In 1941, Raurkela (84.846E 22.228N) was a small village located in eastern India, west of Calcutta. It was an ideal location for industrial development, with large iron and coal deposits in the vicinity, but such industrialization did not take place until after the war. However, coal production in the vicinity was near 11 millions tons a year, and iron ore production was close to 1.1 million tons a year.
