The HRD Ministry has also been instructed to form a policy in consultation with the state governments to make the language compulsory.

"The HRD Ministry should make serious efforts to make Hindi language compulsory in curriculum. As a first step, Hindi should be made a compulsory subject up to standard X in all schools of CBSE and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan," the Presidential order said.

"The Centre should form a policy in consultation with state governments," it added.

The recommendations were made in the ninth report of the Committee of Parliament on Official Language.

CBSE had last year recommended a three-language formula – English and any two Indian languages – to be expanded to classes IX and X.

However, the HRD Ministry is yet to take a call on the suggestion.
