Which place is famous for iron and steel plant?

Jamshedpur is famous for iron and steel plant in India. TISCO was started in 1907 at Sakchi, near the confluence of the rivers Subarnarekha and Kharkai in Jharkhand. Later on Sakchi was renamed Jamshedpur. Geographically, Jamshedpur is the most conveniently situated iron and steel centre in the country. This place was only 32 km away from Kalimati station on the Bengal-Nagpur railway line. It was close to the iron ore, coal and manganese deposits as well as to Kolkata, which provided a large market. TISCO gets coal from Jharia coalfields, and iron ore, limestone, dolomite and manganese from Odisha and Chhattisgarh. The Kharkai and Subarnarekha rivers ensured a sufficient water supply. Government initiatives provided adequate capital for its later development.
