Bokaro Steel Plant Bokaro Jharkhand – The First Swadeshi Steel Plant

Standard

It was a very rewarding day for us- the previous one. But this day was new and the morning crisp and the weather perfect. We were all going to the Bokaro Steel Plant Bokaro, Jharkhand for the day to check out the impressive steel plant. I had done my research over the place. The Bokaro Steel Plant was an integrated public sector steel plant and was built with the help of the Russians. It was the fourth of its kind in India and had been incorporated with the Steel Authority of India. Functional since the year 1972, the plant had a total of 5 blast furnaces that produces a huge quantity of liquid steel.

The Plant was situated in the Bokaro district of Jharkhand and it took us sometime to reach there. The plant premises were as though a city by its sheer size. The front gate in front of which the driver left us had two sections- the entry and the exit. I assumed that public vehicles were not allowed to enter the premises without permission so we began on foot. We had to write down our names and contact addresses in the entry journal of the Plant that the security personnel maintained there. It was a fair walk to the various buildings inside which housed the administrative offices but the main factories were rather off limits for casual visitors. There was a significant effort seen in beautifying the nearby places most likely for the green initiative possibly undertaken by the company to combat the pollutants in the area. Mass modernization was already being done in the campus and if one had to go by statistics, the plant output capacity was being tremendously increased.

In a rather developing country as we are perceived, the Bokaro Steel Plant Bokaro, Jharkhand was every reason to be very proud of what our country has achieved since independence. There had been a concern for the environmentalists in the past with the by-products of the Plant but it was successfully handled. Now it was time back to the pavilion to the Rajdhani Plaza, Ranchi for some rest.
