Bengaluru, Sept 29: A few days after VTU VC Prof Karisiddappa apprised the higher education minister that four colleges affiliated with the varsity had proposed to teach undergraduate engineering (BE) courses in Kannada, the department concerned approved the proposal.

While BE civil engineering will be taught in Kannada at Bheemanna Khandre Institute of Technology (Bhalki, Bidar) and BLDAE VP Dr P G Halakatti College of Engineering (Vijayapura), undergraduate mechanical engineering courses will be taught in the vernacular language at SJC Institute of Technology (Chikkaballapura) and Maharaja Institute of Technology, Mysuru.

Minister Ashwathnarayan confirmed the same during his interaction with reporters on Wednesday.

Offering higher education in regional languages has been recommended by the National Education Policy. All India Council of Technical Education permitted engineering colleges to offer undergraduate engineering courses in 11 regional languages — Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam, Bengali, Assamese, Punjabi and Oriya. 

The prime minister recently inaugurated 14 colleges in eight states which offer engineering courses in regional language. “Curriculum translation has begun. Since the first year is common for all branches, Kannada curriculum will be ready for academic year 2022. The university will also train teachers,” said VTU vice-chancellor Karisiddappa.

Bengaluru, July 31: Assembly elections in the state are likely to be held in December, JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy claimed.

“Situation at present indicates that Assembly polls will be held in December. The party has already begun preparations in 134 Assembly constituencies, where we have strong base,” he told reporters in Bidar.

Kumaraswamy stated that JD(S) legislature party deputy leader Bandeppa Kashempur would finalise candidates for Assembly segments in Bidar. The selection process would be over in another 10 days.

He appealed to people to support JD(S) party so that its government lasted a full five-year term. “There were enough resources for wealth creation in the State and there was no need to go to the Centre for it. Though waiving the loans of the farmers was not a permanent solution, he would try to find a permanent solution to the loan burden of the farmers,” Kumaraswamy said.
