They had sowed the seeds of local kanchan and rajkumar species of maize bought from Tulsipur bazaar.

Seven out of eight local levels in Banke, the district in Province 5, do not have own ambulance service. The Narainapur rural municipality purchased an ambulance few months ago and the ambulance service is irregular here too due to lack of roads in good condition. The village people do not have easy access to better healthcare facilities.
