The Haryana government would request the Governor, Prof Kaptan Singh Solanki, to send a written communication to the President so that the use of Hindi language could be started in the judicial procedure in the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
Stating this on Tuesday, an official spokesman said that concerted efforts were being made to make the use of Hindi language mandatory in judicial work in the high court.
After getting approval, the hearing of petitions is being done in Hindi language in four high courts of the country at Allahabad (Uttar Pradesh), Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Patna (Bihar).
After hearing, the judgments are also being delivered in Hindi language.
In view of this, the Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar, has expressed his interest that approval may be given for use of Hindi language in the Punjab and Haryana High Court also so that litigants are able to understand the entire proceedings and are able to present their views.
Out to promote the use of Hindi, the state government had recently issued directions that electricity and water bills are issued in Hindi language also.
It has also been decided that circulars would be issued in Hindi language in the state.
The Languages Department would ensure that circulars related to all departments are issued in simple Hindi so that general public could be benefitted.
