The road condition is deplorable at present and the only hope at sight is the expansion and development works of the said road by PWD which is on the anvil. The public transport facility which ply this road are less than frequent due to the road conditions.The road project which materialised as a result of vision and aspiration of the people here has been a long pending demand of the majority of the people of the surrounding villages of Rongru Asim, Samangittim, Halwa Attong, Halwa Ambeng etc. These villages are remote in location and their source of sustenance have been made better by the development of the all weather road such as this one. The main objective of the development of internal road to these villages has been to ferry their produces and to cater to the everyday travel to and from Rongru Asim, their only visible civilisation. The horticultural and cash crop products such as Cashew, Battle nut, Turmeric and Ginger have been a household name of the villagers here. These items have been traded and bartered with the Southerners since time immemorial in the past. Now the close proximinty with Rongru Asim near the Baghmara border and the frequent visit by traders from the hinterland have helped in value addition of these products.
