Full Story: 

Tushar Giri Nath, leading the BBMP, declared the deadline for the installation of Kannada language nameplates in commercial stores, underlining that this initiative aims to reinforce the usage of Kannada across the city. He stated that a comprehensive survey will be conducted zone-wise along the 1400 km of arterial and sub-arterial roads in Bengaluru. Shops found lacking 60% Kannada language on their nameplates will receive notices, compelling them to implement the language requirement by February 28. Shop owners are required to submit compliance reports to their respective zone commissioners within the stipulated timeframe.

The chief commissioner highlighted the seriousness of the directive, asserting that strict action awaits those who fail to adhere. Legal consequences, including suspension and license cancellation, will be imposed on shops not displaying Kannada prominently on their nameplates. This stern approach underscores the BBMP’s commitment to fostering Kannada language usage and ensuring compliance with government directives.

Furthermore, Tushar Giri Nath emphasized the need for immediate consultation with upcoming malls in the city. He urged these large commercial establishments to adopt Kannada language in the nameplates of all shops within 15-20 days. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action as per the law. This proactive stance aims to extend the language initiative to major retail hubs, aligning them with the broader mission of preserving and promoting Kannada in public spaces.
