Economy of Gariyaband

Gariyaband falls in a very non industrialized region and therefore economic importance of traditional agricultural sector in this part of the world is way too obvious. This importance is very easily reflected in employment numbers. More than 50% of Gariyaband’s local labourers are directly or indirectly engaged in agriculture sector. Talking specifically about indirect engagement in agricultural sector, then it mainly refers to many small scale agro based factories operating in and around this town. These decent number of agro based factories and other small industries play a second fiddle in generating employment and revenue for this town. Another important sector is service sector, which though is at a very nascent, but it generates sizeable employment for locals here. Gariyaband’s nascent and small service sector mainly compromises of decent numbers of banks, hospitals, clinics, retails shops etc. Overall, in conclusion it can be said Gariyaband is still an underdeveloped economy that is either struggling or is in a very slow process of modernizing itself.

Ghatarani Waterfall : Just 25 kms away from Jatmai Temple is Ghatarani Waterfall, unarguably one of the most beautiful and popular waterfall of Chhattisgarh state.

Jatmai Temple :
This immensely beautiful Jain Temple resides in adjoining town of Rajim, located some 50 kms away from Gariyaband town. While this beautiful temple coupled with scenic surrounding makes for a heavenly setting, but what is even more beautiful is that just adjacent to this temple is equally waterfall.

The best time to visit Jatmai Temple and waterfall is just after rainfall, i.e. from September to December. This is the time when waterfall has plenty of water.

Bhuteswaranath Temple : This is a huge Shivlinga that is located just 3 kms away Gariyaband town.

Besides, this huge Shivling is surrounded by immense lush greenery on all four sides. All in all, Bhuteswaranath is a one of the unique shivling that you’ll ever come across.

Transportation in Gariyaband

Just like healthcare services, even transportation services of this town suffers from problems of infrastructure deficiency. This deficiency is most visible in town’s local transportation services, which is solely taken care by decent number of auto rickshaws. Although these decent number of auto rickshaws are duly playing their role, but their numbers are way too less. Besides, complete absence of alternative transportation services like bus or cab services makes job of local auto rickshaws further challenging. Coming to connectivity, then as today Gariyaband does not have a railway station. The nearest railway station is Mahasamund Railway Station, which is located some 53 kms away from Gariyaband city. For travelling to other parts of Chhattisgarh state and also outside Chhattisgarh state everyday significant number of Gariyaband locals do flock to Mahasamund Railway Station.
