Hindi included as third official court language in Abu Dhabi

Hindi included as third official court language in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi (Capital of UAE) has decided to include Hindi as the third official language used in its courts, alongside Arabic and English, as part of a move designed to improve access to justice. 

The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has extended the adoption of interactive forms of statement of claims filed before courts by including Hindi. 

Why Hindi was included?

An estimated 3.3 million Indian expat live in UAE and mostly are employed in blue collar jobs.

The move will help the Hindi speakers to learn about litigation procedures, their rights and duties without a language barrier.
