The Supreme Court has asked the Centre to consider not replacing German language with Sanskrit in Kendriya Vidyalayas in the middle of the ongoing academic session and implement the decision from the next academic year, saying, “Why are you punishing students for your mistake?”

While appreciating Centre’s decision to introduce Sanskrit, the apex court, however, said that changing the language in the middle of the session would put additional burden on students.

The bench turned down the plea of the Centre which contended that German language cannot be a third language as the MoU signed three years back by the government with the German authorities is wrong and cannot be followed.
