Bokaro Steel City

Shopping Sightseeing Wildlife
Bokaro SteelCity is a major industrial centre and the fourth largest city in the Indian state of Jharkhand. It is the headquarters of Bokaro district (one of the most industrialised zones in India) and home to the largest steel plant in India and several other large, medium and small industries.Bokaro Steel City is the headquarters of the Bokaro District as well as Koylanchal range (Bokaro, Dhanbad and Giridih). It is one of the three headquarters of the Police IG zone, apart from Ranchi and Dumka, covering seven districts — Hazaribagh, Dhanbad, Giridih, Koderma, Chatra, Bokaro, and Ramgarh.HistoryFormerly there was a village named Maraphari deep in the jungles of Chota Nagpur. The closest village cluster was Chas. Purulia was the closest town and the area was ruled by the Maharaja of Kashipur. Folklore has it that this area came under Mughal rule by the conquests of Veer Man Singh. The region was named ManBhoom after him.(VeerBhoom and SinghBhoom are the neighbouring regions are also named after him.)This remote place came into prominence when Jawaharlal Nehru planned to build the first swadeshi steel plant with the help of the Soviets. The proximity to coal, iron ore, manganese, and other raw materials had helped in the selection of this place. The steel plant was incorporated as a limited company on 24 January 1964. It was later merged with SAIL and came to be known as Bokaro Steel Limited (BSL). The late 1960s and early 1970s saw heavy construction of the steel plant as well as the township. The first blast furnace started on 2 October 1972.
