Village has initiated construction of check dam in 1999 under the leadership of Mr. Mansukh Suvagiya , now President of Jal Kranti Trust, 51 check dams constructed in the village surrounding. This movement brings good economy benefits to the villagers. When this campaign started there were no such scheme in action to support to the cause by government, so farmers have contributed in cash and kind to store the water to rid away the water scarcity.
