25. It is difficult to calculate income of Dist , as it is related to transaction in nearby or far- away Dist, hence the method of income originating approach is adopted. Although the statistics regarding income is not available it is crystal clear that the income of Dist is very little as compared to other Dist.

The forest area is only 2.47% of total area and it is very less than that of the state. The environmental ideal percentage is 33%, hence efforts for a forestations is need of the hour but the work has a slow and negligible pace. Ambajogai has maximum proportion of forest area of 5.45% , Dharur 5.08%, Kaij 4.86 %, Beed 3.48% , Patoda 2.22%, Ashti 1.82%, Majalgaon 0.55%, Parali 0.54%, and Georai nil (0.00%) ,therefore Georai, Parli, Majalgaon, Ashti, must have more plans of forestation.
