The much-awaited Kalaburagi Police Commissionerate office is likely to become a reality soon as the State government has decided to set it up by the end of February.
Inspector General of Police (North East Range) Manish Kharbikar told The Hindu that the Home Department issued a formal gazette notification in October 2018 in this regard.
Till a new office is constructed, the commissionerate will function out of the old IGP office building.
Home Minister M.B. Patil will inaugurate the commissionerate office tentatively on February 22.
Mr. Kharbikar said that the commissionerate office will be formed by merging 10 police stations in the city jurisdiction, and three police stations outside, including Gulbarga University, Farahatabad and rural police station.
The office will have 14 new police stations with four sub-division offices. It will also have 3 ACP zone offices and the office of the Police Commissioner.
The new Commissionerate will have one Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police, two Deputy Commissioners of Police (each for Civil and City Armed Reserve ), and three Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACP).
The office of the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) will be upgraded to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) and the office of Superintendent of Police (SP) will be designated as Deputy Commissioner of police (DCP) with the commissionerate police system
The new commissionerate will require 1,613 posts and Mr. Kharbikar said the government has accorded approval for the creation of 726 new ones.
He said the project will cost an estimated Rs. 170.6 crore, which will include construction of the new buildings, manpower, infrastructure, and vehicles.
The notification also stated that the expenditure required for running the new commissionerate from the old IGP office building has also been sanctioned. A sum of Rs. 1.5 crore has been released for the renovation work at the old building.
The government has allocated Rs. 153.69 crore for the new building of the Commissionerate building near the supermarket locality in the heart of the city.
A patch of land, measuring 2.29 acres, has been identified. “It was necessary to strengthen the force with the rapidly growing population in the district and the decision to set up a commissionerate makes sense,” the officer added.

Pay homage at the Sharana Basaveshwara Temple
Located near Raghavendra Colony, the Sharana Basaveshwara Temple is an abode of sheer bliss.

He believed and propounded the precept of working hard and selflessly for the benefit of society at large. The temple dates back to the 12th century, and is also called Sabha Mandapa. There are beautiful images of the celestial bird Garuda, elephants, flowers and parrots inside the temple. In addition, several pillars and arches in the temple further enhance its glory.

Made in 14th century India, the Gulbarga Fort is a treasure trove for history and architecture patrons. In its heydays, the Bahmani dynasty ruled the region with the fort as its base. Raja Gulchand commissioned the construction of this fort, but later, Krishnadevaraya, the king of Vijayanagara empire destroyed it. However, Adil Shah, the seventh ruler of Bijapur in the 17th century, got this fort rebuilt. That explains the presence of Jama Masjid inside the fort premises. There is also a wonderful lake adjacent to the fort that serves as a good backdrop to the whole scene. Visitors take delight in beholding the beautiful architecture and old-world artefacts preserved in this fort.
Soak up the tranquil air at Khwaja Bande Nawaz Dargah
Located in Khaja Colony, the spacious Khwaja Bande Nawaz Dargah is a haven of peace that draws many visitors in search of spiritual respite from their mundane life. The tomb of famous Sufi saint Gesu Daraz makes this site a powerful hub of spirituality. The fact that it is located far away from the city puts the visitors in a meditative mood without putting in much effort.
The dam was made between two mountains with the Gottam Gutta Forest in the background. It is ideally visited for the island located on the dam, where trekking and other adventure activities can be pursued. One such place to go on a long trek is Chincholi forest, where the easy marked trails lead to the pinnacle of the hills. After reaching the hilltop, visitors can enjoy the view of Chandarampalli dam as well as Chanadrampalli village.
