Top 15 states as per %age per capita income growth 2011-12

Bihar again continues to rank #1 in per capita income percentage growth; the per capita income for Bihar grew at 11.75% in the fiscal 2011-12. This is good news again for Bihar and all Biharis. However, Bihar will have to grow much faster to improve the current per capita income of Rs. 25,653 and bring it to the national average of Rs. 68,747.  Bihar's per capita income is 37% of India's per capita income average and thus there is a lot of ground to cover.

Hence Special Category status is required to accelerate the growth rate of 10-15% in the 11th plan to 20-25% or more. Therefore I support the demand for Special Category Status for Bihar.

I have posted a chart of the Top 15 performing states in the per capita income percentage growth in fiscal year 2011-12 courtesy LiveMint.


  1. No doubt that Bihar is the clear winner here, but whats even more surprising is that even Maharastra and Goa are growing at such a high rate even though they have one of the the highest per capita income in India.

  2. In a country beleaguered with corruption, mis-management, Bihar & its achievements are like a beacon of hope. I am visiting Bihar in Oct. to study as a journalist first hand impression of Bihar & Nitish Kumar's governance.
