The entanglement entropy approach to study the dependence of entropy upon the location of degrees

of freedom (dof ) (near/far) from the horizon is discussed in this article. We try to understand the

physical deviation of the area law for the excited states by incorporating the logarithmic and power

law corrections. We show that the dof near the horizon gives contribution to the total entropy of

the system in the ground state and away from the event horizon gives contribution to the excited
