CoWIN In Hindi, Regional Languages

So far, everyone needs to register on the CoWIN platform to book an appointment for the vaccine. And, English language makes it hard for many people to understand and follow instructions on the portal. Now, Indians will be able to access the CoWIN portal in Hindi as well as 14 other regional languages.

The announcement comes from union health secretary Rajesh Bhushan where the decision to rollout CoWIN in Hindi and other languages was made at a high-level meeting. The official announcement was also made by union health minister Harsh Vardhan, who chaired the meeting regarding the COVID-19 situation and the vaccine drive in India.

"This was in the pipeline for some time keeping in mind the convenience of people who are not comfortable with the English language. The portal will be tweaked accordingly," a government official familiar with the developments said to the Hindustan Times.
