Dehra Dun: Uttarakhand government, which had accorded Sanskrit the status of second official language of the state last year, has set up a separate Sanskrit education board for giving recognition to language schools.

Uttarakhand Sanskrit Education Board (USEB) would prepare the syllabus and publish books for class I to class 12 besides holding examinations and evaluating their answer-sheets, said Dr Vachaspati Maithani, Director of Sanskrit education.

The board would also arrange for training of Acharyas (teachers) and Pracharyas (headmasters) of the schools, he said.

Maithani said a notification to this effect has already been issued by the government.
