Officials asked to use Kannada in admn


He gave this instruction while inaugurating a workshop on “Kannada as the language of administration” organised by Kannada and Culture Department for the officials and personnel of various departments.

Though the government has published dictionary and office booklet to make some difficult words easier, the officials are not making use of them, he said. “A language cannot be developed without using it. It is necessary to conduct administration in the language of the people.
