However, during the reign of Giani Zail Singh, on Jain community's request the landmark clock Tower was renamed was Bhagwan Mahavir Clock Tower.
Like many clock towers across India, this one is not well maintained and the local administration fails to pay attention to these structures that carry historical value.. According to media reports, the following need to be taken care of immediately to preserve this beautiful colonial structure.
01. The digital clock fixed in the past shows incorrect time and the original clock - manually wound type is lying unfixed.
02. Though countless people want to go to the top of the tower through the spiral stair way, they can not do it. Above the first floor, stairs and wooden planks are either broken or weak. So, for heritage freaks, this clock tower's top floor is out of reach. The entry is prohibited by the Municipal Corporation..
03. The stench from the adjacent place is very bad. Illegal bill boards on the wall around this place mar the elegance of this historical tower,
04. The structure has cracks and there are plant growths at many places that might weaken the building. Since, the building above the ground floor is not in use, it has become a home to pigeons.
