The district Bhilwara economically depends upon textile industry, insulation bricks and large scale mining of sandstone, soap stone, iron ore and other minerals like feldspar, quartz, China clay, etc., out of which the role of iron ore mine is economically important. In year 2016-17 the Gross district domestic product value is 32361.71 crore rupees in which the contribution of iron ore sale value is 728.65 crore rupees. It is clear that the contribution of iron ore in gross district domestic product is 2.25%. The district has huge deposits of low grade sponge iron ore. M/S Jindal Saw Ltd. with their innovative ideas and international exposure have thought of upgrading iron ore, from 25% Fe to about 65% Fe by way of magnetic separation and other beneficiation methods as the ore is mostly magnetite along with magnetite quartzite. The total mineable reserves of iron ore (Magnetite) in Bhilwara 51.71 million tonnes and the present the rate of production of ROM ore have around 50 lac tonnes per annum but after proposed exploration the proposed rate of production will be around 70 lac tonnes helped 600-900 people employ. A numbers of schools, private as well as Government have run in the district. Market, Carpentry, Blacksmithy and vehicle repair shops have come up giving employment to a large number of persons.
