Abstract: India is a vast country where a large proportion of population uses Hindi as their mother tongue and for formal communications. No language has been designated as "National Language" in Indian constitution. However, several provisions have been made in the Constitution for promoting uses of Hindi in official as well as for other communications. It is essential for the progress of any country to be technologically self-reliant. Thus, scientific and technical writings must be in the language that can be understood by the common people so that the benefits of science and technology also reach to the common people. Since, a large population in India is non-Hindi speaking, it is essential that other regional languages along with Hindi is encouraged for scientific and technical writings so that the fruits of development through use of science and technology reaches to the common people also. At present very limited number of scientific and technical journals and magazines are published in Hindi or regional languages that need to be increased for the benefit of common people.
