Dhanbad the Coal City is in South Bihar about 3 hours from Kolkatta. To reach Dhanbad you can take the Black Diamond Express or the Coalfiedl Express from Kolkatta.
Check any Atlas and you will be able to find the city and the route to reach there. Have a nice stay there - though it is not a pleasant place for touring or sight seeing!
