The people of the panchayat told that the distance of the school for higher education in Durgavati area is about 15 km, where children are not able to reach.

For the last 50 years, students of about seven villages have to cross the Karmanasha river and go to Bhujna school, putting their lives at risk, via Kanhpur village located in Dhadhar. Government's ambitious plan canal pump is being constructed on this river, but the desire for the construction of the culvert is still incomplete.
