  1. hey guys just checked…. http://www.slideshare.net/guest1d7cce/ill-effects
    I am a staunch believer in development and the power sector is an important factor for industrial development and growth but we need a sustainable model and thermal power plants are bad they may yield immediate results to the power crisis and profits & ROI for investors but the people who are in the neighborhood would suffer and please note, the proposed site for the thermal plant is near Ghataprabha river which is provides drinking water to people of hukkeri, gokak… this would pollute the river and hidkal dam.

    There is a proposed micro Hydel projects on they left bank of Hidkal dam..I wouldnt oppose that cause its run of the river and minimal impact on the environment.
    1100MW merchant power plant can supply power to any part of india through the open access system but who would suffer and how it can impact our city, district and the environment is of a big concern

  2. It is a good news that so much investment is planned for belgaum. However I feel that Belgaum has far more potential than this. The talent from belgaum is working outside for lack of opportunuties here. Good opprtunities in Begaum will help them take belgaum to greater heights.

    • yes dear,

      i don't think this is enough for belgaum,
      coz belgaum deserve more,

      and i am happy that we did`t get any steel & cement projects which damages buty of belgaum

  3. Very nice … well now the Karnataka Govt. is concentrating on power crisis will directly boost the economy in the whole district.
