Not many people realize that the Jugsalai Municipality is one of the better-planned municipalities in Bihar. It has straight roads and planned storm water drains. Lighting came through a private organization called Rungta Electric Company.
Mr John D'Costa was back from having gotten his engineering degree from Battersea in England and was living with his eminent Builder father in Jugsalai. He had the privilege of making a smooth change to independence for the then-called Jugsalai Notified Area Committee (JNAC). Thanks to his contacts, many distinguished personalities from Jugsalai, where very prominent businessmen lived, and also many famous personalities from the city of Jamshedpur were present to join John Peter D'Costa, Chairman, Jugsalaai Notified Area Committee, to celebrate our first Independence Day.
