The Ministry of Human Resource Development minister Smt Smriti Zubin Iani has announced the launch of a multilingual knowledge portal www.bharatavani.in. It aims to not only ensure universalisation of education but also the creation of a knowledge society in the digital age. The idea behind the initiative is protection, preservation and inclusion of all Indian languages through technological development without discrimination.
The Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL), Mysore, is implementing the project. The portal has been launched in 22 scheduled languages, which eventually will be extended to 100 more languages. Along with the portal, the Ministry has also launched the Bharatavani Multi-lingual app. This will enable users to search for one language text in another language as well as get meanings in different languages. Currently, the app has 35 multilingual dictionaries.
So let’s do:
1. Expand the term CIIL ?
2. Name the portal, recently which has launched by HRD ministry ?
