Chhattisgarh Map

Ever since the commencement of the planning process in India, concerted efforts have been made to systematically explore and develop the mineral resources in the country. Mineral, being finite and non-renewable natural resources, require special attention so that these are exploited and utilized in an optimal manner. These are our 'source of treasure' and constitute the backbone of the industrial development of the nation.

Bountiful nature has bestowed Chhattisgarh with vast reserves of all important minerals. Recognizing the pivotal role of mineral in the industrialization of the state, the government of Chhattisgarh has taken a number of policy decisions to eliminate procedural hindrances and to create the necessary environment, to allow entrepreneurship to grow, to develop and to thrive in this state.
