Belagavi City Corporation Commissioner, Ashok Dudgunti, addressed the general meeting of the municipal corporation, informing them that 138 illegal sweepers who were appointed to the health department have been reinstated in service and given two months’ salary, by the government’s order. However, concerns were raised by a corporator regarding the duration of payment for these employees. Commissioner Dudgunti clarified that the inquiry into the matter resulted in the payment of two month’s salary to the 138 employees, as per the government’s instructions. Furthermore, these individuals were retained in service by inviting new tenders, as mandated by the government.

To save costs on municipal waste handling and transportation, the corporation has initiated the production of fragrant incense sticks. Although this venture has not generated any revenue for the municipal corporation, it has proven to be beneficial in terms of cost savings. Environmental engineer Hanmanth K provided this information.

During the meeting, several proposals were put forth by the corporators. Shivaji Mandolkar suggested the revival of old wells in Shivajinagar, while Mangesh Pawar emphasized the need for the municipal corporation to raise awareness among the public regarding water conservation.


Additionally, it was agreed upon in the House that a no-objection letter should be issued to the L&T Company for the repair of faulty wells in Belagavi city. The topic of Sangolli Rayanna’s statue in Angol Lake was also discussed, with corporator Srishail Kamble raising the subject.
