Mysore, Mar. 3 (SH)- As per the State Government's declaration of 2009 as 'Kannada Implementation Year,' the public, govt. employees and voluntary organisations have been asked to use Kannada at all levels.

Mysore City Corporation has decided to implement the Kannada language policy effectively, as an amendment has been made to the Karnataka Municipalities Act 1963.

All shops, hotels, owners of enterprises, petrol bunks, exhibition stalls, offices and name-boards displayed inside and outside their premises and advertisement hoardings should be written in proper Kannada.

Kannada legend should be given highest priority and legends in other languages may be made subservient to Kannada. Also, no room should be given to commit grammatical errors in Kannada boards. The Government Order relating to the use of Kannada compulsorily should be treated as official notice under the Karnataka Shops and Establishments (Amendment) Act 2008. Those who violate the order will be fined Rs.10,000, said the MCC Commissioner in a notification.

Mysore, Mar. 3 (KCU)- The Mysore City Corporation (MCC) Health Officer has stated in a press release that with effect from Feb. 2010 all commercial establishments in city seeking renewal of/ or fresh trade licences should submit a photo of the shop's signboard in Kannada along with the necessary application form.
