In order to make study of Science and Technology easy, Human Resources Development have decided that Sanskrit should be taught in the premier technological institutes of India – the various IIT’s.
HRD Minister, Smriti Irani said “Accordingly, IITs have been requested to teach Sanskrit language especially with reference to study of works which contain scientific knowledge.”
A panel, chaired by former CEC N Gopalaswami, in its report had suggested that IITs may facilitate study of science and technology as reflected in Sanskrit literature along with inter-disciplinary study of Sanskrit and modern subjects.
On Thursday HRD minister Smriti Irani said “In consonance with the recommendations, IITs have been requested to offer Sanskrit as an elective subject or as a language course for students who wish to study the language,”
In 2000, BJP-led National Democratic Alliance’s introduced Sanskrit which had led IIT Bombay and IIT Gandhinagar to have cells and courses specific to Sanskrit studies.
