    Belgaum is a bilingual district. Water bills are issued in Marathi and electricity bills in Kannada. Marathi is the official language of the city corporation and some surrounding taluks. In such case Bangalore based govt. officials will have to learn Marathi in order to deal with the local population. Instead of shifting entire offices, it is better to open branch secretariats by employing local staff, just as we have some central govt. offices in different states.
