Sack bank staff who don't learn Kannada in 6 months: KDA

08 Août 2017

The Kannada Development Authority (KDA) on Monday asked the banks in Karnataka to direct their employees to learn Kannada in six months and to sack them if they fail to do so.

"I have sensed that there has been a lack of will in implementing the local language in several banks". "Also the annual reports of the banks must come in three languages keeping Kannada as the main language and they must be circulated among customers", it said. "I will visit banks soon and take stock of the situation", the KDA chairman said in the letter. He said that not paying due respect to the regional language may arise conflicts in the future.

Many IT companies in the city received an email from the authority stating that henceforth only Kannada language should be used for software coding.

KDA however denied having any role to play in all this and said that the latest act was handiwork of some anti-Kannada elements.

The free-trial allows adventurers to experience the different playable races, classes, and jobs with no restrictions on playtime. Furthermore, the Moonfire Faire event is now live with patch 4.06 which offers even more quests and enemies for players to face.

However, a senior advocate said that service conditions can not be altered midcareer to the detriment of employees. "If those who have been already appointed fail to learn Kannada in six months, they should be relieved of their services in accordance with the recruitment rules", he said. Earlier, Hindi signs were blackened out in the Bengaluru Metro. The decision came after there were massive protests regarding the use of Hindi.

The protests also saw the participation of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, which was seen blackening the Hindi signboards at various stations.
