Hindi is Most Preferred Language Used By 94% of Internet Users

Survey agency Statista had said in its report in the year 2018 that English dominates the Internet world. The English language has 10 million websites and 53 percent of people worldwide use English on the Internet. Chinese presence in the world is only 16% on the Internet, while the number of Chinese speakers is 1.3 billion, but Statista claims are now being proved wrong.

One thing you also know is that no language in the world can take the place of mother tongue and the same situation is with Hindi also. If you are also Hindi speaking, then let me tell you that your Hindi is moving very fast on the Internet. You can guess the popularity of Hindi on the Internet with the same fact that the number of people studying Hindi on the Internet is increasing by 94 percent every year.

If we consider the survey report of Google-KPMG Research, Census India and IRS, then in the year 2021, Internet users in Hindi will be more than Internet users in English. According to an estimate, 20.1 million people will start using Hindi. According to Google, content readers in Hindi are increasing by 94% every year, compared to 17% in English.

Amazon India has recently launched its app in Hindi. Platforms like OLX, Quikr are already available in Hindi. Snapdeal has also arrived in Hindi. By 2021, 8.1 crore people will start using Hindi for digital payment. Whereas in 2016 the number was 2.2 crores.

Recently, the Secretary of the Department of Official Language has said that only 10 to 20 percent of the letters received from the ministers and departments are in Hindi. However, most ministers claim that 50 to 60 percent of their correspondence is in Hindi. Explain that in 2001, the number of Hindi speakers in the country was 43.63 per cent i.e. around 42 crore, while in 2011 this number increased to 52 crore.
