Exams conducted by KPSC to have question papers in Malayalam

All recruitment examinations, being conducted by the Kerala's Public Service Commission (PSC), will soon have question papers in native language Malayalam along with English.

The apex recruitment agency accepted the government's suggestion in this regard "in principle", Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said after he held discussions with PSC Chairman, M.K Sakeer, at his office.

The government would also consider bringing out the PSC question papers in Kannada and Tamil, the minority languages in the state, in future, he added.

"The government has suggested to make available in Malayalam the question papers of all recruitment examinations conducted by the PSC, including Kerala Administrative Service (KAS). They have accepted the suggestion in principal and will take necessary action," Vijayan told reporters at the Secretariat.

The agency pointed out some practical difficulties in bringing out Malayalam question papers in technical subjects, he said.
