The ISM has planned to prepare a report on vision of Bihar’s development with the help of the deliberations of the conference. As such, this conference shall initiate a dialogue among the cross-intelligentsia to discuss various facets of development of Bihar and to suggest measures towards development strategy of the state.

About The Conference

Bihar once called as a ‘Bimaru’ state has now come out from the quagmire of the sickness of development. Consequently, the resurgent face of Bihar is well appreciated across the country. Before that Bihar remained one of the least developed states of India. One of the important reasons for such a significant change in the development perspective is due to state’s good strides on economic fronts during the last one and half decade. The available statistics on Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) indicate that the average annual growth rate during 1980s was 4.9 per cent which turned flat during 1991-92 to 1995-96. Similarly, during the period 2000-01 to 2004-05 the average annual growth rate at the constant prices of 2004-05 was reported to be 3.4 per cent. Since then there has been increasing trend in growth rate. The estimation indicates that the average annual growth rate at constant prices of 2004-05 was 10.2 during the period 2005-06 to 2009-10. However, during the period 2001-12 to 2016-17 the average annual growth rate at the constant prices of 2011-12 was 5.3 per cent. All these results of economic growth indicate that despite upward trend in growth rate in recent years the objective of sustainable growth is yet to be achieved.
If one looks at the economy of Bihar from socio-economic development point of view the story also does not go so well. The state is, by and large, lagging far behind in achieving the desirable level of socio-economic development which is quiet evident from various socio-economic indicators. For example, the incidence of poverty (poverty headcount ratio) during the year 2011-12 is 33.7 per cent meaning thereby that one-third of total population is below poverty line. The data on unemployment rate indicates that during the year 2015-16 it was 7.0 per cent in Bihar as against 6.0 per cent at the all-India level. Since both of these are reflections of the development profile of any region it can be said that Bihar has still to go forward to achieve the distinction of a developed state.

Infusion of Science and People in water Resources development

Water resources constitute a most valuable natural asset endowed by nature to mankind. If developed on sound scientific principles, this, along with other related resources such as land, climate and human resource, it can bestow enormous benefits to mankind. If water resources are developed ignoring or disregarding science involved, water resources being a dynamic resource can bring in damaging consequences, apart from denying the rightful benefits to the people. This has been illustrated in this paper by enunciating the science of water resources development and illustrating this with the case of river Kosi in Bihar. A relatively major project for development management of the Kosi river was undertaken in 1954. As science of water resources was ignored in formulating the plan, the people not only remained derived of the tremendous benefits
