The Central Institute of Indian Languages was set up on the 17th
July 1969 with a view to assist and co-ordinate the development of Indian Languages.
The Institute is charged with the responsibility of serving as a nucleus to bring
together all the research and literary output from the various linguistic streams
to a common head and narrow the gap between the basic research and developmental
research in the field of languages and linguistics in India.
The Central institute of Indian Languages also runs seven Regional
Centres in the various linguistic regions of the country to help and meet the demand
for trained teachers to implement the three-language formula and thereby provides
assurance to linguistic minorities.
