Now all the shops and commercial establishments in Odisha will display signboards in Odia, otherwise be fined.The Odisha govt. is going to make mandatory for all shops and commercial establishments in Odisha to display signboards in Odia.The State Cabinet today approved an amendment that the shops and commercial establishments can write name on the signboards in any language but the name should be prominent in Odia. If the names are not displayed in Odia, it will be an offense and the violator will be fined. The lawbreakers will be fined between Rs. 1000 to Rs. 5000 in the 1st instance of violation in court of the judicial magistrate and Rs. 2000 to Rs. 25,000 when the offense is repeated.
