Maharashtra government has issued a notification to all government departments stating that Marathi language should be used as official language in government office works. The notice also stated that if any one fails to adhere to the new rule, then their annual increment will be delayed.
The circular said that the government officers release the official documents and orders in English due to which there is a huge communication gap between the government and common people. In order to make things more easier for the common man, the Maharashtra government strictly order every government departments to make the use of Marathi mandatory in work. This will also help the commoners to take the benefit from the government schemes.
