A local resident says, ‘Our village was not like this before. was advanced. A new house has been given here. Village boys and girls do not have to go six kilometers away to study.’

According to another resident, earlier one had to walk for about an hour to collect fresh water from Jhiri. Now there is a tube well next to the house. It is not necessary to fetch water from the tank with difficulty.

Regarding medical services, a local resident says that there was no community clinic in the village. Earlier, if you were sick, you had to go to Dighinala Health Complex, 18 km away. Now health services are available in villages.

Most of the students dropped out soon after primary education due to lack of secondary school. As communication is impassable, the government took the initiative to set up a school here, facing various challenges.

UNO Muhammad Arafatul Alam of Dighinala in Khagrachari district said, ‘It is a remote area. Drop outs are high here. Now that the district administration is a school, students will have the opportunity to study in 19 surrounding villages.
