direct investment, which is to attract foreigners to boast our economy and easily approachable by investors from different parts of the world, Its name itself try to explain some inputs to the upcoming investors either domestic or international. In the same way PM Jan Dhan Yojana, Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay Shramev Jayate Karyakram, Antyodaya Yojana, were named in Hindi. Citizens of India are not worried about the naming of the scheme; it should reach each and every citizen in all parts of the India instead of saying south and north India. We have to realise, utilize, follow and enjoy the advantages of the schemes.

MGNREGA scheme is very important successful ongoing scheme which was named in leaders name (English). This scheme aims at enhancing the livelihood security of people in rural areas by guaranteeing hundred days of wage employment in a financial year to a rural household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work. Jawahar Rozgar Yojana (JRY)-When the Seventh Five Year Plan came to an end, two initiatives of the Indian Government − NREP (National Rural Employment Program) and RLEGP (Rural Landless Employment Guarantee Program) were combined together. This gave rise to the birth of Jawahar Rozgar Yojana which was launched during 1st April 1989.Jawahar Gram Samridhi Yojana (JGSY) is the restructured, streamlined and comprehensive version of the erstwhile Jawahar Rozgar Yojana (JRY). Launched on 1st April 1999, it has been designed to improve the quality of life of the rural poor by providing them additional gainful employment. These schemes named after leaders mixed with Hindi language which is approachable by all parts of India. In case of above we would not be able to conclude that government scheme which named in Hindi is easily approachable by all Indian citizens.

Hindi is most widely speaking language in our country, but it is not necessary to name all schemes in Hindi only, naming of the scheme should reach all people not only the maximum number of people. Leaders should concentrate on the steps of execution of the new schemes instead of giving importance of its naming method. It is not mandatory to name a scheme in Hindi language in our country. The Constitution of India does not give any languages the status of national language, so we can name a scheme on the basis of its application, execution, use, benefits, benificiaries etc. In this manner it will be reachable to all citizens.

Conclusion:
Though Hindi is widely speaking language in our country, we the citizens of India should cherish unique linguistic feature of our country in the world and try to name the scheme on the basis of its nature and concentrate on its speedy, wealthy execution among the citizens.
