Due to the technical reasons Kannada language can not be made as an administrative language in High Court, said Chief Justice Vikramjit Sen on Monday.
He said it during the hearing of the petition seeking directions to make Kannada as administrative language in all the court. Justice Sen observed that Kannada can be used along with English in district and session courts.
During the hearing of petition filed by R K G M M Mahaswami, Justice Sen said that if Kannada was made the administrative language in High Court then it would violate Section 348 of Constitution.A petition was filed before the Delhi High Court to make Hindi the administrative language but it was rejected as generally English is used everywhere and advocates can argue their cases anywhere in the country. “If Kannada is made the administrative language then it may make the hearings in the court difficult,” observed Sen. Chief Justice N K Jain committee recommended to use Kannada as administrative language along with English in district and session courts. The state had issued notification in this regard. ‘The court can not make Kannada as the administrative language,” Sen remarked.
