Bihar Progress Report - 2011

Finally I was able to lay my hands on the Bihar Progress Report for 2011.  Was trying to get this from the last 3 months now.

Some of the key things that caught my attention were

  1. Out of School students - The percentage of students who are not attending school dropped from 12% to 3.5%.
  2. Bihar saw the largest increase in literacy rate across India in the last one decade. The literacy rate in general increased by 16.82% whereas the female literacy rate increased by 20.21%
  3. 4712.12 KMs of road were constructed between Nov 2010 and Oct 2011 at a cost of Rs. 3478.81 Crores.
  4. Out of 15 micro hydro power stations (8MW) sanctioned, 7 are generating power and 8 remaining power stations will commence generation shortly.
  5. 30,000 elementary school teachers appointed
  6. 1,384 Ayush doctors appointed on contract at additional PHCs.
  7. 464 senior resident doctors appopinted
  8. 373 specialists doctors appointed.
  9. 154 teachers appointed in engineering colleges and state polytechnics.
  10. Bihar Right to Public Service Act 2011 implemented
  11. Tax revenues in the state was Rs. 9,869.85 Crores
  12. Process initiated to upgrade all PHCs (Primary Health Centers) to 30 bedded health centers.
  13. 4 crore people got treatment at government health facilities in 2010-11. 24 lakh people were admitted to these government health facilities in this year as compared to 7.98 lakh patients in 2007-08.
  14. 5.16 lakh family planning operations were carried out as compared to 1 lakh in 2005.

 The copy of the report that I have got is a smaller version 4" x 6" report in the form of 88 image files. The image files were with small font and will be difficult for many  people to read clearly. However, I have compiled them into a PDF format so that atleast people will be able to read the report as one document.  This report is available at "Bihar Progress Report - 2011".




  2. I am amazingly surprised to read this. I am happy for Bihar Progress.

    I wish if MOU's can be signed for setting up industries in Bihar, it would be great for Bihar Development.

    Hats off to Nitish Kumar and Team
