About Dalli-Rajhara
Dalli-Rajhara iron ore mines in Chhattisgarh

The economy of Dalli Rajhara completely relies on iron ore mining business. Most of Dalli Rajhara’s iron ore reserves is controlled by Sail or Steel Authority of India Limited. And therefore it is not at all surprisingly that more than 50% of local labourers here are directly or indirectly employed by Sail Company. Besides SAIL, there are quite a few other private mining companies that are doing their operation here. Although these companies mining operation and scale is not as huge as SAIL, but they are making considerable contribution towards local economy. If we keep aside the mining economy, then rest of Dalli Rajhara’s economy constitutes of small yet productive service sector. Actually decades of steady urbanization paved way for many service sector oriented Institutions in this town. This includes institutions like banks, retail stores, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, self employed professionals etc. Although total employment and revenue generated by all these institutions may look very marginal in comparison to mining industry, but their contribution is still critical for local economy.
