  1. Corporation has arranged Nirmalya Kund at Ramteerth (jakkin honda)
    and at Kapileshwar, and people too are using it. Very good.

    but along with this I have a suggestion, please consider,

    If people throw Nirmalya in this Kund along with plastic , it is of no use.
    again it will be a burden to transport this to dump yard
    for which you need additional manpower and trucks.
    Instead if a person is appointed here to get the nirmalya and plastic bags
    seperated here itself, person like me can use the plastic free nirmalya for
    composting and waste like plastic can be taken to the dump yard.

    Thanks

  2. A much required initiative to make Belgaum a smart city. Although its not the first time the planning is done. Hope the plans is executed with a much greater enthusiasm and the citizens of Belgaum are made aware of their roles in making it successful. Moreover the progress of the plan must be communicated publicly to maintain transperancy and keep the citizens updated.
