Telugu declared official language

M. Malleswara Rao

HYDERABAD: It was in 1966 that the Andhra Pradesh Assembly had adopted the Andhra Pradesh Official Language Act making Telugu the State's official language.

However, the implementation since then has been found wanting, because the Government did not follow up the legislation with the necessary notification addressed to different departments.

The lacuna was detected recently when the present Chairman of the Official Language Commission A. B. K. Prasad scanned all the files relating the Act.

He had at once initiated the file climaxing in the Governor issuing the notification on September 13 through an extraordinary gazette ordering that "all orders, rules, regulations and bylaws issued by the Government shall be in Telugu."

Backing it, the General Administration Department issued an order (GO Ms No 420).
