With a view to increasing the acceptability of Punjabi as the language of the industry, the Punjab government has decided to make it the medium of instruction in vocational courses.

Punjab education minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said here on Sunday that the decision was taken in view of the difficulties that the students from rural background face in following instructions. The state has introduced six vocational courses (security; information technology; automobile care; healthcare; beauty and wellness, and retail) that will be taught in Punjabi only.
