A committee has been set up to fix fees in private schools. The committee will review and finalize the rates and release them. Various organizations came and met me to make tamil a compulsory subject in the CBSE syllabus. We have consulted the chief minister and Department Secretary in this regard.
We will examine what are the possible elements to make tamil a compulsory subject, which states have similar and take action accordingly. There is no hindi stuffing in it. They can take the subject language of their choice and study. Imposing that you have to read this is just imposing. This is misunderstood.
