 Delhi to get Konkani academy soon

Team L&M

To facilitate the promotion and growth of Konkani language and culture in the National Capital, the Delhi government has approved the setting up of a Konkani academy. This move is being seen as part of the strategy to strengthen the base of Aam Aadmi Party in Goa which goes to Assembly polls next year.
The academy will be set up under the Department of Art, Culture and Languages of the Delhi government for the people of New Delhi to have exposure to Konkani culture, language, literature and folk arts.

Konkani is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by the Konkani people, primarily along the western coastal region (Konkan) of India. It is one of the 22 scheduled languages mentioned in the 8th schedule of the Constitution.

In 2019, the Delhi government constituted 14 new language academies under the Department of Art, Culture and Languages. The purpose of a language academy is not only to cater to the speakers of that language, but also to reach out to a wider audience. The Department of Art, Culture and Languages has decided that the new academy will introduce various awards to promote and reward the good works done by the people in the fields of Konkani language and culture. The government will also provide language courses through this academy.
The academy will soon be allocated an office space with all the necessary infrastructure.
