The Belagavi City Bus Stand redevelopment which has been planned under the Smart city project is in doldrums as the Cantonment board Belagavi has raised issues that it’s land has been used without their permission.

All work has come to stand still and only the bus shelters and the divisional office have been demolished, the work of which had commenced on January 29, 2019.

The Cantonment claims that some land belonging to the Cantonment board is been used for the project without their permission.

city-bus-standFor the past 50 odd days, no work is going on there as the Cantonment has asked the Smart city officials to clear the dispute of the land.

The City Bus stand was planned in 2.07 acres out of which 32 gunthas land belongs to the Cantonment and no prior permission was taken from them.

The Cantonment board took objection to the same and stopped all the work as they say, BSCL has encroached on 32 gunthas of its land.

Now that this project is stuck up in a land dispute only the Lord can tell when it would commence.

Under the Smart city limited, the bus stand will get a new facade, waiting rooms, Basement parking for cars and also have a skywalk.

  4. In Ramtirthnagar under smart city Road work is going on opp shivalaya temple to kanabargi Road. The work is going on from the last 2months.While putting slab on gutter the workers have stopped the gutter water.This is giving very bad smell and mosquitos .We have told the workers to open the gutter and make way for the water to flow,but it is not done and we are facing problem.So we request the smart city supervisors to visit the spot and do the needful.

  5. Ha Ha Ha Strange things in Smart City Project. Now I doubt tomorrow the Defence Ministry will claim the “Central Bus Stand Area”.
    Its like someone shouting ‘RUN’ & Smart City Officials are just Running Blindly (Don’t know any Target,how to Run,Where to Run & in what mode to Run)…
