The conservation efforts started in 1985 with two members given the responsibility of watching over the forest. In 1988, the villagers formed a committee to protect the forest which was later turned into a Forest Protection Committee in 1995 under the Joint Forest Managament scheme of the forest department. The forest was basically protected by regular patrolling of the forest. Soon, the forest regenerated, and the people were allowed to collect NTFP and firewood, graze cattle and extract bamboo for festivals. This forest has brought about a sense of unity among the different groups in the village. Other villages and outside organisations seem to pose the greatest threat to this site.
