Abstract:     The morphological and systematic investigations of plant fossils of Equisetales (Equisetalean axes), Filicales (Neomariopteris), Glossopterids (Glossopteris, Gangamopteris, Palaeovittaria), Euryphyllum, Cordaitales (Pantophyllum=Noeggerathiopsis, Kawizophyllum), detached seeds of Cordaicarpus and Vertebraria axes from different Collieries of Barakar Formation (South Karanpura and Bokaro Coalfields) and from Talchir Formation (Rikba plant bed; North Karanpura Coalfield) have been described. Plant fossils assemblage of present study shows dominance of Glossopteris species (among 32 species 3 are new), one new species of Panfophyllum and two new species of Kawizophyllu.

    As these two coalfields are relatively less important for their coal deposits, not enough attention has been given to palaeobotanical studies of the coal-bearing sediments in these areas. The present study has therefore been undertaken to update the data base on plant megafossils from the Permian sedimentaries associated with coal seams in the Karanpura (North and South) and Bokaro (West) Coalfields.
