Soon, Indian Railways to replace Urdu with Sanskrit on station platform signboards in Uttarakhand; here’s why

No more Urdu railway signboards in Uttarakhand! The names of railway stations written in the Urdu language on station platform signboards in the state of Uttarakhand will now be written in the Sanskrit language. Recently, Chief Public Relations Officer, Northern Railway, Deepak Kumar was quoted in a PTI report saying that the move is in keeping with the Railway Manual as per which, the name of a railway station on the station’s platform signboards should be displayed in the second official language of the state concerned after Hindi language and English language.

According to Kumar, instead of Hindi, English, and Urdu languages, the names of railway stations on platform signboards across the state of Uttarakhand will now be displayed in Hindi, English, and Sanskrit. The Chief Public Relations Officer further said that since Sanskrit is the second official language of the hill state, the names of railway stations written in the Urdu language on platform signboards in the state will now be replaced with those in the Sanskrit language.
