The management - since its inception in 1859 - has always done its best to augment or resolve any crisis that threatened the harmonious functionality of the community. This bond had always been the cornerstone for the bonding between the generations of the Banerjees and the resident working community.
Makaibari for the past hundred and fifty years has weathered many upheavals due to the strength of this fusion. The continuity, experienced independence with the departure of the British and arrival of Indian proprietors, the militancy of the Marxist unions of the seventies, the demand for Gorkhaland, its tumultuous impact on the tea industry caused by indefinite curfews, finally to its current calmer political orientation.
The Makaibari Joint Body was a fallout of the seven village councils. These have handled for over a century the well-being of their respective villages. In crisis times the estate management was approached for help, when an issue was beyond their control.
