Economy of Mugma

Local economy of most towns and villages in Dhanbad district is driven by coal mines. And this is most certainly true about Mugma as well, where coal mines are being operated by Eastern Coalfields Limited – a public limited company.

Besides these coal mines, the local service sector plays a very equally important role in generating employment opportunities here.

Talking about agricultural sector, then years of slow urbanization may have taken some sheen from this sector, but it still bears significant influence over the local economy. This may be because of the fact that agriculture is still no 1 occupation in most adjoining villages, which obviously casts indirect influence on Mugma’s economy.

Healthcare Services in Mugma

Mugma’s healthcare services continue to reel under immense infrastructural deficiencies, as even today this town only boosts few well equipped hospitals. The most prominent one amongst these few hospitals is regional hospital operated by Eastern Coalfields Limited, located at GT road. It is a 50 bed hospital and is equipped with all the standard infrastructures. However, this renowned hospital and other few local hospitals alone cannot bear healthcare demands of an entire town. As a result Mugma’s local patients are very much over reliant on many well equipped hospitals operating in Dhanbad city.
All said and done about lack of hospitals, but Mugma at least does not have any shortage of chemist shops and dispensaries. At least it has decent number of them, which are good enough to take care of local healthcare needs.

This is because it does have decent number of infrastructure to take care of its local transportation. Besides, it also has a railway station of its own. Starting first with auto rickshaws, then they are solely responsible for taking care of local transportation here. They are widely available across entire town. Thanks to them local commuters don’t have to worry at all about not reaching any locality or area on time. Mugma Railway Station though a small railway station is directly connected to important cities like Ranchi, Dhanbad Barachak and Asansol. Besides these cities, it is directly connected to many small villages of Dhanbad district.
