More than 20 families, who have been in this business since the British era, said that BMRCL has already started digging up the corporation school ground and vacant land at the entry to Pottery Town.
“Every year, I get about 500 pieces of clay and paper Ganesha idols from Puducherry, which I sell for Rs 22,000.
There is no space to display any more.”Manjula from Pottery Works said they plan to make only 4-inch Ganesha idols as they can stock them easily.
“Small sheds are being made at one corner of Pottery Town, however, it is not going to be sufficient for the many potters here who want to display their stock”, said Kaviraj another Potter.
