History of bokaro

Bokaro was initially called ManBhoom and was named after the ruler Veer Man Singh. Later, Bokaro was conquered by the Mughal Emperors. Decades later, when India had won its independence, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru planned to establish the first swadeshi steel plant in this area with the help of the Soviets. \r\n\r\nThe abundance of coal, iron ore, manganese made this area the first choice. In early 1964, the steel plant was incorporated as a limited company, which was later merged with the Steel Authority Of India Limited and came to be known as Bokaro Steel Limited. The city witnessed a thorough transition and significant development between the 1960s and 1970s. Massive construction of steel plants was carried throughout the 60s and 70s. The first blast furnace of this steel plant was started in October 1972. Later, during the 1980s, the township rapidly developed to incorporate new schools, parks, zoos, etc
