Most girls and teen agers are involved in the tea garden as a labour for earning and to support of their family. The literacy rate of this area is very low compare to other village.
The community people are completely dependent on Agriculture with a small plot of a land, average1 to 4 bighas and in the tea garde and the wage of tea labourers are Rs. 180/- . Many of the community people are landless and daily wage earner, agriculture worker and Tea Garden worker.
