Dear Mr. K. K. Misra, SCIS of GOK,

It is really sorry affairs of KIC. KIC doing business only in ENGLISH.

You are the FIRST SCIC to be appointed after RTI Act 2005 came into effective under cloud by GOK.

BUT you are not doing what needs to be done.

KIC – Karnataka State RTI website


Why KIC website is only in ENGLISH ?

Why KIC is giving decisions in ENGLISH ?

I hope you know the official language of Karnataka State is KANNADA.

You happened to be former CS of GOK, you must know that the official Language of Karnataka State in KANNADA.

If you can’t do this much in your capcity, what can CITIZENS of GOK can expect out of you ?

I have written several emails to you and also met you personally. You made me to meet with Dept of Law regarding this issue.

Why you are taking this much time to get this done ?

I hope you reply for this email.

    Not only in KIC even in other place paticularly in High Court of Karnataka the administrative language should be Kannada.

    Any information sought in Kannada is to be invariably provided in Kannada. Only when people start applying and seeking information in Kannada then automotically system gets changed. The fault lies with people. We feel using english will be easier than using Kannada. However today I got installed both versions of Kannada software viz., Baraha and Nudi to my computer with the help of Bhujanga. I will make sincere attempt to use Kannada while filing complaints and appeals before the Commission. Then automatically they will be compelled to issue orders in Kannada.

    YES. It is TRUE.

    Why other RTI Activists in Karnataka State are not raising the issue of KANNADA with SCIC and SIC of KIC ?

    Your move helps in making RTI applications in KANNADA. At least this will find JOBS for KANNADA MEDIUM Students. Think about this ?
