Kerala: The Kerala government has directed all schools in the state to make Malayalam a compulsory subject. It, however, clarified that students from other states studying in Kerala schools are exempt.

An ordinance issued by the government applies to schools affiliated to the state, CBSE and ICSE boards.

The ordinance will come into effect from the next academic session and schools that do not comply will lose their NOC.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan claimed that in some schools in the state, speaking Malayalam is against the rules. He said that such rules cannot be allowed and ordered a fine of Rs 5,000 against the principal of one such school.

Back in 2011, Malayalam was a made a compulsory first language in all schools in the state. In 2013, the Oommen Chandy government had also decided to make proficiency in Malayalam language a must for getting jobs in government services in the state.
