The 110 mtrs high flag post will have a 9600 sq feet National flag measuring 80 /120 feet . The estimated cost of the project is 1.57 crores and another 2.5 crores will be spent for Landscaping.

eager to have a look at the completed project. good development for belgaum
Not against the Flag or the Flag post. But the same amount could have been used for much better and clean roads.
When its about our country its always a proud moment but also educate the people on the expense incurred.
I read in an article that flag wont be hoisted on daily basis at the border as the flag wont last for long because of high-velocity wind that flows at high altitude. And frequent replacement of the flag requires huge amount (in lakhs).
Has the government did thorough ground work on this and thought about it? who will bear the expense? (Surely not the common man)
Bottom line is it should not be a dead investment as crores of rupees shall be spent on its installation.
Also the installation of flag post should not harm the birds residing in the lake premises.
Hope everything is taken care.
The importance of the size doesn’t make a difference rather than achieving our goals to improving our infrastructure. I’m a proud Belgaumite and Indian living in Australia. Though I’ve lived most of my life in Pune, Maharashtra, I would like to see my hometown surpass other Cities in many areas of development. If only, we all can work towards it. Hat’s off to all the hard working Belgaumites.
Wow it’s our belagavi
WOW!!! its simply amazing work and great treasure will be added to our Historic Belgaum Amcha Belgav. Waiting eagerly to have the Awesome View.
IT IS GREAT JOB ,WHATEVER IT MAY BE .DON’T CARE . I SAY THANKS A LOT TO MR.FIROJ SAIT .I AM REALLY HAPPY TODAY AFTER SEEING IT .
