  1. Really it is a good achievement for Belgaum,

    Belgaum is wel known for its Military and commando training centre in India and abroad. It should also have an R & D organisation in special war equipments and accessories for self-defence of State as well as nation too.

    Government should make use of Belgaum Industrilization facilities which are really available for use at the door steps…………..

    Finally, Belgaum is a good city and must be developed in all sectors and requirements……..

  2. Its really great to know about that ! Belgaum is emerging as a technical and scientific research hub !! Cheers to the team !!!

  3. Despite of all this achievements Belgaum is not on agenda of state govt for developing Aerospace complex here , instead promoting Bangalore. Private players such as Quest had though have made some difference but can they stand govt competition?
