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 a news agency.
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 percent of the total fund allocation for Sarva Sikshya Abhiyan in Bihar, he said.
