Ground movement, a foregone conclusion of underground mining. Will show up in the form of land deformation at the surface. Subsidence studies were conducted by mind tank, Central Institute of Mining and Fuel (Dhanbad), over and around the bord and pillar panel of Jharia Coalfield, Jharkhand to probe into the impacts on land environment. The extraction area has been correlated with the size of the planar and surface subsidence area. The affected area was larger than the extraction area. The change in surface topography will also affect the surface drainage pattern as dealt in this paper.
