The Rajasthan Urdu Academy was established by the Government of Rajasthan, for promotion of Urdu language in February 1979. The Academy was established for the development and enrichment of Urdu Language and Literature.
The RUA works for the benefit of the Urdu knowing public through its schemes such as giving scholarships to students form class VI to the Ph.D. level; to reprint the classical books of merit in Urdu; to give financial aid to the old and the needy Urdu poets, writers, journalists and calligraphers; to hold seminars and symposia on the current topics concerning promotion of Urdu language and its literature.
Urdu lovers have always shown keen interest in the activities of the RUA but it has been a problem for the RUA to keep in touch with them on a regular basis. It has also been difficult to involve the Urdu lovers community in formulating new schemes for development of the language. It is hoped that this web site of the Rajasthan Urdu Academy (RUA) shall facilitate such an interaction and involvement of Urdu lovers in the functioning of the Academy.
No language can be developed unless the language is capable enough to provide the means of livelihood to its learners. An effort that empowers Urdu in this direction is the need of the time. RUA has made some efforts in this direction as would be evident form the schemes and programmes given on this web site and they would be able to enrich these development efforts through their suggestions through this web site or otherwise.
Besides, the RUA organizes Annual Mushaira.
