Per Capita Income of Bihar

Per Capita income of Bihar now stands at Rs 20,069 as per the Minister of State for Planing Ashwani Kumar. Delhi's per capita of Rs 1,35,814 income in reference is almost 7 times that of Bihar.

Ashwani Kumar added that During the first four years of the 11th Plan, "Bihar has registered an annual average per capital income growth rate of 18.4 per cent as compared to the growth rate of Delhi at 14.6 per cent," he said adding the higher growth rate was because of low base effect.

In contrast the per capita income of Bihar stood at Rs. 8,528 in 2004-05. It is significant change from Rs. 8,528 to Rs. 20,069 but there is still a lot of ground to cover.

A lot more investment is required in Bihar and unless investments come both in the Industries sector and the Agricultural sector, this gap will take a very long time to bridge.

More details about Minister of State for Planning, Ashwani Kumar's news can be read in the Economic Times at Delhi's per capita income 7 times more than Bihar's
