Learn Kannada to settle down in Karnataka
Learning Kannada will be a mandate for all non-Kannadigas in the state. The outstation population has to learn the language in a year states KDA
For all those non- Kannadigas living in Bangalore and are planning to settle down in the city here’s some news for you. The Kannada Development Authority (KDA) has recommended the State Government to pass legislation and get the non-Kannadigas to learn the language in a year. The outstation population in Bangalore and the rest of the state will have to at least pass Std VII Kannada exam in less than a year and should be able to read and write the language.
The recommendation was submitted by KDA chief MLC ‘Mukhyamantri’ Chandru on Monday. Chandru claims that with the ever growing IT Companies and MNC’s in Karnataka, more and more people from different parts of the country are coming down to settle in the state. It is important for the non-Kannadigas to understand the culture, history and language of the land. If they can avail the other resources of the land, then learning the language in about year should not be a problem stated Chandru
The State Government will be at aid for the non-Kannadigas. Online Kannada learning centers will be made available to the tech population in the city and state.
For further development of the language KDA officials want the State Government to direct all telecom providers to start message alerts in Kannada and use Kannada software in mobile phones to promote the language.Chief Minister B.S Yeddyurappa claims that the implementations will be done on priority basis at the earliest.
