Survey no                  : 89.73                                 Area: 89.73 ha (Proper Forest)              Protection required          : CPT for 5 km length
Village Forest Committee: No
Except 20 ha of degraded deciduous forests the rest is covered by a teak plantation. Mainly the teak plantation is in need of protection, for which 5 km long CPT is proposed. This is very critical to prevent the valuable forest areas amidst villages getting encroached. Steps should be adopted to desilt water bodies, introduce energy saving devices to reduce dependence on firewood and introduce suitable cottage industries in the village.
