Two acres of land in the vicinity of the Belagavi Deputy Commissioner’s office will be acquired for the construction of the 6 storied new building which will house all the major Govt offices under one roof. Consequently, 30 government buildings in the area will be demolished. These buildings have recently undergone assessment by the Public Works Department.

The planned collectorate building will consist of six floors, and the roads in the area will be expanded to facilitate development. Currently, a survey of various government offices in the Collectorate area has been completed.

The location currently accommodates several offices, including the Sub-Registrar Office, Taluka Panchayat, Backward Classes Welfare Account, Horticulture Account, Library, CADA, City Survey, Land Survey Account, Urban Development Account, Meteorological Account, Statistical Department, Election Department, Charitable Account, Food and Civil Supplies, and Divyang Kalyan Kendra.


All the necessary information regarding these offices has been obtained from the Public Works Department, and the existing offices have been measured. Consequently, the officials from the Public Works Department have informed that 30 buildings in this area will be demolished. All relevant reports have been forwarded to senior officers, and the buildings have been surveyed and photographed. Additionally, an aerial survey has recently been conducted, as confirmed by the authorities.

A comprehensive survey has been conducted on the premises of the Belagavi Deputy Commissioner’s office in preparation for the construction of a six-storey building. Surrounding the building on all four sides will be two-lane roads, with an inviting park at the entrance. The proposed building plan has received approval, and the tender process will commence shortly. Officials from the PWD department have estimated that funds ranging from 100 to 150 crores will be required for this project.

Additionally, the Public Works Department has surveyed the new Collectorate building. The existing structure, along with nearby buildings such as the British sub-registry office, will be demolished to make way for the new construction. The planned Collectorate building will span 145 meters in length and 71 meters in width, featuring six storeys, including a two-storey basement and four-storey offices.

The proposed project involves utilizing a portion of the expansive nine-acre Deputy Commissioner’s premises to build the new office, covering an impressive two acres. This strategic allocation will ensure ample space for essential amenities such as parking, a beautifully landscaped garden, and other necessary infrastructure.
