Why Choose Bihar

Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) of Bihar grew at a CAGR of 13.17% between 2015-16 and 2020-21. Bihar has witnessed strong growth in per capita net state domestic product. At current prices, per capita, the NSDP of the state grew at a CAGR of 13.41% (in Rs.) between 2015 and 2021.

Bihar's steady economic growth has helped strengthen the industry and induce potential expansion. The Bihar Industrial Investment Policy - 2016 and Bihar Startup Policy - 2017 are aimed at helping to grow the IT Industry.

Bihar is aggressively working on developing supporting infrastructure in the state. In the absence of adequate roads no state can amplify its economic growth. With this background, the State Government has resolved to connect the capital city of Patna to the remotest areas in the state, so that people can reach the capital within a maximum of six hours from any place. In recent years, the State Government has been making endeavors to achieve this goal and, as a result, the network of roads and bridges has expanded at a rapid pace.

Investment Promotion

Bihar as a state is ready with adequate infrastructure and technological advancement. The Department of Information Technology, Government of Bihar is fostering Start-up culture by providing flexible policies and customized support to the Startups operational in the field of IT/ ITeS, Software Development & Hardware Manufacturing, ESDM (Electronics System Development and Maintenance) along with firms involved in Research & Development of IT/ ITeS Products & Services to attract investment in the state.

Going forward, we have initiated provision of customized support to MSMEs and/or established companies in IT sector. We will develop IT tower at Dak Bangla and Bandar Bagicha. In long term - we are planning IT City and IT Park @ Rajgir and Bihar.

IT department has also emphasized on Incubation and Research centers. IT Department has funded C-DAC to initiate research and development in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Cyber Security & Cyber Forensics, and Internet of Things as part of the initial planning (IoT).

IT department has also funded NIELIT for enhancing Capacity Building by opening training centers at Patna, Buxar and Muzaffarpur. IT department has also funded IIT, Patna for incubation support. On similar lines, as Bihar is an Agri driven state , Bihar will soon open an AgriCoE (Agriculture Center of Excellence) to enhance agricultural productivity by innovative use of technology.
