Hubli Administration

Today Hubli is unarguably one of the most important cities of Karnataka state. In fact after Bengaluru, Hubli is considered as the second most important city of Karnataka. Citing its economic and commercial importance, people even refer this city as ‘Chotta Mumbai’. The smooth civic administration of such a high profile city is undeniably of huge importance for overall development of the state.

The civic administration of Hubli city obviously rests on 3 important public institutions: municipal corporation, police and district collectrate. Below we’ve provided brief information on each of these institutions including very brief information about their function and administrative setup.

Administration in Hubli

Hubli - Dharwad Municipal Corporation

Hubli-Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) is one of the unlikely municipal corporations of India. Purely because it is one of the few municipal corporations that look into civic administration of not one but two cities: Hubli and Dharwad – separated from 20 kms from each other. Municipal Councils of these two cities were combined together way back in year 1962. Probably first of its kind experiment in the history of India’s civic administration.

As for achievements of this municipal corporation is concerned, then the fact that after Bengaluru these two cities are the most important commercial cities of Karnataka is itself a vindication of this municipal corporation’s civic achievements. In fact all thanks to 5 decades of pretty good civic administration by HDMC, Hubli in coming decades is all set to transform from tier 2 city into leading metropolis of India.

Hubli - Dharwad Police

Just like civic administration, even police administrations of Hubli and Dharwad have been combined. The police administration of Hubli and Dharwad cities were combined way back in year 1989. Since then Hubli-Dharwad Police has been looking into law and order of Hubli, Dharwad and many of its adjoining towns.

Today Hubli-Dharwad Police is completely laced with all state-of-the-art facilities. Right from state-of-the-art control room to specialized department and many other facilities. And of course Hubli-Dharwad Police also has police chowkies at all critical locations of the city. Below are few important emergency numbers of Hubli-Dharwad Police:  Read more

Dharwad District Collector

Hubli falls under the jurisdiction of Dharwad district. Dharwad district collector – as per the Indian law – is the chief revenue officer of the entire state. He/she looks into revenue collection of the entire district including land revenue, income tax dues, excise duties and irrigation dues. In case of Dharwad, however, deputy commissioner is akin to district collector. Such constitutional provision has been made only in few districts and Dharwad happens to one of those few districts.
