Dept to provide fillip to Kannada study


Director Manu P Baligar said his department was working with Mysore University and Karnatak University on programmes to ensure more use of Kannada.

“A Kannada Bhavan in Bellary will be established at a cost of Rs 5 crore, the land for which has already been identified,” he said. The department is also exploring the possibility of tying up with foreign universities to promote study of Kannada. Former VC of Karnataka State Open University Dr B A Vivek Rai, now a visiting faculty at the University of Wurzburg in Germany has been approached in this regard, added Baligar.
A committee has also been set up for the development of Kannada software, which can be accessed throughout the world. The committee comprises former VC of Kuvempu University Dr Chidananda Gowda, as its Chairman and educationists and experts in the field of information technology. The government has sanctioned Rs 2 crore for the development of software, said Baligar.
