The new demand is arising among the teachers after the schools in Delhi have incorporated Maithili as a language. The department of Modern Indian Languages (MIL) is raising this demand of adding Maithili by a section of teachers on Saturday. The various courses offered by 11 MILs are Bengali, Gujrati, Assamese, Kannada, Telugu, and Tamil.

The teachers wrote a letter to the DU Vice-Chancellor, Yogesh Tyagi who is a former Academic Council (AC) member and Rajiv Kumar Verma, Associate Professor at the Satyavati College was among the teachers who want the Maithili language to be introduced in DU.

The letter says the following, The language Maithili is included as an optional subject in UPSC and has proved to be really fruitful as many candidates have successfully cleared the exam, also recently the Government of Delhi has included Maithili as an alternative language paper from class 8 to class 12 in the schools, already the University of Delhi has incorporated Maithili core/elective under the list of languages with the others, therefore the Varsity should commence the process of introducing Maithili as a subject in the DU’s prestigious Department of MIL.

Mr. Verma said that his demands were supported by other teachers also, furthermore, he added that the Varsity has many Maithili speaking students and thus the demands keep on springing by the students for adding it as a subject. According to Rakesh Jha, member of University of Delhi Executive Council, if Maithili is introduced in the Varsity many students are going to follow up as many students belonging from Bihar and UP have Maithili as their mother tongue.

Also almost around 50,000 students have applied from the UP region and around 15,000 from the Bihar region of India. The Purvanchali students will incur the most benefit says DUSU President, Akshit Dahiya.
