Industry

         Although the district has coal mines on large scale still it is one of the least industrialized districts of the state. The coal mines concentrated in Boarijore Prakhand are managed by Rajmahal Coal Project (R.C.P.) a subsidiary of ECL. There are also deposit of coal in Sunderpahari Prakhand but its operation is almost stopped after nationalization. The district can hardly attract investors from other states because of Santhal Pargana Tenancy Act which prevents transfer of land in any form and that in turn restricts bank loan. Besides there being no rail link and non-availability of uninterrupted power supply also impede the industrialization in the districts. The R.C.P too which is the only capital productive project, is not successful in intensifying the economic activities in the area . Infrastructure facilities are awfully  scarce. There is slow progress in the transport sector. The nearest rail link is at the distance of 80 CMS from the district Headquarter . Institutional capital investment is also scarce . Method of providing credit by nationalized  commercial banks are largely frustrating , which is uncovered  by 24.16 % C.D ratio in the district   Due to all these reasons only 3.36 % of population of the district is engaged in manufacturing.

            In addition to the above a number of small scale Industries like Brick manufacturing, Milk products and Gur manufacturing, Bamboo wares, Bakries, Carpentry, Iron smithy, Polltry & Automible work shop are scalted through out the District.

           Though the district is an agricultural  district but it is rich in unexploited  mineral  wealth .The mineral wealth of the vast track of Damin-e-Koh  comprising more than one third part of the district has not been explored, on account of lack of  communication. In a way   the  industrial potential of the district has not yet been properly surveyed. Likewise the proper utilization   of forest produce has also not been made .
