Centre refuses to back in German-Sanskrit row, says no Sanskrit exam in current academic session

The central government on Friday clearly refused to back from its decision to replace German with Sanskrit as the third language in Kendriya Vidyalayas but told the Supreme Court that there will be no examination for Sanskrit in the current academic session.

Appearing before a bench headed by Justice A R Dave, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said the Centre has decided that no examination would be conducted for Sanskrit paper and KV students can also continue with German language as an additional subject in the current session.

“It is a good solution,” Justice Dave said, adding, “Even as a father I would agree with it.” The Centre’s decision not to conduct exam for Sanskrit, introduced in the middle of the ongoing session, came after the apex court expressed concern at the last hearing that students would be burdened and suffer because of the government’s decision.
