Some of the main challenges faced by the citizens in Khengjoy Sub-Division may be listed as below:

1.      Infrastructure: There is lack of motorable roads in many villages under Khengjoy Sub-Division. Most villages have also not been electrified.

2.      Connectivity: Except for the weekly bus service between Pallel and Khangbarol, there is no public transport system within the sub-division as well as connecting the sub-division to the nearby towns of Moreh, Chakpikarong or the state capital of Imphal. Besides telephone/mobile network is not available in most villages.

3.      Absence of Line Departments: The sub-division requires functional line departments in various fields such as Education, Agriculture, Electricity, Health, Police, Veterinary etc., in order to bring about an all-round development for the villagers.

1.      Law and Order: The situation has improved in the last few years. Army and Assam Rifles personnel are now stationed in a number of villages. Besides, there is a Police Station in Molcham Village. The present situation needs to be sustained in order to assure the villagers that they may pursue their activities in peace.
