The Bokaro River flows through the Hazaribagh and Bokaro districts in the Indian state of Jharkhand.

Course[edit]

The Bokaro River rises on the Hazaribagh plateau, south of Hazaribagh, but quickly skirts the southern face to pass in a narrow and beautiful valley between Jilinga and Langu Hills.[1] It passes through the West Bokaro and East Bokaro coalfields.[2][3] It flows into the Konar River shortly before the latter flows into the Damodar River.[1]

Barrage[edit]

A barrage has been constructed at the point of its confluence with the Konar River to supply water to Bokaro Thermal Power Station.[4]
