The villagers have to cross the local Nallah falling in this Panchayat, A large number of students and Government employees are worst sufferers as they have to cross the same on daily basis.
One can see small kids crossing the nallah and it becomes risky for them to cross the nallah in rainy season. Even the patients have lot of hardships while crossing this Nallah.
