The long pending demand of approach road under the PMGSY scheme was approved in the year 2007 which brought cheers to the inhabitants but it remained a distant dream as the road has not been completed even after the passage of 14 years now.

Although the construction on the 10 km stretch road was executed in 2007 by the Rural Development Department, it was abandoned midway due to unknown reasons.

The people living in the village are living miserable life as according to them almost 20 people with medical emergencies have died so far, most of them pregnant women, who couldn’t reach the hospital on time.

The absence of an approach road has also affected other developmental works besides the educational institutions in the village.
