MEANING OF LANGUAGE FROM WIKIPEDIA :-

A language is a structured system of communication used by humans, based on speech and gesture, sign, or often writing. The structure of language is its grammar and the free components are its vocabulary.

WHAT IS NATIONAL LANGUAGE?

A National language is a language ( or language variant, e.g. dialect ) that has some connection – de facto – or de jure – with a nation. ( de facto describes practice that exist in reality, even though they are not officially recognized ) ( de jure – describes practices that are legally recognized, regardless of whether the practice exists in reality. ) There is little consistency in the use of this term. One or more languages spoken as first languages in the territory of a country maybe referred to informally or designated in legislation as national language of the country. National languages are mentioned in over 150 world constitutions.

National language is used for political , cultural, and social functions.

WHAT IS THE 8TH SCHEDULE OF THE INDIAN CONSTITUTION?

The 8th Schedule of Indian Constitution deals with the Official Languages in India. 22 Official languages have been mentioned in the Indian Constitution, which are recognized as official languages.

Initially 14 languages were already included in the constitution. All the other languages were included through different amendment acts of the constitution.

Sindhi language was added to the list through 21st Constitutional Amendment act in 1967.

Manipuri, Konkani and Nepali were added by the 71st Constitutional Amendment Act of 1992.

And in the 92nd Constitutional Amendment Act of 2003 Maithili, Dogri, Bodo and Santali were added to the list.

There is a demand of 38 more languages for recognition.

WHAT IS OFICIAL LANGUAGE?

The language or one of the languages that is accepted by country’s government, is taught in schools, used in the courts of law etc is considered as Official Language.

An official language is a language given a special status in a particular country, state or other jurisdiction. Typically the term “official language” does not refer to the language used by a people or country, but by its government. 178 countries recognize an official language, 101 of them recognizing more than one. ( Wikipedia )

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NATIONAL AND OFFICIAL LANGUAGE:-

A National Language is a source or sign of identity for a nation or a country. National language gets its status because it is spoken by majority of the population as the first language…An official language is a language that is given a legal status in a particular country, state, or other jurisdiction.

STATUS OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE:-

In India, use of English was continued by the Official Language Act 1963 as an official language along with Hindi. But English language is yet to be recognized by the 8th Schedule of the Constitution of India.

OFFICIAL LANGUAGE OF INDIA:-

As per Article 343(1) of the constitution provides that Hindi in Devanagari script shall be the official language of the Union.

Article 343(2) also provided for continuing the use of English in official work of the Union for a period of 15 years(i.e.up to 25 January 1965) from the date of commencement of the constitution.

Article 343(3) empowered the Parliament to provide by law for continued use of English for official purposes even after 25 January 1965. Accordingly section 3(2)of the Official Language Act, 1963 (amended in 1967) provides for continuing the use of English in official work after 25 January 1965.

The Act also lays down that both Hindi and English shall compulsorily be used for certain specified purposes such as Resolutions, General orders, Rules, Notifications, Administrative and other Reports and Press communiques and official papers to be laid before a House of Parliament, Contracts, Agreement Licenses, Permits, Tender Notices and Forms of Tender etc.
