As the trade in tanning of landlords is carried out there, the place has become dump and it is in turn affecting the sanitation of the place. Majority of the landlords are tanners and few are mill-workers and business men. The average income of the landlord family is Rs. 168/-per month and that of tenant family is Rs. 147/-per month.
