The Government of Andhra Pradesh posthumously gave him 10 acres of land and a Tamra Patra (Certificate) which was given in accordance with the struggle that he fought for the freedom against the British. Apart from serving in several prisons in Andhra Pradesh he also had the privilege of meeting Late Sarvepalli Radhakrishna during the independence struggle. He was also in many noteworthy prisons like Bellary Jail, Tiruchirapalli Jail, and Vellore prisons during the freedom struggle.
