Coal mines[edit]

Various projects have been going on for utilization of coal which is present in huge amount in Dhanbad. Bharat Coking Coal Limited (BCCL) is a subsidiary of Coal India Limited with its headquarters in Dhanbad, works the Sudamdih coal mines since nationalization of coalmines in 1971. It is a more than a century old underground shaft mine and washery.[2] Due to the presence of coal washery, the Damodar river is badly effected and polluted, making its water unusable for local community.
