Adoption of Kannada nameplate: Two weeks extension: DCM DK Shivakumar

Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar said that considering the need for more time to install 60% Kannada nameplates in all shop fronts and commercial outlets in Bangalore, the already given deadline has been extended by two weeks.

He has posted about this on X site, “Kannada is sovereign in Kannada land, so it is very important to uphold the language of our heart. I expect that after two weeks everyone will follow the law.”

The BBMP had decided to suspend the ‘business license’ of commercial outlets that do not use 60% Kannada on their nameplates and lock them from today.

A special state gazette notification suggested that it should be ensured that Kannada is displayed at the top of shop fronts. In the meeting chaired by the Chief Commissioner, as per the notification, all the commercial shops under the corporation’s jurisdiction were instructed to adopt 60% Kannada on their nameplates by February 28, and a notice was issued to 55,187 shops.

As of February 28, 52,134 commercial enterprises have complied with the notice. The remaining 3,044 commercial enterprises remained unchanged. Rajarajeshwari has the highest arrears in the urban zone, followed by the Yalahanka and Bommanahalli zones
