Governor K Sankaranarayanan has asked to avoid the use of ‘His Excellency, Your Excellency and Mahamahim’ (in Marathi) while referring to him during functions.

The governor issued a circular on Monday in conformity with the decision taken by the President of India approving new protocol practices in October 2012.

A release from the Raj Bhavan said that the word ‘excellency’ would be used only for interaction with foreign dignitaries, as is a customary international practice.

However, a prefix ‘honourable’ can be used while referring to the governor. The traditional greeting of ‘Shri’ or ‘Smt’ should precede the name, the release said.
