Central Hindi Translation Bureau

In view of the important and inevitable need for translation in the progressive use of the Official Language Hindi, it was obligatory to make arrangements for translation work in the administrative setup of the Government of India. Central Hindi Directorate  was set up under the Ministry of Education in the year 1960 for translation work in the administrative setup of the Government of India.

However, the implementation of Official Language was the responsibility of Ministry of Home Affairs, hence the work of translating non-statutory procedural literature was transferred to the Ministry of Home Affairs. Therefore, on 1st March, 1971 Central Translation Bureau was set up under the Ministry of Home Affairs and it was entrusted with the responsibility of translating the non-statutory procedural literature of the Ministries, Departments, Offices, Undertakings, etc. of the Central Government. At present, Central Translation Bureau is working as a subordinate office of the Department of Official Language under Ministry of Home Affairs.
