Udupi, Jun 15: Roy Castelino, chairman, Karnataka Konkani Sahitya Academy, said that efforts were being made to start a postgraduate course in Konkani language in Mangalore University.

Castelino said that some Syndicate members of Mangalore University were putting in efforts to start the M.A. course. Though Konkani was introduced as optional third language in schools in Udupi and Dakshina Kannada districts in 2007, it had attracted few students then. This despite the fact that there were about 50,000 students with Konkani as their mother-tongue in the three coastal districts.

Konkani was being taught in either Devanagari or Kannada script in schools. In 2015-16, 69 students in nine schools appeared for the SSLC exam with Konkani as third language and wrote in Kannada script, while nine students of three schools wrote it in Devanagari script.

Konkani was also being taught in six degree colleges affiliated to Mangalore University. The academy was making efforts to introduce Konkani as a subject in PU course.

This effort had suffered a setback as the number of students opting for Konkani as third language in SSLC was less.
