The two communidades, communidade of Olaulim and Communidade of Pomburpa controlled and contributed for the development of village before independence and continued to do so in the recent past with the grand returns from cashew laden hills, the fields, sluice gates. Agriculture and fishing remains the main occupation of the people. The point at which the sluice gate now lies at Muddi was once a trading point. Salt, tiles etc. was brought in while home grown produce was taken out in canoes for sale in fairs.
