Besides Tamil, Sanskrit, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam are among the languages declared as classical in India.

According to Article 343 of the Constitution, the official language of the union government is Hindi in Devanagari script. The Eighth Schedule has 22 languages including Hindi.

Article 345 deals with official language or languages of a state. It says a state legislature may by law adopt any one or more languages for all or any of the official purposes of that state.
