The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to roll out free virtual training sessions to promote the 'Language of God' among citizens and students alike.

"For this you have to give a missed call at a designated mobile phone number which will be followed by filling up the form and completing required formalities. The scheme will start by the end of this month," the official added.
