The Belgaum Cantonment had planned to rename the Khanapur road from Sanchayni Circle to Suryakant Park (Gogte circle) as Bandu Patil (He was a part of the gold medal winning Indian hockey team in the 1960’s) road, but it was later found that, the same road was named after Maj.Cariappa in the military records.
Hence it is now decided to rename the Sanchayani Circle as Bandu Patil Circle and circle will be renovated with an island in the middle.
This circle was named as Sanchayani Circle about 10 years ago when Sanchayani group was building a complex at the circle and also had sought permission then from the Cantonment board to maintain the circle. But the Complex was ready but never occupied due to court orders and till date it is lying un used due to litigation.
The Sanchayani group had built an island in the middle but due to non maintenance of the island was removed.
