A total of 35 families live in Bhatipada within the boundaries of Gram Panchayat Pathardi of Jawhar taluka and there are three to four other padas in this area. Bhatipada is across the Kalsheti River and most of the families have lived there for many years as the farm is across the Plot River. There is an unpaved road to get to the village through job guarantee and during monsoons this road is closed as even motorbikes do not go there. Similarly, to reach this place, one has to cross the Kalsheti river, but there is no bridge over the river, one has to descend into the water and cross the riverbed. During the rainy season, patients and pregnant women are in dire straits. For several years, the villagers have been calling for the construction of the main road connecting Bhatipada and the construction of a bridge over the Kalsheti River.
