SSC MTS Exam 2023 is To Be Conducted in 13 Regional Languages

On Tuesday, the Union Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said that the Centre has approved the conduct of the SSC MTS examination in 13 regional languages in addition to Hindi and English. There have been persistent demands from different states, particularly from southern India, to hold SSC examinations in languages other than English and Hindi.

The decision will result in lakhs of aspirants taking part in the examination in their mother tongue/regional language and improving their selection prospects. Singh also said that the action is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to ensure that everyone gets an equal opportunity to apply for jobs and that no one is disenfranchised or placed at a disadvantage because of a language barrier.

According to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), besides Hindi and English, the question paper will be set in the 13 regional languages, namely Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Odia, Urdu, Punjabi, Manipuri (also Meiti) and Konkani.
