The CMC has been formed by merging Hinkal, Koorgalli and Belawadi Gram Panchayats, which have a combined population of nearly 57,000 according to 2011 census.

Noting that the Government has also been appealed to provide adequate number of staff for the CMC office, he said  now that  the CMC has been formed, it is the responsibility of the new civic body to provide basic amenities and other necessary infrastructure to all areas coming under it.  

Maintaining that he pushed for the inauguration of the new office as people of Belawadi, Koorgalli, Hinkal Gram Panchayats (GP)and surrounding areas were facing a lot of inconvenience as the three GPs ceased to function following the formation of Hootagalli CMC,  GTD said that the residents of the CMC can make Government remittances and transactions at Karnataka Grameena Bank located closeby.
