According to villagers, the government-backed project changed the lives of residents of the village in many ways. “We don’t have to go to forests and spend a long time collecting wood for fire anymore. Utensils & walls don’t get blackened now & the food gets cooked on time. It saves a lot of effort and time,” ANI quotes a resident of the village.
