Economy Of Ranchi

Economy in Ranchi includes agriculture, tourism, mineral resources and industries. Jharkhand is predominantly a tribal state and nearly 80% of population is engaged in agriculture. Moderate climate aids cultivation of crops such as  bajra, wheat, sugarcane, til, oil seeds, pulses etc. Fruits and vegetables are brought fresh to the market. These include brinjal, ladies finger, tomato, gourd, lemons and fruits such as papaya, mango, litchi etc. flood the markets with their color and aroma.

Farmers resort to traditional ways of cultivation, although government has made efforts to educate them in the use of technology for better yield. For instance, farmers plant legumes with other crops. This facilitates nitrogen fixation and makes the soil fertile. So, gram is planted with mustard or wheat. Animal dung is used as manure which is natural and harmless. ''doba'' are dug out and lined with polythene for rain water harvesting.

However, there are some major constraints for the farmers. They find it difficult  to cultivate crops in hilly terrains, plateaus and valleys as it leads to soil erosion. Declining soil fertility due to depletion of carbon content in the soil is another major factor. Most of the farmers do not have access to good quality seeds and electricity. The risk that the farmers undertake is very high whereas insurance coverage is negligible. 

Efforts by the government has brought respite to the farmers, nevertheless. ''Kisan Kushali Yogna'' allows them to rear livestock along with producing dual crop. ''Krishi Bazaar Samiti'' marketing  complex at Ranchi is a boon for farmers. National Agricultural Insurance Scheme provides financial security to these farmers. Under the ''Mukhya Mantri Kisaan Credit Card Yojna'', interest subsidy is provided to farmers who repay their loan within specified time framework.


The tourism sector contributes its portion of revenue as tourists visit Ranchi and are enthralled to visit temples, waterfalls, wildlife sanctuaries, museums and other monuments.


There are a number of small scale and big industries in Ranchi. The industrial Policy 2001 gave a boost to economy. Small Scale Industries like sericulture, handicrafts and hand loom received marketing assistance. Software Technology Park was set up in Ranchi.

Jharkhand Industrial Policy 2012 includes  fiscal concession and benefits, single window system for time bound clearance, development of industries and  infrastructural development and opening of ancillary units by mega industries etc. Ranchi has become a hub of medium and large industries owing to abundance of mineral resources and man power. The youth has got advantage of employment opportunities in their own home town.

Industrial environment has improved owing to globalization, privatization and liberalization. Sick Units have been taken care of. There is stress on PPP (Public-Private-Partnership) in the field of infrastructural development and  human resource development.Special incentives have been announced for the benefit of SC/ST and women entrepreneurs. The industries are upgraded themselves and received  ISO 9000/14000 certifications. It is also imperative for the industries to strictly adhere to  pollution control norms.
