Before introduction of Smokeless Chulhas (Cooking stove):
Taking in confidence members of Village forest protection management committee (V.F.P.M.C.) and panchayat representatives camps were organized in the year 2005-06. People present in the camp were briefed about the Model, use and benefit of smokeless chulhas. Purpose of introducing this new model is to save forest to certain extent as the quality of wood used in these smokeless chulhas is less them half of the quantity used in traditional chulhas.

Earlier, village ladies used to go to forest, collect or cut wood from trees, use of animal dung was common; wastage of time in such activities was another notable issue. This resulted in not finding time to attend their children, old ones and other house hold activities.

Smoke in the house created number of problems like darkening of house, blackening of walls, health hazard like cough, asthma, respiration problem, dirtiness.

Selection & introduction of smokeless chulhas :
Technically certified. There are two models of improved Smokeless chulhas, Known as “Chetak Chulhas” and “Udairaj Chulhas”. Only one item can be cooked at one time on “Chetak Chulha” where as two item like on Chapati & rice or Dal / Sabzi on one base and water heating on the other one in “Udairaj Chulha” In both the models fire wood is fed or burnt at one point only.
Thus second models saves our equal amount of wood. Commercially speaking it reduces 50% deforestation. So, Rajpurohit Seva Sansthan preferred to introduce Udairaj Models with the consultation of specialists from college of Technology & Agriculture Engineering (C.T.A.E.) and villagers. Pollution axperts are of the opinion that is an Eco-friendly, cost efficient and less hazardions for health & atmosphere.

We are thankful to Dr. N.S. Rathore of C.T.A.E. and his team, under the guidance of whom these scientific chulhas are being introduced in the tribal areas.
Total numbers of chulhas installed and families benefited is 1137.
