Govt committed to implement Malayalam as official language: Kerala CM
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala government is
committed to implement Malayalam as the official language in
all departments and courts in the state, Chief Minister V S
Achuthanandan said here on Wednesday.
Reacting to a statement in the assembly on the necessity
to accelerate the implementation process, Achuthanandan said
the government was exploring the possibility of setting up a
University for Malayalam.
He said the Official Language Act on the issue was passed
way back in 1969. `Even after 40 years, we are not able to
achieve the goal`, he said.
More than 50 per cent files in the secretariat have been
converted to Malayalam. Steps are being taken to convert
others too, he said.
Steps are being taken to convert the court parlance into
Malayalam as per the report of Justice Narendran Commission,
the CM said.
To promote the language among non-resident Keralities,
the government had launched `Malayalam Mission` by setting up
Malayalam education centres outside the state, he said adding
the state-owned C-DIT has been asked to prepare computer
softwares in Malayalam.
Achuthanandan said the Centre should take initiatives in
making the language compulsory in Kerala schools where CBSE
syllabus was followed.
