ABSTRACT
The article discusses the rights provided by the Indian Constitution to minorities with regards to the preservation of their language, religion and culture, and safeguard the interest of minority languages in education. Minorities have a right to transmit their values and worldview through the medium of education, as observed in international standards. The Polish Minorities Treaty in 1919 stresses the importance of the linguistic medium of education in establishing minority identity. There is some confusion concerning minority languages under the Indian Constitution, with Indian languages such as Tulu, Dogri and Kodagu considered as minority languages as compared to languages of the Eighth Schedule.
