The Gurjar villages in these areas have the distinction of representing the country in Armed forces in high numbers almost from every family. The villages are still backward and have started receiving electricity only recently.There is acute shortage of water in some of the villages.Agriculture and animal husbandry are the main occupation of people in villages and the main kharif crops are bajra,lentil(moong) etc, the rabi crops include wheat,mustard, gram(chana). Most of the houses in villages have cows, buffalo, goat, sheep and some domesticate camels as well. With the advent of national dairies like Nestle and Amul, Dairy farming has turned out to be a profitable occupation for the villagers. People frequently travel to Hindaun City, Mahu, Todabhim and even Jaipur as they are the nearest markets.Condition of Roads is substandard in most of the parts.
