Carved out of the state of Bihar in 2000, Jharkhand (‘land of forests’) is slowly shedding its economic, social and education backwardness. In 2017-18, this eastern state recorded an economic growth rate of 10.22 percent (cf. 6.7 percent national average). Also endowed with rich mineral resources, Jharkhand (pop. 32 million) hosts several factories of Tata Steel and NTPC. Ranchi, the state’s capital, is emerging as an education hub with the promotion of several nationally benchmarked K-12 schools such as the Taurian World School, Ranchi, DPS, Bokaro, DPS, Dhanbad and Sapphire International School, Ranchi.
Jharkhand is arguably the most minerals-rich state of India. It has the country’s largest proven deposits of iron ore, copper ore and mica and is among the Top 3 producers of coal and bauxite. Given enabling infrastructure and rural-urban linkages and well-educated human resources, Jharkhand has the potential to emerge as one of India’s richest states. Per capita income: Rs.62,816 per year.
