Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) had issued a circular which mandated that the name boards of shops/establishments have to be displayed in the Kannada language with 60% of the display board in Kannada language and remaining 40% of the board can be in other languages. Subsequently, RAI had submitted a representation to the State Government of Karnataka and filed a Writ Petition under article 226 of the Constitution of India in the Karnataka High Court challenging the BBMP circular as being illegal, void ab initio and ultra vire the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act 1976.

After a series of hearings, the BBMP has confirmed before the Karnataka High Court that no precipitate action will be taken in regard to the issued circulars. Click here to view the order copy.
