News - Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) wants students to fill Mphil & PhD forms in Hindi

The Jawaharlal Nehru University has made it mandatory for students to fill the MPhil and PhD submission form in both Hindi and English. The move was criticised by a lot many students and they also accused the administration of imposing Hindi on them. Till last year, students could fill the form in either of the languages.

Reason behind the decision:

  • However, the university said the decision has been taken because since last year the students are being given bilingual certificates which contains their details in Hindi and English. "The certificates given to students after they complete their course now carries their details in Hindi and English. That is why we have asked them to fill their details in MPhil and PhD submission form in Hindi and English. This will ensure there are no spelling mistakes,"....said Pramod Kumar (JNU Registrar).

Unfair Decision:

Satarupa Chakraborty, JNU students' union general secretary said, ''The students were going through their last hour of submission of M.Phil / Ph.D dissertation / thesis today. Students were severely harassed for filing an online tracking form which should contain title of the dissertation in Hindi''. She said that on the verge of submission, those who are not familiar with Hindi, had to run from pillar to post to find someone who could write their dissertation title in Hindi.
She also said "In a central university where students come from all across the country, how they can possibly write their names or dissertation titles in Hindi? And more importantly, why should they write these mandatorily in Hindi? Will our VC be able to write his name in Hindi or our PM in Tamil or Malayalam?,".

Students protest :

Satarupa Chakraborty said many students wrote their dissertation title in their local language script as a mark of protest.

As per a Telegraph report:

JNU Teachers' Association secretary Pradeep Shinde said "this is a foolish thing to impose at the last moment". "The titles of thesis are tongue-twisting even in English. Where does the administration get such ideas from?" He asked.
