[National Education Policy] Kannada need not be made a compulsory subject: Central government to Karnataka High Court

The Division Bench of Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi and Justice SR Krishna Kumar noted that in light of the submission of the Centre, the operation of the government orders dated August 7, 2021 and September 15, 2021 which sought to make Kannada compulsory for students at the graduate level, would be stayed until the next hearing.

The Bench observed,

“We are only concerned with whether in view of the National Education Policy whether regional language can be made compulsory or not, that is the only legal issue before us. We are not concerned with the development of Kannada language.”
