About Bihar

Bihar is endowed with a unique location-specific advantage because of its proximity to the vast markets of Eastern and Northern India and Nepal. Bihar, fundamentally an agrarian economy, has a large agricultural and animal production base offering abundant supply of raw material for the food processing industry. Interestingly, Bihar accounts for 90% of the world production of Makhana(Fox Nuts). The State Government has also embarked on an ambitious plan to add substantial electricity generating capacity in the coming years and is targeting to achieve a total generating capacity of 7270 MW by 2021-22.
