To promote the use of Hindi, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) will establish a 'Rajbhasha Cell' in all its 56 regional centres, officials said Tuesday.

The cell will comprise of five members -- a regional director, an assistant regional director, coordinators and staff.

Sharad Gupta, secretary of Rajbhasha in the home ministry, said the objective should be to make Hindi hassle free and meaningful.

"It is not necessary to use Hindi in its literary form everywhere, rather if we use the language spoken in its daily usage then it will make the task much easier," he said.
