New Delhi: As per the media reports the students of Indian Institute for Management (IIM) Bangalore are baffled that despite being a Kannada speaking state, why they are being asked to validate their names in Hindi to be printed on their graduation certificate.
This latest act of imposition of ‘Hindi’ upon non-Hindi speakers has not gone down well with many postgraduate students who are opposing such imposition.
“What if we apply in some foreign universities or look for jobs abroad? Will they understand this language?” said a student of IIM-B while interacring with the media on the condition of anonymity. As noted by the Times of India (ToI) in its report the students were asked to confirm their names in the Google Excel sheet before January 31.
In a reply to an email sent by an English daily to the IIM-Bangalore, the institute stated that it is actively undertaking discussions in this regard and no such rule has been imposed on the students.
“We are happy to have received various views and opinions, some of which are not in favour. IIM Bangalore assures all internal stakeholders, including the students, that there will be no imposition and any concern shall be promptly addressed internally. There are no protests and we shall internally reach out to anyone who has a concern,” reads the quote from the reported email reply by the institute.
