In the production of coal West-Bokaro area of Central Coalfields Limited, Ranchi plays a vital role. During the production of coal, it produces huge quantity of suspended particulate matter (SPM), respirable particulate matter (RPM/PM10) as well as gaseous pollutants, like SO2 and NOx, which polluted the area badly. Major portion of the area lies within the mining area wherein most of the industrial and commercial activities exist. The SPM, RPM, SO2 and NOx were measured at various locations of West-Bokaro Coalfields of Hazaribag distric during pre and post monsoon season of the year 2007. The study indicates that SPM and RPM values are well within the prescribed standards in residential sites. However, their concentrations are exceeding the prescribed standards at the working place and the sensitive area, like school and school and dispensary within the study area. The concentration of SO2 and NOx Values are well within the prescribed standards during both the seasons at all the monitoring sties.
