Good question. Most people in Pakistan cannot read Hindi. Nepal allows passport-free travel for Indian citizens. So the answer is a big zero.

Hindians are putting Hindi everywhere like passport, state-run metros (Bengaluru Metro director told reporters that he was following the order from Indiuan giov). At the same time state language is removed everywhere. Raiol tickets were issued in state language from British days. Now it is removed.

Also passport offices were instructed to use as much Hindi as possible in day to day operations. That means they will talk to non-Hindi applicants in non-Hindi cities in Hindi

considering the huge NI population in Bangalore it is  reasonable to use three languages in the Metro stations.

---
Bengaluru’s much-awaited Metro rail project, the first phase of which was inaugurated on Saturday by President Pranab Mukherjee, has already run into trouble.

Signboards at stations that use three languages: Kannada, English and Hindi, have drawn criticism, with this being viewed as another instance of the imposition of Hindi.

Telugu, Urdu, Tamil are the most spoken languages in Bengaluru after native Kannada. If there is a 3rd language, it should be Telugu not Hindi.

Urdu and Hindi are essentially the same language. In particular, colloquial hindi and colloquial urdu are the same language.

If we combine the NI population in Bangalore with the native kannadiga and non-kannadiga muslim population in the city and add to this number people from North-East India and people from Nepal one will obtain the most populous linguistic community in Bangalore (people whose first language or second language is hindi-urdu).

Nepalis and North-East Indians are comfortable with Hindi. Many of them work as waiters, security guards, construction workers, etc. in Bangalore. It is cruel and heartless to make Bangalore unwelcome for these hard working people by not having signs in Hindi in the Metro.

It is foolish to have signs in Telugu because written Telugu and written Kannadiga are practially the same language and there are already signs in Kannadiga in the B'lore metro.

As per the 2001 census (not sure if similar data is available in the 2011 census), Tamilians are the the second largest linguistic group in Bengaluru. Tamilians have also had a historically long presence in Bengaluru. If anything the three languages should be Kannada, English, and Tamil. And in Chennai if they ever go for a three language system, Tamil, English, and Telugu.

If we combine the population of Kiev with population of South Korea, add to it the number of stores in Southwest Berkley and divude it by the 94th prime number and divide it by 2, it will equal the number of seconds Rashmun spends on this site.
