The Bihar State government has sanctioned Rs 300 crore for a dedicated feeder line for agriculture. The State cabinet on March 31approved the amount. This is a first-of-its-kind dedicated feeder line to provide electricity to farmers in Bihar, the government said. When it realised, millions of farms in power-starved Bihar will be benefitted.
The Bihar government plans to install 968 new feeders of 11kv each with 55,925 km of distribution line and 1.46 lakh transformers to primarily supply power to 19 lakh pumping sets in the next decade. The government has projected year-wise requirement of estimated funds for the feeder segregation. The total estimated amount for the 12th and 13th five-year plan is around Rs 8,370.44 crore.
The government has already projected its year-wise power requirements for agriculture sector for the next 10 years. By 2016-17, the state would require 1,478 mw power exclusively for agriculture sector. The government's move would go a long way in increasing agricultural productivity. Agriculture is the backbone of Bihar's economy, employing 81 per cent of the workforce and generating nearly 42 per cent of the state's domestic product, according to the State government.
At present only 5.83 per cent of the total power supply to the state is used in the agriculture sector in Bihar, compared to 38 per cent in Haryana, the highest in India.
