The research centre had received such a letter before. They have also been asked why that instruction is not being obeyed. The guidelines state that replies to letters written in Hindi must be made in Hindi. Employees must also write a service book in Hindi.

Since the Modi government came to power, several non-Hindi speaking states have spoken out against the imposition of Hindi against the Centre. 

Recently, the name of Baranagar and Dakshineswar stations were also written in Hindi. Controversy arose over that matter. However, the railway authority replaced the nameplate later.
