Mr. Sushil Kumar Modi, Dy. Chief Minister for Bihar has tabled results of a growth survey. The results indicate the following

Growth Rates

The Net State Domestic Product (NSDP) growth rate is estimated to be 5.57% which is lower than the national average of 6-7 %. However as per the Dy. CM this figure is 5.57% is higher than the average growth Bihar has seen of 3-4%.

As per the survey Bihar stands 28th in the crime chart of the nation.

Industrial front:
No of proposals approved - 164

49 proposals worth 23,000 crores are in advanced stages of implementation.

These and some more statistics have been presented today and more details can be read in the Times of India article "Bihar witnesses impressive growth in three sectors"

I would love to know the methodology of this survey, who were the participants etc as knowing that would give me more confidence about the report.
