IN­DIA

Spotlight - - WORLD MAP -

Just 12 per cent (around 125 mil­lion peo­ple) speak English as an ad­di­tional lan­guage — very few, given the his­tory of Bri­tish In­dia (1612–1947).

Hindi and English are the of­fi­cial lan­guages.

Na­tive speak­ers of English num­ber fewer than 250,000.

Hinglish, a mix of Hindi, English and Pun­jabi, among other lan­guages, is widely spo­ken.
