Central Mining Research Institute (CMRI) in Dhanbad is a research laboratory under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research in New Delhi, which is part of the Government of India. This institute has been established to provide scientific and technological inputs to the Indian mining industries for optimization of technologies with respect to safety, economy, conservation, and environmental management in mining sectors. Acute water shortages have developed in recent years in the CMRI campus. Only two tube wells have been drilled at the campus, and these are incapable of providing adequate water supply for research activities and campus residents. Hence, an additional source of groundwater might be needed here to solve the water scarcity problem. To study the groundwater condition in detail and to recommend a new deep tube well, two resistivity imaging surveys were carried out in the CMRI campus along the traverses D1 and D2 as shown in Figure 1.
