The All India Council For Technical Education (AICTE) has taken a significant step towards promoting regional languages in technical education. The council has decided to incorporate Hindi and other regional languages into its learning and teaching processes through an initiative termed AICTE-VAANI (Vibrant Advocacy For Advancement and Nurturing of Indian Languages).

Under this initiative, regional languages will be utilized for research thesis purposes as well. To implement the project, AICTE plans to conduct conferences, seminars, and workshops in selected universities across the country. A funding of Rs 2 crores has been sanctioned to organize 100 such programs in every academic year.

The languages chosen for inclusion in the AICTE-VAANI initiative include Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi, Bengali, Assamese, Odia, and Urdu, in addition to Hindi. The council has planned to conduct 12 seminars in Hindi and eight seminars in each of the other regional languages.

These seminars will cover a wide range of technical topics, such as Advanced Materials, Agrotech, and Food Processing, among others. The initiative aims to promote the use of regional languages in technical education and research, thereby making it more accessible and inclusive for students and scholars across the country.

By embracing regional languages, AICTE seeks to foster a more diverse and inclusive environment for technical education, enabling students and researchers to engage with complex concepts in their native tongues, ultimately contributing to the advancement of knowledge and innovation in various fields.
