The Southern Railways had issued a circular directing the Divisional Control Offices and Station Masters to use only Hindi or English languages as the medium for communication. The Railway authorities justified the move by saying that it was being implemented in order to avoid miscommunication among officials. However, as expected, the move was opposed and it was said that employees of the Railways in the state must learn the language of the state instead of expecting the local employees to change their tongue. Language imposition has been a sensitive issue and as much as the intention was to make processes more efficient it was not well received and was perceived as a threat to local culture. The Southern Railways has thereby scrapped the notice and issued a new one asking for officials to communicate without ambiguity.
