Shop owners across Bengaluru need to exercise extra precaution. Shops which do not have a Kannada name boards are becoming targets for the Kannada Rakshana Vedike (KRV). 

A campaign has been initiated by the KRV. The campaign has been titled “Kannada Ulisi Abhiyana (Protect Kannada Campaign)”. Nameboards that have discarded the use of Kannada are being torn apart by the activists of KRV. 

Nameboards across highways, skywalks and advertisement boards are coming under the scrutiny of the KRV activists. They are ensuring the clearance of name boards that have neglected the use of Kannada on the streets of Bengaluru. 

Recently, the KRV conducted a drive across the region of Chickpet wherein the shops had nameboards that did not follow the established norm which stipulates that the ratio of the size of the Kannada name board and English name board must be 3:2. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has directed the shops to adopt the new rules by the end of February or risk having their licences cancelled. This was after the shop owners had expressed that although they are willing to comply with the norms, an immediate transition would not be practical. Some questions were raised on the tone of the activists while propagating their cause.
