Demography[edit]

More than 70% of the population is literate. Languages spoken are Hindi, Harauti . In nowadays MATHUR VAISH are in majority. Mathur vaish (BANIYA) seem to be sound in financial context and always are in eyes of another caste that is Brahmin,JAT, Although both live in harmony but when it comes to its own cast, they seem to differentiate from Baniya cast, which I think not good for social health

The main livelihood is agriculture. The sources of water are open wells and tube wells.
