As the Village is small so basic facilities are absent No hospital, No Markets, No High School for Boys Girls therefore peoples especially females have to face many difficulties in order to fulfill their daily or occasional necessities. Main problems of the village are as under.
Wastewater Removal System
The most prominent problem of the village is the removal of wastewater of homes and rain the main obstacle in this way is Lower Jhelum Canal (it cuts the village body from villagers own land) and land of other villages around this village. In the absence of sewerage system some people of the village has to face problems like accumulation of rain water in front of their houses, when the LAKE (chhapparr present in the center of the village) is filled with water it come out in the streets this not only paralyse life in their homes but also a source of many diseases like MALARIA, CHOLERA and SCABIES etc.
Problems of the Poor People
People of the village are not very rich nor very poor. Except few houses all other can earn their livelihood easily those who are poor they are helped by the other village people in the form of Fitrana or other things in the name of God so fortunately every one is able to eat honorably.
Educational Problems Faced by Girls
This is another main problem faced by students especially by Girls as there is no institute after 5th class so the girls have to face great hurdle in their career so most of them stop their education because villagers does not allow their girls to go away from their homes, so most of the girls are under middles if other want to carry on their education they do so either Privately through Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education Gujranwala or through Allama Iqbal Open University Islamabad.
Promises made by the Political Leaders of the area
This is a very interesting topic because when there is period of election especially of National and Provincial Assembly it looks that all the candidates are our own and they are in election only for our village because they solve all the problems of the village with their tongue in few minutes but as soon as they becomes leaders they even refuse to recognize their major supporters until the next election comes.
Crime rate in the Village
As it is already mentioned that most of the reports in Thana Malakwal belong to this village in which most are to pull legs or arms of the opposing party but the steeling of cattle’s is an important problem faced by villagers especially JUTT families such Thieves does not belong to this village but to nearby villages whom names are not good to mention, in this village few black seeps in young generation are also going on wrong path.
ALLAH BLESS THIS VILLAGE(Ameen)
