Bangalore Metro Namma Metro Bangalore infra

Pointing out that candidates are selected through examinations conducted by the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection, KDA president S G Siddaramaiah in letters to banks said the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) in its application itself makes it clear that preference in selection should be given to candidates who know the local language.

The protestors demanded that all employees should learn Kannada within six months or else leave their jobs.

In July, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had demanded that people from outside the state adapt to the Kannada culture.

These protests were based on an incident in Mandya where a bank employee could not communicate with a local in Kannada and demanded that the local farmer learn Hindi to speak to him. "We cannot ignore the fact that not paying due respect to the local language can lead to conflicts in future", he said, adding that all advertisements used in the banks should be printed in three languages, keeping Kannada as the main language. Banks should ensure the employee knows the language while recruiting employees in Kannada.

"Currently, they have forms and challans in Hindi and English". People should be able to fill the form in Kannada also ensuring the three language policy. If not, they will have to be relieved from duty. It's essential for Grameena banks to follow the rule became they cater to the rural population. "These banks lack the sense to take up initiatives. Daily supervision will be done to see if the banks are applying the rule correctly", he added.

I don't know Kannada. They should inform us soon enough. While hiring employees in Karnataka, banks must ensure that they know Kannada. "I should be able to pick up the basics with her help", Ranjit said.
