App for learning Kannada

The Kannada Development Authority (KDA) will soon come out with a mobile application for learning Kannada. 

KDA chairman L Hanumanthaiah said the application was in an advanced stage of development and would be launched soon. The application will have interactive sessions for learning practical Kannada for day-to-day communication and would be helpful especially for those from outside Karnataka.

He said a grant of Rs two crore from the Centre could not be utilised following an appeal in the Madras High Court challenging the conferring of classical language status on Kannada. The Advocate General has agreed to take up the State’s plea and the court is likely to take a final call on the case soon, he said.

Hanumanthaiah said he would write to the Centre to restore recruitment of employees for the banking sector through the Regional Recruitment Board to ensure priority for local candidates.
