Dear Belagavites & friends of Belagavi City

Belagavi Airport(IXG) which was renovated recently was catering to 18,000 travellers in a month, from 8,000 travellers to 18,000 travellers in 6 months. Almost all flights to Bengaluru, Mumbai, chennai & hyderabad were going full and the people of Belagavi, Kolhapur, Bagalkot, Bijapur, Sangli, Miraj, Uttar kannada were happy since Belagavi has a strategic location and equidistant from Bengaluru and Mumbai. 

Our Prime Minister Shri.Narendra Modi to improve air travel and make it cheaper and available to the common man even from smaller towns launched the UDAN Scheme for Airports and Airline companies who get certain tax benefits and subsidies which in return has made air travel cheaper and we appreciate his vision but the scheme instead of benefitting Belagavi Airport it has been lead to its total closure, while Hubli Airport has taken the benefit of UDAN scheme and the number of flights have increased.

Belagavi is an educational Hub and is famous for Hydraulics, foundries, aerospace SEZ, Sugar, Cement, and other ancillary units serving the automobile sector. Belagavi is also the divisional Headquarters and boasts of hosting the winter sessions of Karnataka state Assembly & Council. With the Suvarna Soudha it is the unofficial second capital of Karnataka.

The people of South Western Maharashtra & Goa found it convenient to fly from Belagavi Airport though there is an airport in Goa.

with non inclusion of Belagavi Airport in UDAN Scheme it has hit brand Belagavi which has world class educational and industrial facilities and educates lakhs of local, North Indian and multi national students.

In this regard we have already met our Prime Minister Shri.Narendra Modiji who promised us he will include Belagavi in UDAN Scheme, BJP National President Shri.Amit Shahji, Civil Aviation Minister Shri.suresh Prabhu, MOS Civil Aviation Shri Jayant Sinha, BJP State President B S Yedyurappa and others, In fact our Member of Parliament Shri Suresh Angadi and Shri Prabhakar Kore are making numerous efforts to convince the Ministry to include Belagavi Airport in UDAN Schme.

I am requesting you to sign this petition so that the Central Government considers inclusion of Belagavi Airport in UDAN Scheme.Please also share it with your friends
