Borad, with 4,480 inhabitants in 1961, is a village in Taloda taluka lying approximately 16 km. (10 miles) from the taluka headquarters. It also includes the two hamlets of Chhota Dhanpur and New Ban, which were until 1955 treated as independent revenue villages. In respect of communications and transport, the village is poorly served, there being only kutcha road connecting it with Taloda and Shahada. It is cut off from Taloda during monsoons because of unbridged nallas and culverts. Principal crops taken are kharif groundnut and rabi jovar. Nearly 83 wells fitted with 58 engines, besides meeting the water needs of the village populace serve to irrigate the crops. Being situated hardly about 6.43 km. (4 miles; from one of the densely forested spurs of the Satpudas, the village enjoys a salubrious climate. The Forest department has established a depot here which also serves as a check-post. The village has a primary school, a library conducted by Borad village panchayat, a branch post office and a branch of the district central co-operative bank, Dhulia. There are two temples dedicated to Mahadev and one each to Ram and Hanuman. A weekly bazar is held on Tuesdays and is attended by people coming from nearby villages also.
