Why does the Chotanagpur Plateau region have the maximum concentration of the iron and steel industry? Explain with three reasons.

Answer :

Chotanagpur plateau extends from West Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, and eastern Madhya Pradesh. It is also called Damodar Basin. The reason why this region has the maximum concentration of the iron and steel industry are as follows:


1. Iron ore and coal are found in abundance, in close proximity to each other. This makes it a suitable location for setting up an iron and steel industry. Other minerals like limestone, bauxite, and manganese are also available in good quantity.


2. It is easier to get labour from nearby areas of Bihar and Orissa.


3. This region has a well-connected transported system. This makes it easier to transport raw material and finished goods from one place to another. This is also situated near a port, making it more suitable.
