The Public Works Department has asked for an additional Rs. 74 lakh from the Government to complete the construction of the new RTO building coming up on Abbi Falls Road.
Currently the RTO office is located at ‘Sunnyside’, the residence of General K.S.Thimayya. People are hopeful once the RTO office is shifted to the new building at A B Road, Sunnyside can be converted into Gen K S Thimayya Memorial.
The Govt has already sanctioned Rs 2 Crore for the memorial.
