Hindi Diwas - September 14

Hindi Diwas (हिन्दी दिवस) is celebrated in India on September 14 every year to raise awareness about the language and also commemorate the event when it was adopted as one of the official languages of India. It was on 14 September 1949 that a compromise was reached—during the drafting of the Constitution of India—on the languages that were to have official status in the Republic of India. The Constituent Assembly of India recognised and adopted Hindi as the official language of the country.

The President felicitates people and institutions for their contribution to the Hindi language and literature.  Rajbhasha Kirti Puraskar award was instituted by the Department of Official Language (OL), Ministry of Home Affairs, the government of India, to honor Central government offices, banks and PSUs for excellence in the implementation of the OL Policy and its usage in the three regions, A, B and C. The  award carries a memento and a citation. Rajbhasha Gaurav Puraskar is bestowed on authors of well-researched Hindi articles, published in official magazines of Central government firms.
