Unlicenced shops come under Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation scanner

Chairman of the standing committee on health, education and social justice in Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) Shivanand Muttannavar has revealed that as many as 5,000 shops running business in twin cities have not obtained trade licence.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday, he stated that as per a survey conducted by the revenue officials, there are 15,000 business establishments in Hubli-Dharwad out of which, 30 per cent are operating without licence. The HDMC has taken the issue seriously and has fixed July 17 as the deadline for all the 5,000 shop owners to obtain licence. If shopkeepers fail to get trade licence within the said date, the HDMC will close down all these shops and they have to once again seek fresh licence.

Hubli's stinking problem

HDMC officials who are striving to make 'Operation Dirty' a success had better take note.

Their ambitious project that aims at making the city clean and shiny will prove futile if they don't address the public toilet problem on a war footing. There are no adequate number of public toilets in Hubli. The existing public toilets are grossly ignored. The mobile toilets installed by the corporation are in bad shape. Due to lack of maintenance, these portable toilets are filthy and stinking, defeating the very purpose for which they were installed. Hubli has nearly eight lakh population but there are no sufficient public toilets or urinals to meet the requirement. To fill the gap the HDMC installed 10 mobile toilets at different locations. But since they are not cleaned and maintained regularly, most of them are rendered useless. People avoid using them. And the garbage containers kept beside these mobile toilets overflow, turning the surroundings a dump yard.

Organising Passport Mela frequently suggested

‘Increase number of online appointments to 450 a day’

The second day of the Passport Mela on Sunday at the Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) in Hubli received an overwhelming response.

On the first day of the Passport Mela, only 70 persons had approached the Hubli PSK. However on the second day, almost four times the number participated in the mela.

People from various parts of north Karnataka had reached the PSK before 9 a.m. on Sunday although it opened only at 10 a.m.

Many of them had come to know about the Passport Mela through the media while some had come after being informed about the same by passport agents.

The people were given the application forms for the passport and were asked to fill up the form manually. Those who finished filling up the application forms were then allowed inside to stand in the queue to submit their application forms at the counter. Many of the applicants were those who had already applied online but were unable to get the appointment at the Hubli PSK. Harish C. Patil, a teacher from Haveri, was happy that his brother Vignesh C. Patil (a BCA student) got a chance to directly submit the applications.

Smita Jadhav of Hubli, who used to work earlier in a stock broking firm, told The Hindu that she was fed up of trying to secure online appointment as her repeated attempts had failed. “Within two or three minutes after 6 p.m. the appointments would get exhausted. In fact, I had complained about the issue to the staff at the Hubli PSK. But they too were helpless”, she said.

“Surprisingly getting online appointment through the agents seems to be easy. They asked me Rs. 300 for getting online appointment”, she said.

Rashmi G. Huvin, an engineering graduate from Harihar had come to Hubli PSK along with her parents after having tried for over 15 days to get the online appointment. “I would log in by 5.55 p.m. but as soon as the clock struck 6 p.m. the website would suddenly become very slow. On a few occasions, appointment timings were displayed but by the time I selected one, there would be instructions asking to come back the next day”, Rashmi said.

Rashmi was naturally happy to get an opportunity to submit the applications directly. Although her application was not accepted for want of documents, the applications of her mother and father were accepted. Her father, Devaraj Huvin, said that such melas should be held more frequently.

While most of the applicants were thankful to the authorities for organising the Passport Mela, they felt that considering the number of people approaching the Hubli PSK, the number of online appointments should be increased. At present, the Hubli PSK is allotted 265 appointments each day. Considering the rush at the PSK there should be 450 appointments each day for the benefit of north Karnataka people.

Many people from different parts of north Karnataka participate in the mela

People said that they got to know about the mela from the media or the agents

Ellarigu Namaskara, I'm a new user, got to know of this forum by an email in Hubli-City e-group. This forum is far more active and I appreciate the enthusiasm.
Manjunath, as you may be aware, the Hubli article in wikipedia has become a mess and is in pathetic state. I want to improve it to a level where articles on Bengaluru, Mumbai or London are.
I noticed you have posted very nice images of Hubli city. I think your images are of bit low resolution perhaps you have used a cell phone to take them. I want to use some of your images in the article but I need good quality photos with high resolution, also you need to release the images under GPL/Wikimedia Commons license. May be you can use a digital camera if you have one.
What do you think? can we collaborate on that? help in this regard from other forum members is most welcome.:)
