Wednesday August 21, 2013 11:50 PM, IANS

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Wednesday said the government was doing all it could to promote Urdu in the capital.

The chief minister described the language as "a symbol of our composite culture", according to an official statement.

"Urdu educators would get increased honorarium of Rs.2,000 per month instead of Rs.1,500 and a topper would get hiked award of Rs.1,000 instead of Rs.500," the statement said here.

She also praised the work of Delhi's Urdu Academy.
