I would like to know about the possibility of continuing my kids education back in India from an NRI background. What system of schools can they choose under current restrictions of compulsory mother tongue?

You can very conveniently continue your child’s education in India. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is the largest board in India with over 17000 schools affiliated to it.


As far as the mother-tongue issue is concerned. Hindi, as a language isn’t compulsory all over India.


Under the new education policy, the states have the power to decide a 3-language structure for the students where they will learn 3 languages and 2 out of these 3 have to be native-Indian languages. So, depending on your state, you can choose a native language associated with that state (eg. Marathi in Maharashtra, Malayalam in Kerala, etc.) instead of Hindi.


The focus has now shifted to the overall development of the students in India. Also, it depends on the states whether they apply the new policy or not. Given the changes, CBSE is still the best option to opt for to ensure proper education for your child.
