Library

 
  The Headquarters of Central Hindi Directorate (CHD) and Commission for Scientific and Technical Terminology (CSTT) at present is situated at West Block-7, Ramakrishna Puram, New Delhi –110066. Both the pioneer offices entrusted with the responsibility of promotion and propagation, developing and enriching Hindi, have all along, been making relentless efforts to fulfil the responsibility of the government. These organisations have a huge common Library which is unique in all respects. This library was established in 1952 under then Ministry of Education, Govt of India as a Hindi Division, when CHD and CSTT were set up in 1960 and 1961 respectively.

The CHD and CSTT have been inviting from time to time, outside experts through out the year to hold meetings to prepare the Dictionaries, Glossaries and Definitional Dictionaries in different Indian and Foreign languages. The prime objective of library is to provide all necessary reference information and reference books from the library to fulfill the work in both offices.
