Jharkhand is the 28th state of the Indian Union. It has been carved out of Bihar and came into existence in November 15, 2000.

The state is extremely rich in the mineral resources such as iron ore, coal, mica, lime stone, graphite, asbestos, dolomite etc. It is among the richest zones in India containing 32.4 Per Cent of India Coal, 23.3 Per Cent of iron ore, 33.9 Per Cent of copper and 46.6 Per Cent of mica. Bokaro Steel plant, TISCO's plant at Jamshedpur and Heavy Engineering Complex at Ranchi are some of its prized inheritances.

The struggle for Jharkhand has been waged by the adivasis of chotanagpur Plateau and Santhal Parganas belt for well over half a century. Initially lead BY Jaipal Singh, the tribal communities of the region have been demanding freedom from exploitation. The Jharkhand state is truncated version of the original Jharkhand dream. It now comprises only southern Bihar.

The movement for an adivasi homeland attained new momentum when santhal leader Sibhu Soren formed Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) in 1992.
