About dhanbad

Dhanbad is home to lush green forests that sprawl across acres of land, and buried deep in the heart of these forests are tonnes of coal, also known as 'black gold.' Coal by itself meets 75% of the national electricity requirement in the country, and a good part of it is sourced from Dhanbad. Often referred to as the Coal Capital of India, Dhanbad houses the biggest mines in the nation. \r\n\r\nBharat Coking Coal Limited, Indian Iron and Steel Company, Eastern Coalfields Limited, and Tata Steel have set plants in the district and propelled its development. As a result, Dhanbad is the leading immigration hub for people from all over Jharkhand and Bihar, making it the second most crowded urban agglomeration in the state and nationally stands at the forty-second position.\r\n\r\nThe famous academic institute called Indian School of Mines (ISM Dhanbad) lies here. It is trying to undo the damage caused by the pollution unleashed on the city by the coal mining industry.
