Introduction
Godda nagar panchayat established in 2008. The Godda Nagar Panchayat is situated in the North East of Jharkhand State. Godda is 350 Kms away from Ranchi. It is surrounded by Sahebganj & Pakur district in the East, Bhagalpur district of Bihar State in North & West and Dumka district in the South. It is situated between 240.47' to 250.23' Northern Latitude and between 870.08' to 870.48' Eastern Longitude.

Agriculture is the main economic activity of the nagar panchayat, with the major crops being Paddy, Wheat, Maize, Gram, Green graw, Moong, Sugarcane etc. Inspite of having sufficient cultivable land, the productivity is not up to the mark. The major bottlenecks in the field of agricultural development is lack of inadequate irrigational facilities, small land holding, old techniques of farming and inadequate marketing facilities to the farmers.

Under allied activities fishery and dairy are the two important sectors upon which a large section of the rural people of the nagar panchayat are dependent. In dairy farming, nagar panchayat have a sizable amount of milch animal population. But due to lack of superior variety of milch animals and absence of chilling plants, this sector has not achieved its potential.
