Bengaluru: The Tulu language script, designed by the Karnataka Tulu Sahitya Academy using historic documents, will soon be incorporated into the unicode character list, Kannada and Culture Minister Aravind Limbavali said on Tuesday.

"There were several discussions for about 10 years related to designing the Tulu script. Tulu language and script experts undertook the final work with unanimity.

The script that they put forth was accepted by the Academy. We have also now approved the addition of the script to the Unicode character list," Limbavali said.

Stating that the Karnataka government had asked the Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysuru, to review and approve the Tulu script, he said CIIL formed a committee of linguists who analysed the work and approved it.

The committee members also recommended addition of the script to the Unicode consortium. The Kannada and Culture Department, therefore, has written to the Tulu Academy on this, he was quoted as saying in a statement by his office.

The Academy has also been told to address the other technical aspects for the script to be added to the list.
