New Delhi : German Ambassador Michael Steiner said the Supreme Court has allowed teaching of German language in KVs from class 6 to 8 and government should implement the order. Germany welcomes the Supreme Court verdict on the German language issue in Kendriya Vidyalayas and expects implementation of it.

“The court has, as you know in December last year, provided a very good solution for pragmatic outcome which would allow to continue to teach German in KV schools. Under the current situation I think what we need is the implementation of what the court has said and I am confident that exactly this will happen,”

Steiner said in a media briefing on Wednesday ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Germany. "It is also possible to teach German in the classes IX-X. Under the current situation, I think what we need is the implementation of what the court has said...," the German envoy asserted.

According to ministry sources, the government will run the new terms of agreement with its interlocutors on the German side in a day or two. The government's proposed memorandum of understanding (MoU), however, does not offer any specifics on how many schools in Germany will have to teach Indian languages. It also does not commit any expenditure to train teachers in German schools.

These details, ministry officials told ET, will be worked out later. The fresh MoU, which will be signed by the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan and the Goethe-Institut, has been drafted after MEA asked HRD ministry last December to sort out all outstanding issues over the German language controversy fearing that it could cast a shadow over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Berlin.
