In a transformative approach, the Bihar governmenth has decided to provide medical courses to students in Hindi language from the next academic session.

Terming the move as a historic step, Bihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey on Tuesday said that decision has been taken after thorough discussions on the necessary aspects, including the availability of Hindi textbooks for the MBBS course.

"This decision aligns with the government's goal of promoting Hindi and making it a global language,” said Pandey.

This new arrangement is based on the recommendations of a nine-member committee. It will be implemented in accordance with the syllabus of AIIMS Delhi that is followed by the students clearing the NEET-UG 2024.

With this initiative, students will have the option to pursue medical courses in either English or Hindi. It will also be beneficial to students who are more comfortable in the Hindi language in comparison to English. This move will also help students pursue medical courses who have finished their schooling in Hindi.

As per INAS report, Bihar has approximately 85,000 government schools where Hindi medium is the preferred mode of imparting education.
