Roads request in jade
Sorab, Shimoga District   said on
1. There is no proper roads to connect with other main citys. 2. No KSRTC BUS facility available, only private company buses are there, But they are not providing good services and also they are ristricted to only few other small villages, There is no direct connectivity to major citys like Hubli, Haveri, Bangalore, Etc... Even though Jade is such a big village and it is growned with all business related activity 3. Jade and its surrounding area peoples doing agriculture with variety of crops and some fruits, eventhough there is no APMC Market in Jade. 4. Jade is having only few school and private 1-PU college But there is need of some Govt Science commerse and arts college, And also Some technical training colleges Like Diploma and ITI, So many students travelling almost 60-70km for there school and college.
