  9. Most of the steel plants are located in the Damodar Valley (in Bihar and Bengal) because of the following reasons:
    1. Availability of raw materials for steel plants in the nearby Damodar Valley. All the raw materials required for iron and steel industry like iron ore, coking coal and limestone are available in this area.
    2. Bulky and heavy raw materials exert pressure on steel plants to locate the industry nearby. Because all these things are heavy and bulky so the location of steel plants is governed by the close proximity to raw materials.
