Karnataka Govt Approves Ordinance Mandating 60% Kannada Language On Signboards

Karnataka: The Karnataka Cabinet on Friday decided to promulgate an ordinance directing the commercial establishments and business shops in the state to mandatorily use 60 per cent Kannada language in signboards.

The Kannada Language Comprehensive Development (Amendment) ordinance was okayed by the cabinet in their recent meeting.

“People have to follow rules and if someone ignores them, then they will face the consequences. This I am making clear to everyone. I appeal to all the organizations and the activists not to take the law into their own hands,” CM Siddaramaiah told reporters.

Moreover, it was also told that an amendment would be introduced to section 17(6) of the Kannada Language Comprehensive Development Act (KLCDA) - 2022 as well, which was promulgated by the previous BJP government on March 10, 2023, ahead of the assembly elections.

The decision comes after the members of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) sent shockwaves across the city, vandalising name boards in English last week.

Notably, visuals of the group members blackening name plates and running riot in the city went viral. They specifically also targeted the newly opened Phoenix Mall of Asia, which has been directed to be shut down till January 15, for traffic-related reasons.
