According to the 2011 census, the state has a population of over 32.98 million out of which 26.20 per cent is tribal while 12.08 per cent belong to scheduled caste. Jharkhand has 24 districts, 260 blocks and 32,620 villages out of which only 45 per cent have access to electricity while only 8,484 are connected by roads. Jharkhand is the leading producer of mineral endowed as it is with vast variety of minerals like iron ore, coal, copper ore, mica, bauxite, graphite, limestone, and uranium. Being a tribal dominated state, nature has been given utmost importance in every sphere of life and culture. In Jharkhand, the three tier panchayati raj system was established in 2010.
