The State

The State of Jharkhand was created on 15th November 2000 after carving 79 lakh hectares of geographical area from the State of Bihar, most of which consists of plateau and hills and are ecologically different compared to Bihar plains.
Jharkhand state has a unique relation with forests since ancient times. The word ‘Jharkhand’ connotes area of land covered with forests. The state is endowed with abundant mineral wealth, flora and fauna.
Over thirty two indigenous communities exist harmoniously in Jharkhand. These communities have several colourful nature friendly festivals like Sarhul, Karma etc.
The recorded forest area is 29.76% of the total geographical area of the state. Agriculture is the main stay for the 80% of rural population, but as much as 92% of the total cultivated area of the state is unirrigated.
Animal husbandry is an integral part of rural Jharkhand. Agriculture and animal husbandry are complementary to each other. Bullocks are still used for ploughing the fields. Backyard farming of goat, sheep, poultry and duck has a significant share in rural economy.
