It is a developing town which comes under Bharat Cooking Coal Limited's Urban Project. The Damodar River flows along Sudamdih village and divides it from Bokaro. Trekkers and state buses are available, which connect Sudamdih to Jharia, Dhanbad, Bhaga and Sindri.
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. Due to the presence of coal washery, the Damodar river is badly effected and polluted, making its water unusable for local community.
