The Saffron flag atop the old Belgaum city corporation (BCC) building came down for the last time never to be hoisted again.

 From today the BCC will function from the new premises near the SP office. Only the national flag will be hoisted there.

 So form today all the work from birth, death certificates to building permissions and property extract you will need to go to the new premises near the SP office.

 There is no direct city bus to the new premises, citizens will have to get down at Kolhapur Cross or RTO circle and walk all the way to the corporation office.

 At the moment there are not many shops like photocopying there but with time all will come up there.

 Today there is the hearing of the Case field by corporator on the Mayor and the other officials in regards to the postponement of the Mayoral poll.

  1. I am from the field of accounting and auditing. There is a concept of ” Substance over Form” in auditing. Applying the same to this situation, we should ask why we are fighting over a symbol such as a flag when we are reckless and careless about the principles and ethics symbolised by the flag.
    I know there is no use of raising a debate over this. Please let me know if we can do something constructive in this regard. I individually have already started. For the beginning I am planting and maintaining long lasting trees.

  2. Hi Vinayaka,

    I appreciate your thoughts regarding the symobol of Hindusism “Saffron Flag”. As you know already…. This is purely political issue… And the related people taking undue advantage of the issue….

    Now We hope that.. It should be resolved peacefully,… and the higher authorities should take care about this…

    We have to continue with the same spirit of Belagaumism… and let the other cities know that Belagavi is famous for not only for political issues… but also for unity and integrity….

    Nagesh B
