Non - Farming activities includes activities excluding agriculture. Some of the non - farming activities are:

Dairy - It is a common activity in many villages. People feed their buffaloes on various kinds of grass and Jowar and Bajra. Then the milk is sold in nearby villages and towns. It is alos transported to far away towns and cities.

Small - Scale Manufacturing - Unlike manufacturing that takes place in big factories in the towns and cities, small scale manufacturing involves very simple production methods.

Shops - People involved in Trade(shopkeepers) buy various goods from wholesale markets in the cities and sell them in the village. A few families whose house is near the bus stop set up small shops that sell eatables.

Transport - People with rickshaws, tongas, tractors, truks, bogey and bullock carts are the ones in the transport service and they transport goods and services from one place to another and in return get paid for it.
