Following the directive of the Andhra Pradesh Official Language Commission, officials in the district have started appending their signatures on files in Telugu. Officials of the Revenue, Panchayat Raj, and other departments also plan to do paper work in Telugu.
In-charge Collector Pola Bhaskar, Additional Joint Collector R.S. Rajakumar, District Revenue Officer Nur Bhasha Khasim, District Panchayat Officer T. Venkateswara Rao, and other officials are adhering to the directive of the commission. The officials believe that it will certainly catch the attention of officials and staff in mandals.
“I am appending my signature on all files, except the ones relating to financial issues, only in Telugu. I have suggested to the MROs and others to follow the guidelines of the commission,” Mr. Bhasha Khasim said.
Mr. Venkateswara Rao said promotion of Telugu would ultimately benefit people. The administration is hopeful that drafting of content too would be in Telugu in the days to come.
