Some high level financial statistics for BIhar.

  1. Plan expenditure leapfrogged from Rs. 4000 crore in 2004-05 to Rs. 24,000 crore in 2011-12
  2. Average annual GSDP (Gross State Domestice Product) grew from 4.42% between 1999-2000 and 2004-05 to 11.36% between 2004-05 and 2010-11.
  3. Bihar's GSDP is now larger than that of Punjab
  4. Bihar's per capita income is one-third or the national average and one-seventh of New Delhi
As per some report I had seen though, If Bihar was a country on its own, then the per capita income of Bihar would have been the 3rd lowest in the world... Something still very worrisome and needing to be fixed surely and quickly.


  1. I am not sure how the 3rd lowest has been calculated and speculated. As the Per Capita Income of bihar is lower than that of national average on the other hand India itself has 125th rank internationally. Can you please post the link for the reference, I would like to see that.

    One more thing, thanks for putting such a great informative site, I have been following the bihar growth story and must say its the best resource.
    If you need any help, please let me know, Ill be more than happy.


  2. Hi Nikhil,
    Thanks for the positive feedback. Appreciate it.

    I will have to look up the article, I guess I may the link some place. Usually I put the references in the post; in this one, I missed it. Will look it up shortly and let you know.
