Bihar falls short of meeting agri-credit
Patna: Bihar is lagging behind in achieving
the target of distribution of agriculture credit and
expenditure of plan funds during 2011-12 fiscal.
Against the target of Rs 21,000 crore for agri-credit
during 2011-12, hardly Rs 8000 crore were distributed by the
end of November 2011, NABARD sources told PTI.
The state government had also increased the plan size
to Rs 24,000 for the current fiscal, but the figures of plan
expenditure were far from satisfactory, the sources said.
Leader of the Opposition Abdul Bari Siddiqui alleged
failure in executing National Rural Health Mission fund as the
state was able to utilize only Rs 780 crore against a whopping
allocation of Rs 1300 crore.
The government could spend 50 per cent of the total fund
allocation for Sarva Sikshya Abhiyan in Bihar, he said.
