Bengaluru, Mar 15: If reports are to be believed then Kannada is going to replace all languages in all government forms in Karnataka.

According to reports, Kannada Development Authority (KDA) has asked the government to implement Kannada as the official language of administration. Hence government forms in the state may soon be entirely in Kannada. Currently government applications can be filled in Kannada, English or, in some cases, Hindi.
