Bihar economy growing under Nitish Kumar: Modi
Patna: The economy of Bihar grew at an
annual rate of 11.36 per cent from 2004-05 to 2010-11 showing
a revival of a stagnant economy of the state, Deputy Chief
Minister S K Modi said on Wednesday.
The growth rate of the state economy in 2010-11 was
14.8 per cent comparing to that in 2009-10, Modi, who holds
the finance portfolio, told reporters after tabling the
economic survey for 2011-12 in the state assembly.
"This was possible owing to substantial increase in
public investment," he said.
Modi said the average productivity during 2007-10 of
three important cereals was 1353 kg per hectare for rice, 2208
kg per hectare for wheat and 2629 kg per hectare for maize.

22.4 tonne per hectare for rice, he said.
