Dttubhai and Vaishali Chauhan of Ridhora village of Seloo block have constructed a Bio-gas after getting support from KJBF. The landless

the village to start the biogas. They had two cattle and are planning to get two more with KJBF support. Now, Vaishali speaks with smile “I
won’t have to fetch wood from the forest and I am also earning money because I am cooking in Balwadi”.
