Urdu Academy to coach IAS aspirants in Urdu subjects: Sisodia

New Delhi, Sep 17 (UNI) Deputy Chief Minister and minister for art, culture and languages Manish Sisodia on Tuesday said Urdu Academy should start providing coaching to IAS aspirants in Urdu subjects.

Mr Sisodia interacted with toppers in the Urdu subjects hailing from various universities from across Delhi on Monday evening.

"Urdu Academy should start providing coaching to interested students. Study material in Urdu will soon be accessible to students who want to write their papers in the medium. In the way English and Hindi are treated as the standard language of teaching and study, Urdu language will also be treated at par with them,' he said.

The event organised by Urdu Academy, Delhi, hosted toppers of universities, boards excelling in Urdu language and were were felicitated by Mr Sisodia.

In a candid conversation with the toppers present in the felicitation ceremony, he spoke about the vitality of Urdu as a subject and its career prospects in various domains.

'There was a general concern around students not preferring Urdu as their medium due to the lack of study material provided in the language, in their respective colleges. Another concern around Urdu not being a favoured stream of study amongst students and scholars alike was the collective perception that it’s not a job-oriented stream. A number of aspirants of Urdu subject commented on the diminishing importance of the subject in the career domain,' he said.

Students excelling in the field of Urdu were awarded at the event. They represented Jamia Millia Islamia, Jawahar Lal Nehru, District Institute of Education and Training and Maharishi Valmiki College of Education.
