The Karnataka government has granted a two-week extension for the implementation of Kannada signage in Bengaluru. Originally scheduled to conclude on February 29, the deadline for ensuring 60 percent Kannada usage in signage will now be extended to allow commercial establishments more time for compliance.

Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar announced the extension on social media, emphasizing the importance of upholding the state’s mother tongue. “Considering the time required for changing signage, the Karnataka Govt has decided to extend the deadline given to commercial establishments by 2 more weeks so that the 60% signage in Kannada rule can be followed,” he stated.

Shivakumar further highlighted the significance of respecting Kannada and expressed expectations for full compliance with the law within the extended timeframe. “It is important that we uphold our mother tongue in utmost respect, therefore we expect this law will be duly followed, and we shall see compliance to it by the end of the 2-week extended period,” he concluded.

The extension aims to facilitate a smoother transition for businesses to adhere to the Kannada signage requirement, ensuring the promotion and preservation of the state’s linguistic heritage in public spaces across Bengaluru.
