Under the new plan, a student would have to take up three Indian languages listed in schedule VIII of the Constitution, one of which could be English. All three languages would be main subjects in the Class X board exams. Students can study a foreign language, or a non-listed Indian language, as an additional subject, which will be non-qualifying in nature.


According to a senior HRD official, even if the new plan is approved by the ministry and CBSE starts working on the scheme it would not "happen before 2019-20". "The present batches of students who are now in class VII will be able to appear in the board exam under the existing scheme and will not be burdened with learning a new language mid-way. The matter can be taken up by the CBSE governing body once it's finalised by the ministry later this year so that the scheme can be started," the official said. Read more
