Dhanbad

Dhanbad

Dhanbad district was constituted in 1956 by carving out the old Dhanbad subdivision, Chas and Chandankiyari police stations of the Sadar subdivision of the erstwhile Manbhum district. Dhanbad is police district since 1928. The re organization of the district in the state of Bihar which took place after 1971 did not affect the district of Dhanbad. Later in 1991 Bokaro district was formed and one subdivision consisting of two blocks from Dhanbad district was carved out.

Dhanbad is famous for its coal mining and has some of the largest mines in India. The Indian School of Mines (ISM) is located in Dhanbad. This is why Dhanbad is also known as “The Coal Capital of India”

In 2006 the Indian government named Dhanbad one of the country’s 250 most backward district (out of a total of 640) It is one of the 21 districts in Jharkhand currently receiving funds from the Backward Regions Grant Fund Program (BRGF). The survey was conducted under Swachh Bharat Mission by Quality Council of India and is called ‘Swachh Survekshan 2016’. The survey covered 476 cities in India. Dhanbad was declared the dirtiest city in India.
