CSTT in an indirect way publishes university level books on various subjects through Hindi Granth Academies and University Cells established in different states. CSTT provides funds and monitors/ coordinates the work done by Hindi Granth Academies in publishing university level books. In this case, the scheme operates as per the guidelines of the Grant-in-aid Scheme (05-01-31) of CSTT and the revised scheme of book production in Hindi and regional languages vide Ministry of Education's Resolution No. F.7-2/79-D.III (L) dated 12.4.1979 under the major head 3601and sub-head 05.01.31.  Grants are released to Granth Academies and University Cells situated in different states of the country as per the guidelines of the University Book Production Schemes. In this case the overall guidelines specified in the Resolution of Ministry of Education are followed.

As in case of Hindi, CSTT does not publish books in regional languages on its own. However to facilitate change-over of medium to regional languages, CSTT provides grants to Text Book Boards and University Cells of various states directly or through the respective State Government or directly to publish books in the respective regional languages and monitors such activities.  The books, besides being of high academic standards must contain standard terminology of the regional language. In this case also the scheme operates as per the guidelines of the Grant-in-aid Scheme (05-01-31) of CSTT and the   revised scheme of book production in Hindi and regional languages vide Ministry of Education's Resolution No. F.7-2/79-D.III (L) dated 12.4.1979 under the major head 3601and sub-head 05.01.31.  Grants are released to University Cells or such agencies situated in different states of the country as per the guidelines of the University Book Production Schemes. In this case the overall guidelines specified in the Resolution of Ministry of Education are followed and the procedure is similar to the publication of university level books in Hindi.

Details of the scheme: The Hindi Granth Academies, Text Book Boards and University Cells may produce approved literature in Hindi or other languages of the Schedule 8 of the constitution including books, reference books, monographs, research journals, readings, digests, dictionaries and encyclopaedias etc relevant to the courses of studies meant for university education including polytechnic level and plus two stage.
