Previously the slum had no legal connection and slum dwellers used hooks for getting electricity at their homes. Spanco solved the problem by erecting more new poles and additional transformer to cater to the demands of the slum.
The divisional railway manager (DRM) of South East Central Railway (SECR), SL verma expressed his helplessness in implementing the Rs 21 crore double line project between nagpur and kalamna due to encroachments in the sanctioned land.
