Hindi Diwas

Hindi Diwas is observed on September 14 to promote Hindi language. Also known as National Hindi Day, it marks the day in 1949, when the Constituent Assembly adopted Hindi in Devanagari script as an official language of the Central Government under Article 343 of the Indian Constitution. While this day seeks to promote Hindi language at the national level, the World Hindi Day (Vishwa Hindi Diwas) is observed on January 10 to promote the language at global scale.
The day was celebrated for the first time on September 14, 1953. As part of this year’s celebrations, Films Division is observing Hindi Pakhwada from September 1 to 15 to promote the use of practical Hindi in official work.
