In this age of internet the government websites which are supposed to have authentic information and visitors always rely on them are always not correct and trust worthy.
Have a look at the official District website http://belgaum.nic.in/ .
The website claims to be the official website of the district and yet gives outdated information.
Have a look at the Tourism page and then Accessibility: where under Airways it says, and we quote
The Belgaum-Mumbai flights were started on January 10, 2011 by Kingfisher and from then are flying daily.
But the official website says airport is not operational.
The site is used as a ready reckoner by many a tech savy residents all over the world and hence such a mismanagement is certainly shocking.
Or is it that they want to promote Hubli here as well.
