India had the fifth-largest global reserves of iron ore in January 2015, at 8.1 billion tonnes (Bnt), accounting for 4.2% of the global total. The majority of this is found in the states of Odisha, Jharkhand and Karnataka.
The iron ore industry was severely impacted by the ban on iron ore mining in Goa and Karnataka. Following the ban, iron ore production in the southern state of Karnataka dropped from 39Mt in 2010 to 13Mt in 2011.
Similarly, iron ore production in Goa decreased by 68.3% to 10.6Mt in 2012. Despite this, India ranked fourth globally in terms of iron ore production after China, Australia and Brazil, accounting for 129.1Mt or 6.3% of global iron ore production in 2014.
