Efforts of Revival

Dogri was included on the signboards at Jammu Tawi railway station. This triggered enthusiasm among particularly the youngsters who were in large numbers sharing it on the social media.

Although the language has been given recognition at the central level, but there were allegations of the Jammu and Kashmir government giving it "step-motherly" treatment. Adequate steps were not being taken to teach the language at the school and college levels.[6]
