What is Article 351?

Article 351 of the Constitution provides that:

“It shall be the duty of the Union to promote the spread of the Hindi language to develop it so that it may serve as a medium of expression for all the elements of the composite culture of India and to secure its enrichment by assimilating without interfering with its genius, the forms, style and expressions used in Hindustani and in the other languages of India specified in the 8th Schedule, and by drawing, wherever necessary or desirable, for its vocabulary, primarily, on Sanskrit and secondarily on other languages.”

Therefore, it would appear that the 8th Schedule was intended to promote the progressive use of Hindi and for the enrichment and promotion of that language.
