Sitakant Mahapatra Report
The government is examining the Sitakant Mahapatra Report and a report given by Union Public Service Commission, UPSC in order to take a decision on the inclusion of Bhojpuri language in the 8th schedule of the Constitution. Sitakant Mahapatra on the issue had submitted its report in 2004 but a final decision was yet to be taken.
