HUBBALLI: KHB colony Amargol Phase 2 near Nava Nagar faces many problems. The area comes under Ward 22. It lacks proper roads, a proper drainage system, water supply or other basic amenities in the area.

Karnataka Housing Board (KHB) Phase 2 has allotted 1,300 plots, and more than 500 houses have been built on 106 acres of land. Residents are suffering due to the negligence of housing board officials, who are supposed to provide basic facilities.

Mainly, adequate drinking water is unavailable. This KHB colony has not been handed over to the Hubballi-Dharwad municipal corporation. Residents have been demanding answers from authorities but have not received any, till date.

Speaking to STOI, Mruthunajay Matti, secretary of KHB colony Amargol Phase 2 Hitaabhivrudhi sangha said: “KHB colony phase 2 is located near Navanagar, about 10 km from the city centre. In 2000, plots were allotted. In the past few years, nearly 500 houses have been built. Approximately 2,000 people live in this area. The local residents have presented many requests to HDMC but they have not seen any results.”

Resident Basavaraj Jamboti said: “Due to haphazard garbage disposal, the area is in an unsanitary state. The number of mosquitoes and insects has increased. Unwanted trees have been grown large and become jungles. Colony roads are damaged by rain.

During night hours, poisonous snakes scare residents. Electricity poles have been installed along the road but no lights. Plot maintenance fees are collected by KHB, but we wonder where they go. The authorities should hand over the colony to HDMC, he demanded.

HDMC Ward no 23 Corporator Manjunath Burli said that since the KHB colony has not been handed over to HDMC, the development work is delayed. Until then, KHB should provide all basic facilities to the colony.
