'Chakki’ (pot wheel) used to make pottery from clay. The clay was obtained from the ‘cheeki matti’, the mud from the 'Kacha' area inside the nearby levees () bordering the town from the Indus River. It is said that there used to live many potters in the area and the town got its name from the ‘chakki’ (pot wheel) used by these people.

Agriculture, retailer shops, jobs in government and private organizations are the main way of living. Whole-sale market is also growing up. The Bhitai Bazar & Bazar-e-Raza running through the heart of the town are the main artery of business of this small but bustling town of the locality, attracting many visitors and customers from nearby towns and villages as well.
