The development of Ralegansiddhi started with reconstructing the Saint Yadavbaba temple. The condition of the temple was very bad in the beginning. As it was a place of inspiration, the villagers reconstructed the temple with Shramdan. Today we can see the huge and beautiful temple. In the same way the temples of Goddess Padmawati and Lord Shankar are rebuilt by Shramdan.
After the change in village economy, the villagers have transformed different institutions by their contribution. For example, the milk collection center Sant Yadavbaba Co-operative Milk Society, which was working in a small place, is transformed in to well furnished building. In the same way Co-operative credit society, Big well of watershed Recharging Society have changed. In this work villagers have contributed on a large scale and small scale by their Shramdan.

Community Marriage- To keep the harmony, to eliminate the difference between rich and poor and to save the unwanted expenses on big fat Indian marriages and thereby to use that money for needy people, Ralegan Siddhi has started community marriages in 1976. Many poor parents are always worried about their daughter’s marriage. Community marriage has reduced the expenditures of marriage and they do not give and take dowry. All the villagers distribute all the work in the marriage and complete it successfully because they all strongly believe that whole village is one big family.
