The Hon'ble Karnataka High Court stayed the government order making Kannada compulsory as a subject in higher education from the academic year 2021-2022 as part of implementing the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. A division bench of Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi and Justice SR Krishna Kumar passed the interim order, staying the operation of two orders by the state government.

The Hon'ble Karnataka High Court mentioned that according to the  Union government that there is no mention of any compulsory language under NEP 2020. So, the decision was made according to the NEP 2020 policy of the Union government.

An implementing application has been filed by the Kannada Development Authority and the court has asked it to file objections if any. Orally, the court observed that it is not against any language and that it is only looking at whether any regional language can be made compulsory under NEP.   

The Government of Karnataka contended that making Kannada compulsory was a policy decision and was in sync with the recommendations of the VK Gokak Committee report. The government further argued that they cannot have any objections with regard to studying the language while pursuing their higher studies.
