District Profile

Sundergarh district was constituted on the !st January, 1948 out of the two ex-states of Gangpur and Bonai, which merged with odisha on that day. With over 40% forest cover and a majority tribal population this "beautiful" lives up to its name. Geographically the district is not a compact unit and consists to widely dissimilar tracts of expansive and fairly open country dotted with tree-clad isolated peaks, vast inaccessible forests, extensive river valleys and mountains terrain. broadly speaking peaks, vast inaccessible forests, extensive river valleys and mountainous terrain. Broadly speaking, it is an undulating tableland of different elevations broken up by rugged hill ranges and cut up by torrential hill streams and the river IB and Brahmani.There are substantial mineral deposits in the forest areas and rourkela is home to one of India's oldest integrated state owned steel plants. However its proximity to Jharkhand State has led to considerable left wing extremist activities in the border regions.
