Implementation of Rajbhasha on Secunderabad Division.

According to Article 343 (1) of the Constitution, Hindi is the official language of the Union of India. Therefore, in order to ensure the compliance of official language and legal provisions and to promote the use of Hindi in government work, the Department of Official Language was established in June, 1975 as an independent Department of the Home Ministry. From that time onwards, the department is working to increase the progressive use of Hindi in the official work of the Union.

Rajbhasha Organization works under the instructions of Divisional Railway Manager Shri Amit Varadan and direct control of Shri P.C.Tamta, Apar Mukhya Rajbhasha Adhikari and Additional Divisional Railway Manager (Technical). Shri Arun Kumar Mandal is working as Senior Rajbhasha Officer. There are two Senior Translators and three Junior Translators working in Rajbhasha Dept.
