In the federal state of Jharkhand, around 1,200,000 people live in the middle of one of India’s biggest coal mining areas, but most of them do not benefit from the rich coal reserves. India needs to grow faster, hence the huge demand for coals. Mining from this area has to be cheaper to meet growing demands for steel production, which is a thriving industry in the adjacent areas of this region. Not only that, the land is polluted, the soil, the water and the air are now contaminated in an area that was previously rich in woodlands. Now, the owners and residents of this land want what is due to them.
