Which town?

Hint: The website of Koderma district lists the district (and town) as having a very high literacy rate. Clearly, the folks from this place are men and women of letters.

Didn't know a place called Jhumritalaiyya actually exists outside of Bollywood films :-)
Any idea why and how it got the status of Timbuktu?

As far as I know, the denizens of that city wrote disproportionately into a radio program that broadcast song requests. "such and such a request from Jhumritalaiyya" became a joke because of that.

It was also a center of mica mining.

After being carved out of the original Hazaribag district Koderma came into being in 10th April 1994. Koderma and Jhumri Tilaiya are the only two towns in the district.The five blocks in the district are Koderma, Jainagar, Markacho, Satgawan and Chandwara. Number of Panchyats in the district are 80 and number of villages in the district are 717.Is it enough dude?
