Dhanbad Parliamentary Constituency Election and Results Update

Known as the 'Coal Capital of India', the district of Dhanbad in Jharkhand partially houses the Dhanbad Parliamentary constituency. The Dhanbad Lok Sabha seat is one of the 14 in this eastern Indian state. It is spread not only in the Dhanbad district, but also in parts of the Bokaro district. Out of the six legislative assembly segments which together form this Parliamentary constituency, the Bokaro and Chandankiyari segments lie in the Bokaro district, while the remaining are part of the Dhanbad district.

According to Election Commission of India 2009 data the total electorates in the Dhanbad Parliamentary constituency (constituency number 7) were 1,806,475 of which 799,935 are females and 1,006,540 are males. The Chandankiyari Assembly segment is reserved for candidates belonging to the Scheduled Castes. Known as industrial hubs of the state, both Dhanbad and Bokaro districts are home to some of the large-scale industries in the country, such as the Bokaro Steel Plant, the Bharat Coking Coal Limited in Dhanbad, the BEML Limited, the Bokaro Power Supply Corporation Private Limited, etc. Both these districts are controlled by the Bokaro Industrial Area Development Authority or BIADA, which ensures the supply of materials for industries in other parts of the country. However, both these districts have been identified as economically underdeveloped, as per the Ministry of the Panchayati Raj in 2006, and this constituency is thus funded under special schemes such as the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme.
