Jharkhand State : At a Glance


Jharkhand State is situated in eastern India. It is surrounded by Bihar to the North, Uttar Pradesh and Chattisgarh to the West, Odisha to the South, and West Bengal to the East.

  • Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Dhanbad, Bokaro, Deoghar, and Hazaribagh are some of the main cities and tourist attractions of the state.
  • The 28th state of the Indian Union was brought into existence by the Bihar recognization Act on 15th November 2000 the Birth Anniversary of legendary Bhagwan Birsa Munda.
  • Jharkhand is famous for its rich mineral resources like Uranium, Mica, Bauxite, Granite, Gold, Silver, Graphite, Magnetite, Dolomite, Fireclay, Quartz, Feldspar, Coal (32% of India), Copper (25% of India), etc.
  • Forests and woodlands occupy more than 29% of the state which is strongest the highest in India.


  • The region enshrouded in the hills and forests inaccessible to a large segment of people. The tribes of this state are living here for thousands of years and not much changed in their life and culture over the ages baring last few decades.
  • Many scholars now believed that the language used by tribes in the state of Jharkhand is identical to the one used by Harappan people. This has led to a great interest in the deciphering of Harappan inscriptions using rock paintings and language used by these tribes.
  • For a greater part of the Vedic age, Jharkhand remained obscured. During the age of Mahajanpadas around 500 BC, India saw the emergence of 16 large states who controlled the entire Indian subcontinent.
  • The supremacy of Janpadas was often decided by the power of swords and bows and axes and other weapons.
  • The region around Jharkhand was extremely rich in its mineral resources including Iron and the Janpad that controlled this region, Magadha, eventually controlled most of the country.
  • The power of Magadha continued to occupy the central state in the Indian subcontinent for a long time and saw the emergence of mighty empires such as Mauryas and Guptas.
  • After the end of the last big Hindu empire of Guptas, India saw the emergence of a number of numerous regional powers who tried to control this region. The same was the case with Muslim Sultans of Delhi and their feudatories in Bengal, who tried to control this mineral-rich area.
  • British identified this region as a great source of raw material for their blooming industries back home and to exploit the region to its full potential, established a vast network of railway lines. Calcutta was developed as a major port to export raw materials from this region to England.
  • Birsa Munda (1875- 1900) and Sido & Kanho are the legendary heroes of the tribals of this state who fought against the oppressive rule of the British government. Birsa Munda, now regarded as a god, fought for tribals' natural rights over forests and land that was mercilessly being acquired by the British for exploitation.
  • After a long fight, Birsa Munda was captured by the British authorities and died in prison. Sido & Kanho were another set of revolutionaries among the tribals, now regarded as tribal heroes.
  • For a long time, Jharkhand remained as a part of Bihar, but after Indian independence, the demand for a separate state of tribals started gaining momentum.
  • In the last fifty years, the tribes of this region fought against the hegemony of Northern Bihar, a region that gained from the mineral deposits of this region like anything.
  • Jharkhand became a state under the Republic of India on November 15, 2000, and how it is poised for a great leap forward.


  • Most of the state lies on the Chota Nagpur Plateau, which is the source of the Koel, Damodar, Brahmani, Kharkai, and Subarnarekha rivers, whose upper watershed lies within Jharkhand.
  • Much of the state is still covered by forest. Forest preserves support populations of tigers and Asian Elephants.

Soil Content: The soil content of the Jharkhand state mainly consist of soil formed from the disintegration of rocks and stones, and soil composition is further divided into;
  • Red soil- found mostly in the Damodar valley, and Rajmahal area.
  • Micacious soil- containing particles of mica, found in Koderma, Jhumri Telaiya, Barkagaon, and areas around the Mandar hill.
  • Sandy soil- generally found in Hazaribagh and Dhanbad.
  • Black soil- found in the Rajmahal area.
  • Laterite soil- found in the western part of Ranchi, Palamu, and parts of Santhal Parganas and Singhbhum.


  • There are three well-defined seasons in Jharkhand. The cold-weather season, from November to February, is the most pleasant part of the year.
  • High temperatures in Ranchi in December usually rise from about 50-degree Fahrenheit (10-degree Celcius) into the low 70s F (low 20 C) daily. The hot-weather season lasts from March to mid-June. May, the hottest month, is characterized by daily high temperatures in the upper 90s-F (about 37 C) and low temperatures in the mid-70s F (mid-20s C).
