Telugu & Kannada get Classical status
The Union Culture Minister Ambika Soni said the decision to give classical language status to Telugu and Kannada has been taken on the recommendation of committee of linguistic experts.
The formal declaration would take place on the occasion of the Rajyotsava day in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh formation day on November 1.
However, the decision is subject to the outcome of a pending writ petition in Madras high court. Tamil has already been declared a classical language.
