The development of micro, mini and small hydro electric projects can not only make the district self sufficient in meeting the energy requirement for domestic use but also for the consumption of rural and small scale industries. Plain and gently undulating areas in lower portion of the district have high potential for development of tea gardens and horticulture. 

Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy. Farmers have adopted settled and wet rice cultivation. Plenty of sunshine and rains make the area suitable for raising of major crops like paddy, maize, millet and mustard and suitable edaphic factors give an added advantage for raising commercial crops like orange, banana, pear, sweet lime, guava , lichi, kiwi, pineapple, ginger, tea and cardamom.

In absence of organized marketing facility, the farmers do not get remunerative price for their surplus produce. The developmental agencies of the government despite various odds have made remarkable progress in the development of the road communication, power, water supply, health care, education, industries, agriculture etc. The contribution of BRTF in improving road communication in the area is commendable .
