Recommendations for Village facilities upgrade -
Advocacy for raising Govt. involvement for overall development of the village.

Currently, the school is only uptil the 8th standard.  Beyond this, all students have to travel 2-3 Km to the neighboring village to complete schooling at 12th level.  This results in a number of them, especially girls, dropping out.  A long pending demand is to upgrade the current facilities to the 12th.  This would require Govt. interaction for school building & allocating teachers.

There are only 3 bathrooms for all 550 students, urge Government funding for constructing 5 more  (5ftx5ft) in school premises at an estimated cost of Rs. 25000 each. The village lies 6 Km from the Gurgaon – Faridabad highway with a motorable road in decent condition, yet, there is no public transport available.  All buses stop on the main highway after which villagers have to walk 6 Km to the village.  Bus connectivity will help people commute for work in Delhi/GGN/FBD and give a boost to commercial activities.

General upgradation of electricity supply, water and general hygiene is a big area of concern.
