List of Mineral Production in India State Wise

Mineral resources in India are unevenly distributed in different regions. The Damodar valley has the largest reserves, while the western part of the peninsular region from Mangalore to Kanpur has lesser reserves. However, the eastern part of this line has substantial deposits of metallic minerals, coal, mica and other non-metallic minerals. Gujarat and Assam are known for their petroleum reserves, while Rajasthan has abundant non-metallic minerals.

States like Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Tripura, Nagaland and West Bengal have limited mineral resources. In contrast, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Meghalaya are rich in minerals. Bihar and Madhya Pradesh are notable producers of metallic and non-metallic minerals as well as coal. Let us now look at the state-wise distribution of mineral production in India.
