We feel very much proud in introducing The Hirekerur Taluka

backward area in the district. Our taluk is no exception
to remote place existing, nearly forty kilometers away from
the national highway and railway station at Ranebennur.
There were no good roads to reach Hirekerur. Even today
there are many remote villages in the taluk. Agriculture
is the main occupation and it depends upon Monsoon. The
only river Kumadwati runs in our taluk is not efficiently
utilized for irrigation.
