New Initiatives and projects in Bihar

As expected the media has come out in full support of the Nitish govt and the one year regime of the present govt continues to hog limelight. However the beyond this political analysis some new stepes have also been taken to attract investment and give momentum to industries in Bihar.

On the first anniversary of the Nitish Kumar government, Bihar’s efforts to chalk out a path of industrial development got twin fillip with the announcement of setting up of Bihar Development and Investment Council (BDIC) and Bihar Foundation. While the first will act as a ‘think-tank’ towards creating an investment climate, the other will bring together — from across the world — prominent people who belong to the state for its development.

Kumar made these announcements after releasing the report card of his year-old government with the slogan: “Development with Justice”. He said the primary goal of his government was to cater to all sections of the society with justice.

He announced the setting up of a Bihar Foundation to involve Biharis settled elsewhere in India or abroad in the state’s development. “The state government is setting up a Bihar Foundation to network with people originally from the state and now settled in different countries. The aim of the foundation would be to provide a platform for these people to begin a lively relation with the state,” Nitish Kumar told reporters while releasing a report card of his government on the completion of one year in office.

To boost tourism government has come up with a host of schemes at the trade fair to attract tourists from within the country and abroad. The plan includes two heritage hotels at Patna, a 18-hole Golf Course at Bodh Gaya, 9-hole Golf Course at Rajgir and an international convention centre at Patna.

Tourism officials at the India International Trade Fair said on Tuesday that tourism is becoming a major industry in Bihar. “The stage is set for a massive growth,” said Bihar’s Resident Commissioner in Delhi C K Mishra. Tourism officials say the international convention centre will be built at an estimated Rs 50 lakh while the amusement park will come up at Rs 1 crore. The two heritage hotels at Rs 4 crore, golf course at Bodh Gaya at Rs 4.2 crore and the golf course at Rajgir at Rs 2.08 crore.
