Review of Chilahari Village:
“Chilahari has an advantage of having a road on one side and a stream on the other side. It is a big village divided geographically into 4 “tolas” – uttar (north), Purav (east), Paschim(west) and dakhin (south).
A primary school is there in the village. With a missionary hospital at 0.8 km and a a primary and a high school in the village, Chilahri is well suited to health and educational facilities.
The agricultural land is highly fertile as it lies in the Ganga basin. Crops like paddy, wheat, pulses and array of vegetable crops makes it a highly agriculture based village. However, large scale migration haunts the village.
Predominantly Hindu population (Rajput Bisen being a prominent group here) with a few hundreds of Muslim population too.
