'Kannada signboards mandatory'

Deputy commissioner Dr N V Prasad expressed displeasure over neglecting Kannada language. The name boards in front of the shops do not use Kannada language.

He said all shops, hotels, organisations, homestays, tourist spots should mandatorily use Kannada in their nameboards.

As per Section 24 A of Karnataka Shops Commercial Establishments Act, 2008, Kannada should be the norm on name boards, in administration and on signboard. Kannada letters should be written in big fonts. Those violating this order will be punished, he said.

Accordingly, gram panchayats, town panchayat and CMC should ensure that Kannada is used in the signboard or nameplate while issuing license for commercial establishments.
