Dipka City

One of the prominent industrial cities of Chhattisgarh, Dipka in the district of Korba, is rich in mineral resources of coal. Believed to be the backbone of the economy of Chhattisgarh, the city of Dipka is particular famous for its opencast mines. The mines of the Dipka city have a vast reserve of high quality coal that helps to boost up the industrial production of the Korba district.

Comprising mainly of the indigenous tribal population, Dipka is an important industrial and commercial hub of the district of Korba. In the recent years, the state government of Chhattisgarh, headed by the Honorable Mr. Raman Singh has taken several serious steps to upgrade the conditions of the mines of Dipka.

Most of the power generated in the district of Korba can be attributed to the coal mines of Dipka city. The city of Dipka has a rich history which led to the industrial and commercial progress of the region. Originally a backward area, coal production started on a massive scale in the coal mines of Dipka during the fourth five year plan. The dense forests of the city had to be cleared for the extraction and production of coal from the coal mines of Dipka.

Apart from being a significant contributor in the industrial development of the region, the numerous coal mines of Dipka have absorbed majority of the tribal population. This has helped in strengthening the financial condition of the district of Korba.

In a recent meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, the members have agreed for the increasing the size of the coal mines of Dipka to ensure better production at a lesser cost. However, there are many unexplored areas of the city, which if properly utilized will help in the further development of the state of Chhattisgarh.
