Malayalam teaching to resume in DU
Teaching in Malayalam language, which has been suspended in Delhi University due to shortage of teachers, would commence as soon faculty posts are filled, the HRD Ministry has said.

 

Minister of State for HRD Jitin Prasada in a letter to CPI-M Rajya Sabha member from Kerala K N Balagopal said Delhi University has already advertised the posts for Malayalam faculty and it is in the process of hiring them.

"Teaching in this language will commence as soon as the positions are filled," Prasada said.

The Minister's response came after Balagopal demanded in the Rajya Sabha inclusion of Malayalam in the central government language development programme.

Prasada also informed that Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore, under the aegis of the HRD Ministry undertakes a language development programme on Malayalam language, including a ten-month training programme.

It has also developed a corpus, both of text and speech, to the tune of 3-4 million words for facilitating Malayalam computing.
