History of Taoru
History of Taoru have lot of similarity with Mewat’s history. After all, Mewat is the most important city in entire Mewat District and also the fact that Taoru is located just few kilometers away from Mewat city. Now coming to history of Mewat region, then its history really came on its own during medieval era, when a local king Hasan Khan Mewati formed a small indigenous kingdom in present day Mewat region. However, Mewat region of medieval era was much larger in terms of land area. Many towns and villages that today fall in administration of present day Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan were also part of the erstwhile Mewat kingdom. Reverting back to king Hasan Khan Mewati, then he was undisputed leader and king of sovereign state of Mewat kingdom. It is strongly believed that king Hasan Khan Mewati was actually Hindu Rajput, but somewhere in 1320’s converted to Islam religion. We, however, would like to keep aside this speculative history and talk about historical Battle of Khanwa that he fought against Babur in year 1527. Although Hasan Khan Mewati was killed in this battle, eventually resulting in the demise of his kingdom, but the sheer courage that he and his army displayed in this battle has become part of historical legend.
Administration in Taoru
Local municipal committee looks undertakes civic responsibilities in Taoru. Starting with responsibilities, then some of its important responsibilities are apparently supply of drinking water to all households, maintenance of drainage and street lights. Another one of its important responsibilities is collection of property tax from all households. Now coming to its administrative details, then as of today there are only 13 wards in this municipal committee. Election for this 13 wards are held once in every 5 years.
Traditional agricultural sector obviously holds the upper hand in rural region like Taoru. However, owing to lack of irrigation facilities the local agricultural sector here severely suffers from low productivity, consequently resulting in lower income for farmers. Locals here therefore have to look into other occupations like animal husbandry for their livelihood. Taoru’s economic woes are further compounded by lack of industries. However, Taoru’s proximity with modern industrial regions like Gurgaon,Delhi and Sohna present lot of employment opportunities for locals here, which they obviously grab with both their hands. However, Taoru town can exploit this proximity for even better things. For instance, attracting economic investments. Unfortunately concerned authorities are doing very little on this front.
Healthcare Services in Taoru
With very less numbers of well equipped hospitals operating here, the local healthcare scenario obviously cannot be termed as a very pleasant one. The abysmal situation apparently results in migration of local patients to other cities like Gurgaonand Delhi. Besides, a very modern Multi Specialty hospital cum medical college is also operating in nearby village of Nelhar. This one of its kind hospital in entire Mewat region draws patients from length and breadth of the entire district – of course including Taoru town as well. Coming now to availability of chemist shops and clinics, then fortunately situation on this front is not that desperate. There are decent numbers of doctors and medical shops in this town, serving this town’s local patients pretty diligently and sincerely.

Banking Services in Taoru
In past few decades Taoru town has witnessed entry of many reputed banks, subsequently improving quality of local banking services here. However, despite entry of these reputed banks significant numbers of local people still don’t own a bank account here. This is mainly because private money lenders and small micro finance institutions continue to play a very dominant role here. This domination, however, has been surely challenged with coming up of many banks, but any present change in present status quo will surely take its own due time.

A local police station is operating in the very heart of Taoru town to ensure safety and security of all its ordinary citizens. This local police station though does not have to do much work at all to ensure this. That’s because unlawful activities and organized crime have never found any breeding ground here and this favorable status quo has remain unchanged even today. However, Taoru’s local police station still has to do some work to keep small criminals and their activities at bay.
local transportation services solely constitutes of decent numbers of
auto rickshaws plying across the town. Auto rickshaws here strictly
operate on sharing basis and travel within 20-25 km radius of the city,
wherein almost all the important local landmarks are covered. Coming to
connectivity, then via road Taoru town is well connected to cities like
Sohna, Gurgaon,Delhi and Rewari.
As for connectivity via train is concerned, then Taoru does not have
railway station of its own. The nearest railway station is Rewari

important cities of Haryana but also many important cities located
outside of it.
