Denotification favoured trust before its birth

As much as 82 acres of land at Belur Industrial Area have been denotified in favour of an education trust formed by a group of academicians said to be close to Large and Medium Scale Industries Minister Murugesh Nirani. Sources said Vishwabharati Educational Trust headed by Prof Arvind Galgali of BVB College of Engineering and Technology, Hubli, known to be a mentor of Nirani, was formed on August 5, 2009.

Eight months prior to its formation, on January 1, 2009, the KIADB land was denotified and allotted to the trust. While the office of the trust is said to be at Kotambai College in Hubli, discreet inquiries revealed that no such office existed at the given address.
