Abstract: The main aim of the study was to find out the critical biodiversity index of different habitats present within the state of Jharkhand and Odisha where Tata Steel Ltd carries out its Mining operations. The study has focused upon the biodiversity results discussion based on different biodiversity sites present within the areas. The positivism philosophy has been used for the conduction of the research. The research has focused on an inductive approach with a descriptive project design. The first-hand data collected by the Researcher has acted as the project outcomes to depict the clear image of the biodiversity within this range. The delineation method has been used to isolate the habitats and conducting the research. The biodiversity indexes found from this research have shown a greater than 1 value in every case. For Joda, Keonjhar, Odisha, it has been 4.5, contradictorily in Deojhar, Keonjhar, Odisha, it is 5.9, showing the high range of Diversity present in the ecologies of these places. The research outcome has also opened a future scope of finding out new unknown species that have been seen within the deep forests of this region. The knowledge about BIRS has been also gained with the help of this study that has focused on finding out the generic tendency of conducting biodiversity index analysis research.
