A Forest Protection Committee (FPC) was formed in this village after 1978 with the sole purpose of saving their forests. A Mahila Mangal Dal (MMD) was also formed in 1987 to mobilize the women against limestone mining near their village. The villagers also started a pani panchayat to ensure equal distribution of water throughout the village. The villagers have also began experimenting with the traditional practices of agriculture to ensure long-term benefits. This caused the establishment of the Beej Bachao Andolan (Save the Seeds Movement) to ensure that the soil remains fertile during cultivation. The villagers face problems of funds, distance from main cities to ensure sales of their produce and the burden of housework and agricultural operations, particularly on the women. The wildlife in this area has flourished due to this protection and the reappearance of certain predators is a good sign. The Forest Department (FD) has not given attention to this area but they should focus on empowering these village institutions to protect their surrounding environment.
