Its goal is to improve access and quality of education in Indigenous communities so that children can learn in their native language while remaining connected to their culture, according to the statement.

The program is part of NEP 2020’s overall objective of making education more inclusive and accessible to children in their local languages. During a ceremony marking the ‘Shala Pravesh Utsav’ (school entrance feast) on July 5, CM Sai stated that textbooks and teaching materials would be translated into local dialects, and teachers would be trained in these languages as part of the project.

School Education Secretary Siddharth Komal Pardeshi stated that books for schoolchildren are being created in 18 native languages and dialects in Chhattisgarh. Pardeshi stated, “In the first phase, courses would be developed in Chhattisgarhi, Sargujiha, Halbi, Sadari, Gondi, and Kudukh.

The assistance of litterateurs, folk artists, and compilers from across the state will be sought. Aside from that, participation will be sought from senior residents and teachers.” Dinesh Sharma, Principal of High School Bagia, appreciated the initiative and stated that tribal youngsters possess talents.

He stated that more and more youngsters from tribal communities will have the opportunity to succeed if they receive education in the local tongue. Every student in India is required to acquire three languages, according to the NEP 2020 formula: two of the languages should be local to the country, including one regional language and the third language should be English. A similar announcement had been made in January 2020 by Bhupesh Baghel, the former chief minister of Chhattisgarh.


The Chhattisgarh government’s initiative to integrate local languages and dialects into elementary education aligns with the NEP 2020’s objective of making education more inclusive and accessible. By developing bilingual books in 18 local languages, the state aims to improve educational access and quality in tribal districts, allowing children to learn in their native language while staying connected to their cultural roots.

This progressive step promises to unlock the potential of tribal students, providing them with opportunities to excel. As textbooks and teaching materials are translated and teachers receive training, the program is poised to create a more equitable and culturally resonant educational environment for Indigenous communities in Chhattisgarh. It is a great opportunity for all the students and a great initiative.
