Overview
Successful development centric initiatives, spate of reformative measures and social group orientation taken at the onset of the 11th Plan have catapulted Bihar in much awaited growth trajectory. New insights and more objectivity in the process of formulation as well as implementation of Annual Plans approved by the Planning Commission, Government of India, right from the first year 2007-08 to third year 2009-10 of 11th Five Year Plan , have brought this State back to the track of accelerating development, affirming that by the end of 11th Plan , Bihar will be able to fulfill the coveted goal of “all inclusive growth at an accelerated pace, accompanied by improved delivery of social services”. Bihar is committed to full employment and poverty alleviation. It will be achieved through significant improvements in literacy/education and health, greater employment opportunities and more focus on timely execution of the schemes pertaining to the various socio-economic groups, in ensuing plan periods .
2. Quality of governance and monitoring of ongoing schemes have enabled to reclaim the lost ground of trust of the public which, in turn have, helped improve governance and accelerate economic growth with social development. Bihar is evolving to embrace new initiatives and social techniques to reach the masses to ensure justice with equality. Bihar had started various new schemes /new interventions like 50% reservation of women in local bodies, telephone based Jaankari Call Centre under RTI, constitution of Special Auxiliary Police(SAP),decision to celebrate the birthday of India‘s first education minister, Mulana Abul Kalam Azad as Shiksha Diwas , constitution of an independent election authority to conduct elections of cooperative institutions (including PACS), skill upgradation and economic empowerment of minority muslim girls through ― Hunar‖ scheme and Mukhyamantri Akshar Anchal Yojana. Such innovative methodologies taken by Bihar in execution of schemes have been emulated by government of India and have also been recommended for adoption to other states,which signifies that at the level of creative thinking and addressing the basic needs of most oppressed and deprived section of society at the level of execution along with differential mechanism of delivery, it is steadily marching ahead on appropriate path to address social services.
3. Keeping the past experiences of formulation and implementation of previous plans in view, Annual Plan 2010-11 has been formulated for optimum utilization of available resources anticipating that the stride of socio-economic development will further be accelerated with adequately increased central assistance in all the priority areas. At this crucial juncture, half way of the 11th Plan period, it reinforces that the ability of a development initiative will successfully achieve its intended goal and extend benefits to the intended beneficiaries. Systematic exploitation of natural resource endowment, rich cultural heritage, young demographic profile and entrepreneurship are the strengths of the state on which it is reckoned that following the directions outlined in the Approach Paper of the 11th Plan along with implementing the programmes and policies in an appropriate perspective, the meticulous and efficient planned effort in rest of the years of 11th plan, will enable the state to achieve the projected level of growth.
4. Planning Commission has identified health, education and infrastructure in reprioritizing the new priority areas. These new priority areas warrant adequate allocation of funds. In response to the advise of Planning Commission, Bihar has also reprioritized the corresponding sectors by substantially enhancing their outlays in comparison to that of previous year. The size of Annual Plan for the year 2010-11 has been approved at ` 20000.00 crore. Out of total plan outlay health has received 1.50 percent, education 12.50 percent and infrastructure 33.00 percent. These priority areas alltogether fetch 47.00 percent of total plan out lay of year 2010-11.Bihar is trying to keep pace with the development of the nation and earnestly hankers to contribute significantly in this process, but it calls for more central assistance in key areas of development .If Bihar will not be able to keep pace of accelerated growth owing to lack of funds; the growth of nation will be pulled down following the law of regression of averages. So this annual plan craves the special attention of Planning Commission towards funding it through Additional Plan Assistance and Special Plan Assistance.

5. State Profile
Location
Bihar is located in the eastern part of the country (between 83°-30' to 88°-00' longitude). It is an entirely land–locked state, although the outlet to the sea through the port of Kolkata is not far away. Bihar lies mid-way between the humid West Bengal in the east and the sub humid Uttar Pradesh in the west which provides it with a transitional position in respect of climate, economy and culture. It is bounded by Nepal in the north and by Jharkhand in the south. The Bihar plain is divided into two unequal halves by the river Ganga which flows through the middle from west to east.
Physical Feature
Latitude 24°-20'-10" ~ 27°-31'-15" N
Longitude 83°-19'-50" ~ 88°-17'-40" E
Rural Area 92,358.40 sq. kms
Urban Area 1,804.60 sq. kms
Total Area 94,163.00 sq. kms
Height above Sea-Level 173 Feet (52.72 cm)
Normal Rainfall 1,176.4 mm
Avg. Number of Rainy Days 53.8 Days in a Year
Natural Resources
Bihar lies in the tropical to sub tropical region. Rainfall here is the most significant factor in determining the nature of vegetation. Bihar has a monsoon climate with an average annual rainfall of 1200 mm.
Forests
The sub Himalayan foothill of Someshwar and Dun ranges in Champaran constitutes another belt of moist deciduous forests. These also consist of scrub, grass and reeds. Here the rainfall is above 1,600 mm and thus promotes luxuriant Sal forests in the favoured areas. The hot and dry summer gives the deciduous forests. The most important trees are Shorea Robusta (Sal), Shisham, Cedrela Toona, Khair, and Semal. This type of forests also occurs in Saharasa and Purnia districts.
Fertile Land
The topography of Bihar can be easily described as a fertile alluvial plain occupying the Gangetic Valley. The plain extends from the foothills of the Himalayas in the north to a few miles south of the river Ganges as it flows through the State from the west to the east. Rich farmland and lush orchards extend throughout the state. Following are the major crops: paddy, wheat, lentils, sugarcane, jute (hemp, related to the marijuana plant, but a source of tough fibers and "gunny bags"). Also, cane grows wild in the marshes of West Champaran. The principal fruits are: mangoes, banana, jack fruit and litchis. This is one of the very few areas outside China which produces litchi.
Water Resources
Water, like ground and mineral resources is of great significance as it provides means of drinking water for man and animals, irrigation for agriculture, industrial uses, production of hydro-electricity, transportation and recreation etc. The importance of water is so immense that the people in ancient times worshipped it .Bihar is richly endowed with water resources, both the ground water resource and the surface water resource. Not only by rainfall but it has considerable water supply from the rivers which flow within the territory of the State. Ganga is the main river which is joined by tributaries with their sources in the Himalayas. Some of them are Saryu (Ghaghra), Gandak, Budhi Gandak, Bagmati, Kamla-Balan and Mahananda.There are some other rivers that start from the plateau area and meet in Ganges or its associate rivers after flowing towards north. Some of them are Sone, Uttari Koyal, Punpun, Panchane and Karmnasha. There are several rivers in Bihar which
7
contribute a lot to the peoples of Bihar. These rivers make the water available for irrigation purpose and also help in generating the hydro-thermal energy for the state. Apart from this they provide a medium for water transport, provide fishes for fishery industry and enrich the natural resources of state in many other ways.All the above rivers have their impact on the Bihar plain. State also has non-exhaustible source of ground water which is in use for drinking purposes, irrigation and industries.
6. Economy of Bihar
There was a division of Bihar in 2000 when the industrially advanced and mineral rich southern half of the state was carved out to form the separate state of Jharkhand. The reorganized State has an area of 94,163 sq. km. and a population of 82.998 million according to the 2001 Census. The population of the State constitutes 8.07 percent of the country with about 3 percent of the area thereof. The adverse land-man ratio is reflected in the high density of population, which is 880 per sq.km. The decadal growth of population for 1991-2001 has been 28.43% which is highest in the country. The literacy rate in the state is 47% according to 2001 census as against 38.50% in 1991.
After bifurcation the main economic activity of Bihar has been agriculture. The vast track of the extremely fertile land makes this easy. Bihar now mainly grows crops like paddy, wheat, lentils, sugarcane and jute. Fruits grown here include mangoes, bananas, jackfruit and litchis. The forests of Bihar yield valuable commercial products beside timber. While cane for weaving is found easily in swamps of West Champaran district the Bhagalpur region in the east produces ‗tussar‘, a distinct quality of silk and high quality jute is produced in the Kosi region. These are transported to factories located near Kolkata for easy export of the finished material.
Bihar has many industries associated with agricultural products. Besides sugar factories scattered throughout the area there are also a number of rice and edible oil mills located here. After independence a huge industrial complex grew around Barauni with industrial plants like a fertilizer factory, petroleum refinery and thermal power station. The huge annual cattle fair at Sonepur in the Saran district is also an important spot for trade. This begins from the Purnima (Full Moon day) of the month of Kartik along with major religious festivals like Dussehra, Deepwali and Chhath. A huge fair is held for the trading of animals attracting a large number of people not only from Bihar but also from other parts of India and abroad.

8. Structure of the Economy
The economy of Bihar has experienced little structural changes over the years and is not well diversified. It is a predominantly agrarian economy with a small manufacturing base. While the share of agriculture has declined, it is still very large. Manufacturing accounts for only 6.97 per cent of the GSDP in 2006-07. The share of the primary sector has declined from 50.6 per cent in 1990-91 to 30.4 per cent in 2006-07. The bifurcation of the State in 2000 with its manufacturing base going over to Jharkhand, had an adverse
9
impact on the structure of the economy. The contribution of the Secondary sector, which was 20.98 per cent in 1990-91, fell to 14.62 per cent in 2006-07 which is almost half of the National average. The tertiary sector has grown disproportionately and without a concomitant growth in the Secondary sector. Its contribution to the GSDP rose to 55 percent in 2006-07 from 51 per cent in 2000-01.
9. Growth Potential
The low growth of GSDP of Bihar can be attributed to the low accumulation of physical capital and lack of efficiency in the use of capital. From 1999-2000 to 2003-04 the investment rate has been around 27 per cent for the country, against which Bihar‘s average rate of investment was abysmally low at 15 per cent of GSDP. An accelerated rate of investment is necessary to maintain the accelerated growth rate of GSDP. In the Eleventh Plan, a target rate of growth of GSDP of 8.5 per cent has been postulated for Bihar which requires the investment rate to be stepped up to 23.65 per cent of the GSDP.
In the background of a low rate of growth of GSDP, a high postulated rate of growth is feasible if concerted efforts are made to make efficient use of existing potential and to tap hitherto unused potential, particularly, in the primary sector. There is enough evidence to believe that a large stock of existing capital assets in publicly funded infrastructure like power, roads and irrigation have been lying idle for years. Priority will be given to completing and upgrading such projects as this would be more cost-effective than undertaking new projects. For achieving a higher rate of growth, the private sector will have to play a much bigger role for which an investment-friendly climate is being created. Further, direct investment by the Central Government in strategic areas such as power, flood control, construction of roads and bridges etc. will further increase the attractiveness of Bihar as an investment destination.
The sectoral growth rates consistent with an 8.5 per cent rate of growth of GSDP have been projected at 5 per cent for Agriculture, 11 per cent for Industry and 10 per cent for Services. Agriculture has shown a decelerating trend after the 90‘s. The average annual rate of growth of Agriculture in the Tenth Plan was less than 2 per cent. The deceleration in Agriculture has been mainly due to supply side constraints like irrigation, power supply, seeds, fertilizer use, mechanisation etc. along with certain institutional factors. The Eleventh Plan starting with 2007-08 has endeavoured to remove these supply side constraints and also to create adequate demand for agricultural products by increasing the real income of the rural and the urban poor and by setting up agro-based industries. Security of tenure of small, marginal and landless labourers will be ensured by effective implementation of land reforms. The rate of growth of Industry during the Tenth Plan has been of the order of 9.80 per cent. With proper infrastructural development and implementation of the new industrial policy, increased private investment in the Industry sector is expected. Services sector which has shown a rate of growth of 11.35 per cent will get an automatic boost.
10. Trajectory of Development Scaled

1.2 SECONDRY EDUCATION
The Secondary level education provides an important link between the elementary and higher education. It also serves as training ground for workforce. Senior secondary stage or Intermediate stage is very important for skill development, because at this stage, diversification of curriculum and selection of professional streams by students occur.
The success of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan will mean that Secondary Education during the next few years would face simultaneously strong pool for quantitative expansion and qualitative improvement. The enrollment rate will increase and dropout rate will decrease. This would create great demand for infrastructure facilities for secondary education. Due to global competitiveness, industry, business and service sectors will demand for higher quality of manpower. Secondary education is the single largest supplier of workforce in the country.

WOMEN COMPONENT PLAN
Gender responsive budgets have emerged as an important and widespread strategy for scrutinizing government expenditure for assessing its contribution to gender equality and impact on the quality of life specially of most vulnerable and disadvantaged groups of women. variety of tools and processes are used for this purpose
In the Indian context, the commitment to gender equity is well entrenched at the highest policy making level - the Constitution of India. Apart from this, the National Policy for Empowerment of Women 2001 envisaged introduction of a gender perspective in the budgeting process as an operational strategy. These provisions are effected and supplemented by legal framework by way of women specific legislations like Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, 1956, the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961, the Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961, Equal Remuneration Act, 1976, relevant provisions of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, Special provisions under IPC, the PCPNDT Act, 1994 and the most recent Domestic Violence Act, 2005.
In addition, the plan documents have over the years reflected the evolving trends in gender matters. Formal earmarking of funds for women began with the Women‘s Component Plan. The Ninth Plan adopted the ‗Women‘s Component Plan‘ as one of the major strategies and directed both the Central and State Governments to ensure ―not less than 30 percent of the funds/benefits are earmarked in all the
68
women‘s related sectors. The Tenth Plan reinforced commitment to gender budgeting to establish its gender-differential impact and to translate gender commitments into budgetary commitments.
The government of Bihar has displayed its concern for political empowerment of women in the state by announcing reservation of 50% seats for women at the panchayat level. The state has also introduced Gender Budgeting in the 2009-10 Budget and proposes to earmark atleast 30% percent of the budgetary allocation in important sectors like Education, Health, Rural Development, Welfare, Social Welfare, Minority Welfare and Urban Development for the welfare of women and girl child. A lot of schemes/programmes are being implemented for social, economic & cultural empowerment of women.
With a view to further strenghthening on going initiatives towards gender equity, The department of Social Welfare will organize seminars/workshops/training of all departments officers wherein the concept of GRB along with the various options available before the state government will be discussed and suitable strategy will be evolved so that full realization of protection and promotion of women rights are ensured.

2. Labour Resources
Department of Labour Resources has been mandated to perform the task relating to maintenance of industrial peace and labour welfare including enforcement of labour laws, skill up gradation of the youth with a view to increase their employability in the labour market, establishing linkages between the employable and the job market through the mechanism of Employment Exchanges, and taking care of the medical needs of the Insured Persons (IPs) and their families under the ESI Act. However, a paradigm shift has taken place in the approach to be followed in performing the aforesaid mandate since early nineties. The role labour laws play has been perceived differently by different social stakeholders, notably, the employers and employees. With the advent of new economic policy in the early 90's and policies of carrying out reforms in every sector of India's economy, the perceptions have converged at least to one realization that labour laws needs be simplified to spur growth and generate employment rather than merely protecting the well-entrenched interests of the workers engaged in the organized sector, and issues confronting the vulnerable sections of the labour be addressed through effective implementation of labour laws and focused welfare policies; a realization has dawned upon all the stakeholders that most vulnerable sections of the labour resources, e.g., child labour, women, bonded labour, migrant labour and vast mass of labour working in the unorganized of informal sector need special attention.
Labour Wing
(1) Organization of Training Camps for Rural and Unorganized Workers
The workers of rural areas and unorganized sector remain ignorant about their legal rights under various labour laws and unaware about the rates of minimum wages fixed by the Government due to illiteracy and other reasons. It makes them to be devoid of the due benefits which are available to them under the laws. Hence, there is a need to train and empower these workers in a concerted way by organizing special camps.
It is planned to organize training camps for rural workers at district level for all the 38 districts participated by workers drawn from every panchayat of that district. While selecting the participant workers for the training camps, preference would be given to the women/SC/ST workers. Currently we have 8463 panchayats in the State, hence it is planned to train these number of workers in a year.
(2) Survey, Release and Rehabilitation of Child Labour
In accordance with the Order passed by the Hon‘ble Supreme Court on 10.12.96 in M.C. Mehta vs State of Tamil Nadu and others, release and rehabilitation of child labour is a mandatory task for the State Government which involves regular survey to identify the children engaged in work, enforcement of laws to release them from work and rehabilitation of the children so released.
The Court has ordered that the State Government should provide employment to one adult member of the family of the child labour released; if not possible, an amount of Rs 5,000/ per child has to be deposited in a specially created Fund. Accordingly, a Child Labour Rehabilitation-cum-Welfare Fund has been created in every district.
A child labour cell has been constituted at the State level to coordinate the activities concerning child labour in the State. It is proposed to provide transport on outsourcing basis for the flying squads constituted in districts to enforce the law. It is also proposed to provide food/medicine/clothing to the children at the time of their release and ration for 30 days. Since survey of the child labour is underway, it is felt that there is no need to undertake fresh survey in 2010-11.
(3) Organization of Bihar State Child Labour Commission
To advise the State Govt. for prevention, welfare and rehabilitation of Child Labour, a Bihar State Child Labour Commission was established in the year 1999-2000 in the State. The Commission was
73
reconstituted in the year 2003-04 and again in March, 2007. The tenure of the chairperson/Dy Chairperson and members of the Commission is three years.
(4) Bonded Labour Rehabilitation Programme
The Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, 1976 is in operation in the State since 1976. The Bonded Labour Rehabilitation Progamme is a centrally sponsored programme under which an amount of Rs 20,000/ rupees is provided by the Government of India and the State Government in the ratio of 50:50 to rehabilitate one bonded labour.

Employment wing
In the financial year 2010-11, being the fourth financial year of Eleventh five year plan, special measures are being proposed to be undertaken in order to expand the area of the Employment Service to the remotest part of the state benefiting the unemployed rural youth. The impartiality and transparency of the working of Employment Exchanges is the special area of attention. For the purpose, complete computerization of the Employment Service and its availability on the Website has been made the cardinal point of Annual Plan during the fiscal year. For the benefit of the unemployed, special efforts are proposed to be undertaken for their employment in other states and overseas. As such, six Schemes are being proposed to be undertaken, which are detailed below: -
(1) Expansion and Strengthening of Employment Service
The globalization of economy brought the fruit of creation of many fold job opportunities especially in the unorganized sector. In order to distribute the profit evenly, necessary information regarding the job opportunities with their specification must be imparted to the unemployed youths, especially to the rural unemployed in the remotest area of the states. For the purpose the career counseling and promotion of self employment programmes must be carried out even in the remotest undeveloped districts of the state. This necessitates the expansion of the network of employment exchange vis a vis Vocational guidance.
For the purpose ten districts viz Kishanganj, Araria, Kaimur (Bhabhua), Supaul, Sheikhpura, Sheohar, Lakhisarai, Jamui, Arwal & Banka have been provided with career information centers in the fiscal 2008-09. Likewise, University Information and Guidance Centres have been provided at three newly created Universities, namely, Dr. Rajendra Prasad University, Chapra, Veer Kunwar Singh University, Arrah and B. P. Mandal University, Madhepura. In addition, career information is being provided to the unemployed in the other Employment offices.
It is proposed to strengthen these 13 centres by providing computers/ photocopiers/ stationeries/ furnitures/equipments etc. In addition, 34 such centres functional since before would also be provided with photocopier
(2) E-Processes in Employment Service Operation
In order to achieve the target of complete computerization of Employment Exchanges and to provide Employment Service electronically at the door of unemployed as well as Employer, the live Register of Employment Exchanges has to be digitized. The digitization work is a continuing process because new data get generated. Hence, to complete the remaining part of the work and for automating the employment service operation
(3) Strengthening of Vocational Guidance Programme
Under the scheme, following four projects are proposed to be undertaken in the financial year 2010-11 with a total outlay of Rs 29.00 lakh under the State plan:
(a) Considering the importance of present vocational guidance programme implemented through the 46 Career Information Centres established at the Employment Exchanges and U.E.I &G.Bs, it is proposed to grant extension to these centres during the year 2010-11
75
(b) Employment/Career counseling to the job/career seekers has become the main thrust in the 11th five year plan under Vocation Guidance programme. In the present economic scenario, skill development has become the criteria to obtain a job rather than educational development. In order to emphasize upon the new development in the thinking of Employer and in order to find ways for skill development, Employment Exchanges should be developed as the career counseller. For the purpose, career melas/employment melas are proposed to be organized once in a year at divisional level
(c) Likewise, seminar/conference/ career mela/ employment melas is proposed to be organized at the State Level for the coverage of wider range of career scopes, field employments where invited every faculty should be invited to present full text of the course in the present Employment Market to the career/ job seekers and employers would select eligible job-seekers.
(d) For the successful implementation of Vocational Guidance Programme it is equally important to impart training to the Employment Officers to make them updated with the various career counseling works in each subject. The Training programme would be on regular basis.
(4) Survey, study, Evaluation, Research and documentation & E.M.I. Promotion
(a) Due to globalization of economy, the boundary of the Employment Market has crossed that of the state and even the nation. For achieving the target of the maximum placement of the unemployed youth in the overseas market, an Overseas Placement Bureau is being established in the Directorate. For this purpose an outlay of Rs 5.00 lakh is earmarked under the State Plan for the financial year 2009-10.
(b) The Disability Act, 1995 provides for key role to the Employment Exchanges for employment of persons with disability (PwD) in Government and private sector. Hence, it seems essential to conduct a study to understand the status of employment of PwDs in various sectors as well as the qualifications prescribed for such employments. For this purpose, an outlay of Rs 3.00 lakh in the year 2009-2010 is being proposed.
(5) Scheme for Development of Weaker Section
In order to increase the employability of the unemployed youth belonging to the weaker sections of society, special efforts are needed at the Employment Exchange level. For this purpose, assistance for skill development to the unemployed youths of Minorities and Women has to be provided. It is also essential to provide assistance to the persons with disability to get employment
.
(a) All employment exchanges will organize Evaluation-cum-public information camps in rural and urban areas in collaboration with civil society organizations and govt. agencies to reach the services offered by the exchanges to those among weaker section who can not avail the services due to various reasons. During the camp suitable guidance and encouragement would be provided to the eligible categories.
(b) Selective placement activities would be made effective for all the three categories of physically challenged people vis-à-vis availability of Employment Opportunity/ vacancies reserved for physically handicapped category of applicants.
In addition, special days i.e. white stick day and handicapped day etc. would be celebrated at all the districts to spread the awareness in the light of The Disabilities Act, 1995.
(6) Construction of Building for Employment Exchange
To host a large gathering of unemployed youths in the premises of Employment Exchanges for Career counseling/Career talks/Registration/ Guidance/ Vocational Guidance etc, infrastructure is needed. In the financial year 2008-09, construction of the building for Sub Regional Employment Exchange, Bhagalpur was sanctioned. To take this initiative forward in the year 2009-2010, construction of another sub-regional employment exchange and to addition of a floor to the sub-regional employment exchange, Patna was taken up.
76
Centrally Sponsored Scheme
Skill Development Programme for Potential Emigrant Workers
A large number of Indian workers immigrate to other countries for overseas employment. With the globalization of economy and ageing of population in the developed countries, ever increasing job opportunities are emerging in the overseas employment market for India which with a large and young skilled population is well placed to reap the demographic dividends of the scenario. This demands that a large number of potential immigrants should be continuously imparted skilled up- gradation training before their departure. They should also be made aware of various emigration laws, cultural etiquettes and values, human behavior and normal rules of the Country they intend to migrate for employment. The Central government has a scheme to provide a grant of Rs 5000 per person for such training to the State Government.
Training Wing
With a view to ensure a steady flow of skilled workers in different trades for the domestic industry and to train educated youth for self-employment, the Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) were established in the country in the year 1950.Currently, there are 38 ITIs in Bihar including 8 Women ITIs. Out of these 38 ITIs, 9 have been established in 2008-09 fiscal. Industrial training in various long and short-term trades is imparted in these ITIs which include theoretical papers as well as practical.
Though Bihar has 38 districts, not all are covered with ITIs; only 31 districts are covered leaving 7 districts where such institutes would be established in the 11th plan period. These ITIs have capacity to train above 12,000 youth in long term trades and above 3000 youths in short term trades. Another 5000 youths can be trained through private ITIs called Industrial Training Centres (ITCs). With the growing GDP, Bihar needs a large number of skill development facilities to churn out trained manpower in sufficient number to meet the burgeoning demand in the domestic market and reap the benefit of growth. Hence, it has been proposed to take a quantum jump by opening new ITIs in the State during the 11th Five Year Plan. It has been proposed to open ITIs in all uncovered districts, open women ITIs in all uncovered divisions and introduce newer trades as per the requirements of the market. In addition, it has also been proposed to upgrade and meet the deficit in the existing facilities.
The details of the proposals for the year 2010-11are given below:
(1) Construction and purchase of Buildings for I.T.Is
It is proposed to construct/complete the construction of/repair/renovate the administrative building, workshop, boundary wall & hostels of the ITIs established in the State including the newly established ones and women ITIs. In addition, a MoA has been signed with the BIT Mesra (Ranchi) for upgradation of ITI Dighaghat, Patna under a PPP model of the State Government. Under the terms of the MoA, fund would be required to complete some of the incomplete structures, for campus development and establishment of a resource centre. It is also proposed to purchase the land and buildings of the KVIC, Mumbai located in Saharsa for the newly established ITI in Saharsa for which fund would be required.
(2) Introduction of New Trade in Women I.T.Is
Keeping in view the emerging demands in the market, it is proposed to establish new trades in the women it is. New trades would be introduced based on market demand and suggestion of the Institute Managing Committee in the 10 women ITIs.
(3) Up gradation of I.T.Is
This scheme is a centrally sponsored scheme to develop selected ITIs into Centres of Excellance during the 11th plan; the expenditure has to be met in the ratio of 75: 25 by the Central and State
77
Governments. The Central Government has intimated to the State Governments that it has two sources of funding for the scheme, the domestic funding and World Bank funding. Under domestic funding 2 ITIs, namely, Dighaghat, Patna and Nawada were selected whereas 8 ITIs (ITIs of Muzaffarpur, Bhagalpur, Darbhanga, Gaya, Motihari, Katihar, Sitamarhi and Forbesganj) have been identified under World Bank funding so far.
(4) Establishment of New I.T.Is
There are 45 ITIs in the State including 10 women ITIs which are located in 31 districts, leaving 7 districts with no ITI. With a view to ensure that the benefits of double digit growth reach in Bihar, there is a need to strengthen and broaden the supply side intervention relating to skilled manpower. Thus, it has been proposed to cover all the districts with new green field ITIs during the 11th plan period. It is proposed to open 2 new ITIs during the year 2010-11 and give extension to new ITIs opened under the State Plan, including those opened in the year 2009-10.
(5) Establishment of New Women I.T.Is
With a view to facilitate women taking admission in the ITIs, it has been proposed to open new women ITIs in all divisional headquarters during the 11th plan period. Currently, 7 divisional headquarters out of 9 have been covered. In the last two years 3 new women ITIs were opened.
(6) Capacity Building
With a view to update the professional knowledge of instructional staff and officer's of working in the private as well as Government I.T.Is, it is necessary to undertake their capacity building on continuous basis. In addition, Government has signed a MOU with IGNOU where 400 training centers would be opened for training Govt servants, youths etc.
(7) Management Information System
In the present era of information and technology, it is essential to bring e-solutions and connectivity in the execution and monitoring of admissions, training, examination, examination results and distribution of certificates pertaining to the ITIs. Likewise, in view of the market demand, it is imperative to impart computer training to the students enrolled in the industrial training institutes. BELTRON has been engaged on BOOT basis to make arrangements for imparting computer training to the students.
(8) Study and Research
With a view to map the demand of skilled manpower in the domestic, national and international markets in the context of globalization and accompanying growth, there would be need of conducting studies and research to identify trades for long and short- term courses which may be introduced in the ITIs. A demand mapping studies has been commissioned in the year 2009-10 at estimated cost of Rs 10 lakh.
(9) Land Acquisition for ITIs
For those Industrial Training Institutes with no land and building of their own, an outlay of Rs 200 lakh is proposed for land acquisition in the year 2009-10.
(10) Modernization of the machines and equipments in the Industrial Training Institutes
With a view to install new machines and equipments for introducing new/popular trades in the industrial training institutes and replace/renovate/modernize old machines and equipments,

3.2 PANCHAYATI RAJ
The Bihar Panchayat Raj Act, 2006 was enacted by replacing and repealing the Bihar Panchayat Raj Act, 1993. As per the provision of the Act, the election to the three-tier Panchayats was held in May- June, 2006 and currently 38 Zila Parishads, 531 Panchayat Samities, 8463 Gram Panchayats and 8463 Gram Kachhary are in existence.
The functions of Panchayats are wide-ranging as a result of the devolution of functions from various departments and include amongst others like Agriculture, Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, and Social forestry, Khadi & Village Industries, Rural Housing, Drinking Water, Roads, Education, Health, Poverty Alleviation Programmes, Social Welfare, Public Distribution System, Women and Child Development etc.
In light of the Panchayat Raj Institutions being entrusted with various functions and responsibilities they would require adequate financial assistance to perform in conformity. In changing scenario of globalisation, there is an increasing role of PRIs vis-a-vis the implementation of developmental schemes at the level of the Panchayats.
At present the Gram Kachharies do not have proper infrastructure facilities as a result of which they are not functioning smoothly. A considerable amount of financial assistance would be required to provide them with the requisite facilities.
Annual Plan 2010-11
The present objective of the Annual Plan-2010-11 is to enable Panchayats to undertake planning and implement development schemes, promote community life and generate employment opportunities.
Since the PRIs have an important role to play in the democratic functioning, framing of development schemes and their implementation, it is necessary to provide adequate resources to the PRIs to discharge their duties in conformity with their constitutional mandate.

In the current year, some construction works are being done to make these farms capable of producing 4 lakhs chicks every year, as targeted in the Road Map. Next year, funds would be required to complete the scheme.
Under this scheme, control containment and culling of birds, affected with Bird Flue is the main objective. Containment of the Bird flue is done by continuous routine surveillance of the disease in various districts of the state.

5.4 Sugarcane Industry
Production and productivity of sugarcane in Bihar is low as compared to the national average. Therefore, a second Green Revaluation is urgently needed in general, and in the sugarcane sector in particular to raise the growth rate of agricultural GDP to around 4%. In 10th five year plan period attention was given for the betterment of agro-based industries, and, thereby creation of more employment opportunities, particularly in the rural areas with a view to eradicate poverty. However the growth rate has remained lethargic in this sector. The challenge posed is to at least double the rate of agricultural growth.
2. The State Government has announced a new Sugar policy in Bihar providing an attractive incentive package to meet the above challenge. As a result, the existing private sugar mills are expanding their crushing capacities, and several sugar mills have submitted Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) for setting up new sugar complexes. To meet this increased demand of sugarcane, area under cane cultivation will naturally increase. Consequently it is hoped that the productivity will be increased from the present level of 46.10 tones per ha. to at least the national average of 70 tones per ha.
3. Sugarcane Development Schemes
Centrally Sponsored Schemes
1. Field Demonstration
These demonstrations will be done by the State Cane Development Department in the farmer‘s field, where assistance of Rs. 7500 per demonstration will be given for the use of inputs required to demonstrate the technology. The size of demonstration will be half a hectare.
2. Farmer’s Training

Incentive at the rate of 25% (maximum Rs. 2500 per unit) is proposed for purchase of improved Sugarcane agricultural implements.
5. Foundation Seed Nursery
Foundation seed of sugarcane will be raised by the sugar factories on their own farm land and in the field of progressive sugarcane growers. Foundation seed multiplication programme will be supervised by scientists of SRI, Pusa/ K.V. Ks and officials of the Cane Department. A sum of Rs. 40 lakhs will be needed for a 1000 ha. Nursery (@ 10% cost limited to 4000/ha. annually.
6. Certified Seed Nursery (Primary Seed Nursery)
Farmers will be provided Rs. 2000 per ha. or 10% of the cost of cultivation per ha. (Whichever is less) for raising certified seed nursery. Target of 3500 ha. Annually is proposed for the same.

109
8. Tissue Culture Lab
To get genetically pure and quick multiplication of seeds, tissue culture laboratories are proposed to be established in each sugar mill/ research institute at the rate of Rs. 10 lakh per tissue culture.
9. Transfer of Technology
To make aware the cane growers of the improved technology as well as to acquire practical experiences in recently developed methodology of cane production, it is imperative for the cane growers to visit the cane growing states of the country and also to Sugarcane Research Institutes. Besides, seminars, exhibitions, etc, are also suitable instruments. To meet these objectives it has been planned to arrange tours of the cane growers to the various states of the country and to create extension media like seminars, melas, exhibitions, preparation of vidio films, electronic media, printing of literature etc.
10. Contingency
For effective implementation of programmes, proper monitoring of the schemes, mobility of the field staff for field visit and miscellaneous expenses, provisions are made.
11. Assistance for Distribution of Micronutrient
Cane growers generally do not use balance dose of fertilizers. Soils of Bihar are also deficient in micronutrient like, Zinc Sulphate etc. which ultimately result in lower production of Sugarcane. To upgrade the awareness and use of micronutrient among the farmers, it is proposed to provide micronutrient to the farmers on subsidized rate which will ultimately help in enhancing sugarcane production.
12. Distribution of Planting Material & Soil Treatment Chemicals
Use of plant protection chemical is must for sugarcane cultivation to obtain higher productivity and production.
13. State Level Training
To update knowledge base of Sugarcane Department Officials, ten State level training is proposed @ twenty thousand per training programme.

5.5 Co -operation
In the National Policy on Agriculture top priority has been accorded to Agriculture & Rural development. Emphasis has been laid on enhancing the flow of resources to agriculture sector, both from public as well as private sources. In order to increase agricultural productivity and ensure qualitative improvement in the life of farmers Poverty alleviation programmes are proposed to be strengthened by increasing credit flow to the rural areas and strengthening the rural infrastructure.
2. Cooperative movement aims at all round economic and social development of small and marginal farmers, artisans and other poorer and weaker sections of the society through cooperation. Bihar is a predominantly agricultural state with over 80 percent of the population living in villages and dependent on agriculture. The credit requirement of this segment of the society has remained largely outside the operation of the commercial banks and even of regional rural banks. Self sufficiency in food production, rather food security, as the larger goal cannot be achieved unless the credit requirements of the farmers are fulfilled.
Annual Plan 2010-11 Objectives
3. Emphasis will be made to strengthen the grass root level primary societies by providing them financial assistance and trained managerial staff. Apart from this infrastructural facilities of the societies will be improved so as to enable them to function as the delivery agency. Besides this, efforts will be made to ameliorate the socio-economic condition of the scheduled caste and backward class including minority class of society by providing adequate financial assistance under scheduled caste Sub Plan and backward component plan.

6.1 Water Resources
Water resources sector is most vital for the development of Bihar. Rivers namely the Kosi, the Gandak, the Bagmati and the Kamla originating in the hills of Himalayas and come through Nepal making them international rivers. Suitable reservoir sites on these rivers are available only in Nepal. About 85% area of the catchment of these rivers lies outside the state. Therefore, viable water management scheme in the state alone will not be of help in the long run unless efforts are made to device effective system of water management in Nepal region also. It may need approval of other states and central government and will take time. Under the new approach it is envisaged that:-
 Excess water from a particular basin be diverted to water deficit basin or less developed basin, and
 Instead of taking up construction of dam, barrage or weir on a particular river, a holistic approach be undertaken and in that particular basin all aspects related to water management viz, irrigation, flood moderation, construction of embankments, their black topping etc be taken up in such a manner that optimal benefit by dovetailing of all the individual components can be derived.
The Water Resources Department, Government of Bihar has identified 6 nos. of intra-linking of river basin schemes purely within its territory, namely;
(a) Dhanarjay reservoir Phulwaria reservoir link;
(b) provision of second barrage on river Sone at Arwal to augment water availability in Sone canal system with transfer of water to Punpun-Harohar-Kiul basin;
(c) Baksoti barrage scheme on river Sakri and conversion of Nata Weir to a barrage on river Nata in Nawada district with suitable link from Sakri river to Nata river from Baksoti barrage site.
(d) Mokama Tal Drainage Scheme;
(e) Development of Bagmati irrigation & Drainage project-Phase-I (Barrage near Nepal border at Dheng) (f) Augmentation of water availability in the existing Gandak Canal System through transfer of water from Burhi-Gandak, Baya and from Gandak by construction of a second barrage near Areraj on it under Gandak project phase-2. It has been observed that basins located in North Bihar, if developed and managed properly, will yield flood moderation benefits to the north and those in South Bihar would have irrigation benefits. The department intends to integrate various components of water resources within basin, interlinking of the rivers and connecting it with the traditional sources of irrigation, thereby increase storage of water.
Sectoral Break-up of Outlay
Annual Plan 2010-11 has been formulated for the four sectors of Water Resources Department. The sectoral break-up of outlay for these four sectors for the financial year 2010-11 is as below:-

6.3 Disaster Management
Bihar happens to be one of the most disaster prone States of India. Year after year her vast land is devastated by recurrent floods. Any rainfall occurring in Tibet and Nepal directly affects the flow in river systems of north Bihar. Flooding of these areas is a recurrent phenomena and account for 17% of the flood prone area of the country. Due to cyclonical and climatological factors, flood related problems not only affect the north Bihar areas alone, it also affects large tracts of south Bihar as well. This recurrent problem of flooding causes loss of lives, damage to crops, disruption of connectivity and communication systems, demolition and damage to dwellings and retardation of the economic development and well being of the people.
In addition to the scourge of floods, Bihar is also prone to drought; once in 4-5 years it receives scanty rainfall and suffers from drought, sometimes severe. The south Bihar districts in particular because of geographical factors are more prone to drought and suffer more due to the scanty rainfall which causes crisis related to food, fodder and drinking water. In the year 2009-10, drought was declared in 26 districts of Bihar in which almost all districts falling south of Ganges are included.
Bihar is also an earthquake prone State; 8 districts ( all located in north Bihar) fall in zone 5, 21 districts ( located in north and south Bihar both) fall in zone 4 and all remaining fall in zone 3. Experience suggests that at several occasions, floods have been followed by earthquakes causing more miseries to the people.
Fire is also a cause of misery for Bihar; during summer season large number of houses, mostly huts are gutted in fire. The main reason behind losses due to fire is the people, in particular people in the north Bihar, and live in houses built with grass, bamboo, mud and naria tiles which are easily combustible.
Annual Plan 2010-11: Objectives
In view of the recurrent nature of the natural disasters as above, it is no longer desirable for the Government to wait for the disaster to strike and then distribute relief. The concept of disaster management has undergone a paradigm shift; the new concept is prevention, preparedness, reduction or mitigation, quick response, rescue, relief and reconstruction. If a proper warning system is set up, capacity of stakeholders is built, standard operating procedures and plan is put in place, rescue and relief infrastructure is kept ready, the number of lives lost and damage to assets and infrastructure in disasters can be prevented and mitigated to a large extent.
Annual Plan: 2010-11
1. Procurement of Motor Boats etc in the Flood Prone Districts: For the purpose of rescue and relief work during floods, provision for procurement of motor boats and other accessories in 15 districts were made in the annual plan of 2009-10. Since there are 28 flood prone districts in Bihar, it is proposed to procure motor boats and other accessories for the remaining 13 districts and meet the remaining liabilities in respect of 15 districts as stated aforesaid in FY-2010-11
2. Establishment of State Disaster Response Force: With a view to strengthen response mechanism and mitigate impact of natural disasters provision was made in the annual plan 2009-10 to establish a State Disaster Response Force (SDRF); a force with dedicated, well equipped and trained manpower raised on the pattern of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF).
3. Construction of Ware Houses: construction of warehouses in flood prone districts to store the relief and rescue materials safely and securely which could be used at the time of disaster.
123
4. Establishment of Emergency Operation Centres: Out of 28 floods prone districts Emergency Operation Centres (EOC) are being set up In 14 districts under UNDP and 8 under State plan. In remaining 6 flood prone districts such centres are being set up for effective coordination of rescue and relief works.
5. Procurement of Life Jacket: A provision was made to procure life jackets @100 per district for 22 districts last year. It is proposed to procure life jackets for remaining 6 flood prone districts @ 100 per district.
6.
7. Procurement and Maintenance of Communication Equipments: In the plan of last year provision was made to provide satellite phones to 22 flood prone districts. There is need to provide such phones to some other districts and keep some at the headquarters. The maintenance and call charges have also to be paid.
8. Establishing Early Disaster Warning System: To alert the population likely to be affected by disaster much in advance so as to enable them to take steps for their safety.
9. Capacity Building of Stake holders for Disaster Reduction: For disaster reduction, it is imperative that capacity of the officials engaged in disaster proofing and management including engineers and architects, community, boatmen and other stakeholders is built and a pool of trained personnel be kept in readiness to meet the challenges of disaster.
10. Awareness Generation: It is also proposed to use all forms of media- audio and visual, all means of publicity and dissemination like posters-pamphlets-foyers etc, organize seminars/workshops/symposia, celebrate international day for disaster reduction and similar events at various levels to generate greater amount of awareness among the common public.

7.1 Energy
Bihar has only 584 MW of installed capacity of which 540 MW is thermal and the remaining 44 MW is Hydel. At present, there are only two Thermal Power Stations in the State Sector namely Barauni Thermal Power Station (2x50 MW + 2x110 MW) with the Bihar State Electricity Board and Muzaffarpur Thermal Power Station (2x110 MW) with the Kanti Bijlee Utpadan Nigam Ltd., joint venture of Bihar State Electricity Board and NTPC Ltd. All the units at these power stations had been under long shut down due to various defects/problems and financial crunch. However, based on decisions taken by the State Govt. and the Central Govt., restoration works of one unit at each was taken up and presently the generation obtainable from the Barauni Thermal Power Station Unit No- 6 is 60-70 MW and 70-80 MW from Muzaffarpur Thermal Power Station Unit No - 2. The demand of power in the state is around 1900 MW. The demand of power is met mainly from the Central Sector allocation which is presently 1554 MW. In the light of the small installed generation capacity and to meet the ever growing requirement, several steps have been taken to enhance power generation capacity both in the public sector and private sector.

7.2 Transport
Transport Sector is one of the most important service sectors of the economy. Growth of transport sector ensures all round development of other sectors of the economy. A well developed transport sector positively influences Gross Domestic Production of a country and it definitely contributes to the quality of life of the citizen.
Transport Sector is also one of the main sources of revenue of the state government. Road Tax and different types of fees collected by the transport officials contribute to the coffer of the government. Moreover, the Transport Department has the responsibility to enforce the provisions of M.V.Act'1988 and other state Acts and Rules.
Annual Plan 2010-11
In this perspective modernisation and computerisation of the transport offices has become essential. The Transport Department has undertaken plan to computerise all the District Transport Offices of the state
The Ministry of Shipping and Road Transport, govt. of India has proposed to finance the programme of computerisation of the DTO offices and operationalisation of the software 'Vahan' and 'Sarathi'. Computerisation and issuance of the smart card based driving license and registration certificate will help the Transport Department to deliver better services to the citizens.
Against this backdrop it is essential that Transport offices should be modernized and it should be more spacious. Presently none of the offices of the DTO has sufficient space for the installation of computers and other new equipments.
The Transport Department proposes to complete the ongoing schemes and construct new office building

7.3 Road Construction
The development of Infrastructure is the most important factor for economic growth. The road network opens up access to services and joins the production centers to the markets.The existing road network in Bihar is grossly inadequate and the growth rate has also been inadequate. While the growth of Road Network in country since 1990 was 99.6%, in the case of Bihar it has been only 27.7%. On the other hand, while the number of Motor Vehicles on all India bases since 1990 has increased by 197%, the same for Bihar has increased by 239%. Thus, it is evident that growth of Road Network in Bihar has not matched the growth in Traffic Volumes on its road.
The Road Density (Road length in Km per Sq. Km area) in Bihar is 50.80 Km per 100 sq Km area, whereas the national average is 75.00 KM.
Bihar being a densely populated State, it is more meaningful to measure its road density with respect to population, While for the country as whole, this density stands at 256.70 KMs. per lakh of population, in Bihar it is only 90.10 KM. Therefore, the road density in Bihar is much lower than the national average.

NH in Bihar
Total length of National Highways in Bihar is 3734 Km. A total of 719 K.ms. of NH have been transferred to NHAI for upgradation to 4-lane divided carriageway under NHDP scheme phase-I and II Golden Quadrilateral Project (206 Km) and East-West Corridor (513 Km). A length of 1015 K.ms of N.H. has been sanctioned to be 4-laned under NHDP Phase-III. The NHDP-III has however, not been able to start on BOT (Toll) basis. The Government of India is exploring BOT (Annuity) for NHDP-III in Bihar. 53 Km length of NH-77 (Hajipur – Muzaffarpur section) has been taken on BOT (Annuity) basis in this financial year.
The balance around 2935 Kms of NH in the State consists mainly of sections that were notified as a NH in 9th and 10th Plan Periods. Most of these roads were in the flood prone area of North Bihar and were in very poor condition. Around 1303 Kms of NH is 2-laned and rest is only intermediate /single lane with many missing links. Immediate attention need to be paid to improve this balance length in 2-lane configuration with hard shoulders and to its riding quality.
At present 2935 Km of NH is maintained through Govt. of Bihar as agency. Approval and funding for this is being obtained from annual grant of MOSRTH. As the sanctions by the GoI took time and the allocations were limited, the State Govt. has had to use its own funds in order to maintain the National highways.
Four Laning of Major Corridors
Apart from 4-laning of 1734 Kms by NHAI under NHDP following projects are being taken up on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode on BOT for which IDFC and IL&FS has been appointed as Project Development Consultants.
Two Laning of State Highways
SHDP: Rashtriya Sam Vikas Yojana (RSVY)
Upgradation of 2035 Km of State Highways under SHDP has been taken up under the Rashtriya Sam Vikas Yojana (RSVY) for which an outlay of Rs. 3000 Cr has been earmarked. Out of this outlay Rs. 577.69 Cr has been spent during the 10th Plan Period and Rs. 1916.732 Cr has been released to the Central Agencies by the Planning Commission during 11th 5 Year Plan period. Total released amount to the Central Agencies is Rs. 2494.422 Cr.
The work of upgradation of SH has been entrusted to CPWD & IRCON. The entire 1998 Kms have been split into 43 packages and work has been awarded / started in 43 packages. Out of this 1180 Km has been completed by November 2009 and another 450 Km work has been completed by March 2010. The total work will be targeted to be completed by June 2010. Progress of Projects Under RSVY (upto November 2009) is shown as under.
Rail - cum Road bridge under RSVY:-
Rail cum road bridge over river Ganges is under construction under BRGF (Formerly RSVY).The estimated cost of the bridge is Rs554.00 Cr, against which an amount of Rs 125.00 Cr has been released to Railway Board . This scheme will continue to be funded under BRGF (state) during 2010-11.

The State has also declared an additional 826.92 KMs, which are important from economic / tourism / administrative point of view, as State Highways. Govt. of Bihar has approached ADB for financial assistance for BSHP-II
Major District Roads (MDRs)
Carriageway of majority of MDRs is varying from 3.05 mtrs to 3.50 mtrs wide. This width is grossly inadequate considering the quantum jump in traffic volume and axle load, which is further compounded by its poor riding quality.
In 2009-10, 714 Kms has been selected for improvement / strengthening, out of which 141 Km is proposed to be taken up from State Plan and 573 Km from Non-Plan. The tentative cost for improvement / strengthening in State Plan and Non-plan are Rs. 125 Cr and Rs. 290 Cr respectively. The target time of completion is June 2011.
Length taken up in different years is shown below:-
In addition to above, another 857 Kms costing Rs. 679.00 Cr. is proposed to be taken for improvement/strengthening in 2010-11. Out of which a length of 214 Km amounting to Rs. 299 Cr will be taken up under Left Wing Affected (Naxal) Roads Project; 100 Km amounting to Rs.80Cr. will be taken up under Plan head and 543 Km amounting to Rs.300Cr. from Non Plan head.

up during the 11th Plan period.
To provide adequate waterway, construction of new bridges / culverts in flood prone areas will be a priority during 2010-11.
In 2009-10, another 10 nos. of Bridge projects under state plan and 3 nos. of Mega Bridge projects under NABARD costing Rs 183.61Cr. and Rs. 924.73 Cr. respectively have been taken up. Expected expenditure in 2009-10 on these schemes is likely to be 10% of the project cost. The target time of completion is June 2012.
The total committed liability upto November 2009 is Rs. 407.10 Cr in State Plan, Rs. 0.42 Cr in CRF & Rs. 1104.43 in NABARD.
In addition to above, another 10 nos. of Bridge projects under state plan and 25 nos. under CRF costing Rs. 100.00 Cr. and 119.23 Cr. respectively will be taken up in 2010-11. The target time of completion is June 2013.
Three major bridge projects on unabridged gap over major rivers have been taken up in 2009-10 under NABARD Loan scheme. The work has been started and the projects likely to be completed in 2012-13
Bridges on unabridged gaps over Major Rivers
Despite the large numbers of rivers and streams, the availability of bridges in the State is woefully inadequate. The Ganges crosses the entire breadth of the State (approx 400 Kms) but there are only four bridges on the Ganges. For speedy development of the State, there should be at least a bridge at an interval of every 50Km along the major rivers.
Mukhya Mantri Setu Nirman Yojana
2142 nos. schemes costing about Rs 1375 Cr. has been selected by Steering Committee. Bridge projects costing up to Rs. 25.00 lakhs are executed by District Administration and Bridge projects individually costing between Rs. 25 Lakh to Rs. 10 Cr. have been entrusted to Bihar Rajya Pul Nirman Nigam Ltd. for execution. 310 no. of Bridge projects were completed by BRPNNL and 1016 nos. of Bridge projects were completed by District Administration upto November 2009.
In addition to these 1200 nos. of Bridges costing Rs. 800 Cr. will be taken up in 2010-11. Expected expenditure will be 20% of the Project Cost in 2010-11. The target time of the completion is 2011-12.

7.4 Rural Works
Transport is a key element in the infrastructure. It provides services essential for promoting development. It plays a significant role in influencing the pattern of distribution of economic activity and improving productivity. It acts as a life-line linking markets, educational and health institutions. Above all, it connects the mosaic of cities, towns & villages of this vast country, thereby underpinning its unity and integration.
The State has 63,261 kms of rural roads. Investment in rural roads contributes directly to the decline of poverty and improvement of quality of life in rural areas. The investment in rural roads would directly contribute to the growth of agricultural output, increased use of fertilizers and commercial banks expansion. Most rural roads in Bihar have a very low initial traffic volume as the conditions of these roads are poor.
Village connectivity is being provided under the 100%centrally sponsored scheme, namely the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna which is now one of the components of the Bharat Nirman Yojana. Under the PMGSY, all the unconnected habitations having population greater than 500 (in plain area) are to be provided with all weather road connectivity in a time bound manner. The scheme earlier proposed connectivity to all habitations with population above 1000 by the end of year 2003. This has now been changed to 2009.
(1) R.I.D.F. Scheme:-
Under this scheme, Kuchha or Pucca roads or part of the roads of the Rural Works Department having width lesser than 3.75 meter and which are not sanctioned under PMGSY or any other schemes are taken for upgradation or strengthening. These roads provide connectivity to the agricultural centers/markets with the main urban markets for the carriage of the agricultural products.
(2) Minimum Needs Programme:-
Kuchha or Pucca roads of Rural Works Department are taken up for upgradation, widening (to 3.75 meter) and strengthening as per the designed crust based on traffic volume and soil condition. In addition, Roads connecting the villages to districts, Sub-divisions and block head quarters, industrial areas, agriculture centers, academic institutions and health centers/hospitals are taken up under this scheme.
(3) Detailed Project Report:-
Under this scheme expenditure on the preparation of Detailed Project Reports for New Schemes will be met.
(4) Establishment:-
Expenditure under the Establishment Head is based on the working strength against the total number of sanctioned posts in Rural Works Department under the Plan Head. These posts include posts of engineering and administrative cadre.
(5) Training & Seminar
(6) Special Component Programme for Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes:-
The roads connecting villages dominated by Scheduled Castes/Tribes and roads not sanctioned in any other schemes are taken up for improvement and upgradation for the purpose of providing connectivity to the Scheduled castes and Scheduled tribes population under this scheme.
139
(7) MMGSY
The State of Bihar envisages providing connectivity to villages having population in between 500-999 by all weather pucca roads. The Steering Committee established in each district under the chairmanship of a Cabinet Minister and Secretaryship of the concerned District magistrate prepares the priority list of roads to be taken up under this scheme.
(8) MLA/MLC Local Area Development Schemes
(9) Apki Sarkar Apke Dwar:-
The State Government has took a decision to improve the condition of the downtrodden people residing in Naxal/Extremist affected areas. For this purpose, the roads and bridges connecting the Naxal/Extremist affected villages to the District, Sub divisions, Block H.Q. and Panchayats have to be improved, strengthened and constructed for all round development.
(10) Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana
Village connectivity is being provided under the 100% centrally sponsored scheme, namely the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna which is now one of the components of the Bharat Nirman Yojana. Under the PMGSY all the unconnected habitation having population greater than 1000 (in plain area) are to be provided with all weather road connectivity in a time bound manner. The scheme earlier proposed connectivity to all habitations with population above 1000 by the end of year 2003 but this has now been changed to 2009. All the Programmes related with Village roads (VR) and Other District Roads (ODR) are being executed by Rural Works Department, Bihar with the help of a registered agency, viz. Bihar Rural Road Development Agency (BRRDA).
(11) Office Machines, Equipment and Computerization
Technological upgradation is priority of the department. Office Machines, Equipment and Computerization are proposed in Annual Plan 2010-11.

The 1st Phase of PMGSY (year 2000-01) consists of 299 roads with a total length of about 860 km having a total allocation of Rs. 149.00 crore to to provide connectivity to 629 habitations. The total expenditure till November, 2009 is Rs. 130.91 crore, completing 258 roads (Total lenghth about 694.64
140
km). Under PMGSY Phase-II (Year 2001-03), Rs. 302.98 crore has been sanctioned for 670 roads with a total length of about 1540 km to provide connectivity to 1236 habitation, against which Rs. 150 crore has been released to the State in the month of December, 2003, Rs. 60 crore in may, 2005 and Rs. 66.92 crore in Oct. 06. The total expenditure upto November, 2009 is Rs. 243.19 crore, completing 534 roads covering a total length about 1114.536 km.. The total expenditure under Phase-I & II upto November, 2009 is Rs. 374.09 crore against the total allocation of Rs. 426.82 crore completing 792 roads caressing a road length about 1809.176 km. To expedite the work of PMGSY in the State, the work of Phase-III & onwards is being directly implemented by the Ministry of Rural Development, Govt. of India, through 5 nominated Central Government Agencies, viz, NBCC, NPCC, CPWD, NHPC and IRCON. An MoU was signed to this effect of 31st August, 2004. A total of Rs. 8312.02 crore of project for construction of 18905.75 km roads have been cleared by MoRD and the total expenditure upto November, 2009 is Rs. 2678.39 crore completing 5587.53 km. The Department has taken up upgradation of Through Routes from State Plan also. Thus the present target under Bharat Nirman Yojana is as follows:-
Connectivity targets for 1000+ population
No. of Villages of 1000+ population - 25416
- Connected - 8800
- Unconnected - 16616
The work required to be done to achieve the connectivity by 2009 is very substantial and needs special efforts and arrangements. Since the progress of Central Agencies is not sufficient to achieve the target and the State may not be able to receive the full advantage and money from the scheme, it has been decided to take up the balance work through the Department itself. For this the work of DPR preparation and process management has been outsourced and under the time frame for completing the remaining work under the Bharat Nirman Yojana the work has been started.
Apart from this missing Bridges falling in above construction and upgradation proposals, have to be constructed also for which the funds from MoRD/GoB are required as per clause 8.5 (V) of the PMGSY Guidelines. So far, NEAs have reported the requirement for Rs. 238.00 crore (approx).
For remaining bridges, the cost is being ascertained. The Department is according top priority for quality and timely completion of works taken up. Contract Management and Construction Supervision works are being outsourced. For close supervision and monitoring, the department has procured one circle and 72 divisions with complete technical structure from other department. Core Network is being updated. On-Line Monitoring System in PMGSY has been introduced and this is being extended to other schemes also. E-tendering is being introduced. Apart from these, steps for training and capacity enhancement of contractors have been taken.

8. Urban Development and Housing
Cities are important vehicles for social & economic transformation. For sustainable transformation of cities and to establish an independent tier of government accountable to the local citizens, 74th constitutional amendments constitute the first constitutional recognition of the local government. These coupled with the new programme initiatives undertaken by the Central Government has provided a unique opportunity to the State Governments to improve the quality of Urban Governance, complete the democratic decentralization process already initiated, improve the delivery of basic services, reduce urban poverty and give a boost to overall economic development in the State.
2 Review of Tenth Plan And Target for Eleventh Plan
In the Tenth Plan period revised outlay for Urban Development Department was Rs. 73847.62 lakhs, against which the financial achievement was Rs. 74414.59 lakhs,
3. Details of Scheme proposed for Eleventh Plan period
3.1. Water Supply -Regular supply of safe drinking water is the crying need of the people in the urban areas of Bihar. The existing piped water supply systems are very old and dilapidated, or are grossly inadequate to meet the requirements of the towns as they have grown substantially since they were originally constructed. The spread of water borne diseases, especially during the monsoon season, is common because the old water supply pipes are in a worn out condition and they get contaminated by the parallel running drainage system. Therefore, there is the urgent need to augment the existing sources as well as the replacement of the distribution systems. The following Municipal Corporations/Nagar Parishad/Nagar Panchayats are proposed to be covered under the scheme.
a) Municipal Corporations: Patna, Bhagalpur, Darbhanga, Gaya, Muzaffarpur, Biharsharif, Katihar, Purnea, Munger, Begusarai and Arah.
b) Nagar Parishads Chapra, Motihari, Hazipur, Danapur, Sasaram, Dehri, Siwan, Saharsa, Jamalpur, Barh, Sheikhpura, Kishanganj, Mokama, Lakhisarai, Hilsa and Bettiah.
c) Nagar Panchayat: Bakhtiarpur, Sonepur and Rivilganj.
3.1.1 There are some towns in the state where there is no pipe water supply system as yet. The following towns are proposed to be taken up namely Dighwara, Sugauli, Jamalpur, Narkatiaganj, Jogbani, Kasba, Areraj, Bagaha, Murliganj, Ghoghardiha and Gogri Jamalpur. During Financial year 2009-10 plan outlay of Rs.10000.00 lakh has been proposed for water supply system
3.2. Sanitation and Cleaning Programme:-
3.2.1 Sanitation is a critical area which needs to be taken up on priority. Schemes under sanitation cover construction of drains, solid waste management and conversion and construction of dry latrines. Almost all towns of Bihar are facing the problem of water logging. The existing drainage system is insufficient to cater to the needs of the present level of population. Therefore, it is proposed to augment the existing drainage system and construct new drains. The augmentation of drainage system of Patna is on top priority.
3. 2.2 The State Government is committed to eradicate manual scavenging from the state. In the National Formulation Plan formulated by the Government of India a number of 200230 dry latrines are to be converted to wet latrines in the State of Bihar. Therefore, the State Government is giving top priority for ending this pernicious practice and for the conversion of dry latrines. The scheme is targeted to be

10. Environment and Forest
Forests play a vital role in the national economy. They perform manifold functions. It is a powerful and economic means of moderating climate and mitigating its rigours. It is indispensable to agriculture as it brings life giving rains, protects the soil from erosion and regulates stream flow. Its three functions are vital to our economy. (i) conservation of water resources (ii) mitigation of floods and (iii) conservation of soil which reduces sedimentation of rivers, valley projects, dams and canals. Shelter belts across the prevailing direction of desiccating winds protect the agricultural land. Above all the forest is the basis of our industrial development. Not only that but it is also necessary for construction work for houses, for manifold domestic uses, and many of our industries from matchwood to railway coaches, from rayon to newsprint, from essence to essential oils depend completely on the wealth of timber and grasses yielded by our forests.
For the financial year 2010-11 proposed plan outlay for the Environment Forest Department includes funds for state schemes and the state share of the centrally sponsored schemes.
The schemes involve three aspects:
I Forestry related aspects:
1) Improving tree cover by increasing the existing forest cover and by bringing more area under tree cover.
2) Rehabilitation of degraded forests supported by plantations along roadside, canal side and embankments and agro-forestry which propose to motivate plantation on private lands.
3) To increase plantation Chatra Vriksharopan Yojana is being implemented.
4) Schemes for strengthening the protection of forests against illicit felling and fire are proposed under the Integrated Forest Development Scheme and, Assistance under the 12th Finance Commission.
II Wildlife related aspects:
1) For development of Valmiki Tiger project funds from the National Tiger Conservation Authority will be utilized
2) For development of other sanctuaries funds will be sourced from under centrally sponsored schemes and under both 50:50 and 100% grant from the central government. This is proposed to be supplemented by funds from the state plan as the funds made available by the Central Government are not sufficient for development of sanctuaries which cover 50 % of the forest area of the state. It is proposed to create new head ―Wildlife Conservation‖ from this year.
3) For the development of Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park funds will be sourced from the Central Zoo Authority.
III Environment Related Aspects:
1) It is proposed to strengthen the Pollution Control Board in developing necessary infrastructure for better monitoring of the environmental parameters in the state.
2)
A brief write up of the proposed activities is given as follows.
STATE PLAN SCHEMES
1. Rehabilitation of Degraded Forests: Under this scheme degraded forest areas are treated to increase the density of forest cover by raising plantations at a spacing of 2500/1000 plants per hectare. The State has taken up an ambitious plan for rehabilitation of the forest in Rajgir hills on a priority basis. The area is an international tourist attraction and extreme biotic pressure has degraded the hill slopes of the Rajgir hill chain.
164
2. Nahar Tat Farm: The state of Bihar is criss-crossed with a network of canals and river embankments. In view of the paucity of land in Bihar, the canal banks and embankments are being used for plantation for increasing the tree cover of the state.
