Review of Bardod Village:
“Our village is one of the best. Close to Neemrana and highway. We have excellent private and government schools also.
We have many colleges nearby like NIIT, Raffles University, School of Aeronautics and Cambay Hospitality.
Have never faced any shortage of water or electricity. Due to industries, we can find job opportunity in village itself.”
