Hindi Diwas is celebrated every year on 14 September- the Day when the Constituent Assembly decided to declare Hindi as the official language of the Central Government.

While addressing the audience, he said that the main objective to celebrate this day is to highlight to the people for one day in the year that unless they use Hindi completely, Hindi language cannot develop. Prof. Nirmal Vinod, Sahitya Akademi Awardee was the chief guest on the occasion, while Prof. Ashok Gupta, former faculty at the Department of Hindi, University of Jammu presided over the function.
The programme started with lighting of the traditional lamp by the dignitaries.
