Bombay High Court rejects plea challenging mandatory Marathi on signboards of shops

The Bombay High Court on 23-02-22 rejected a petition challenging a Maharashtra government decision mandating all shops and establishments within the State to display their signboards in Marathi (written in Devanagari script). 
A Bench of Justices Gautam Patel and Madhav Jamdar emphasised in its ruling that using other languages on display boards was not prohibited and that the rule merely required the name to also be shown in Marathi.
The Bench questioned the motive behind filing of the petition in 2022 when the amendment to the Rules was carried out in 2018.
