Limited Industrial Land in Bihar as Investment Surges

By Neeraj Kumar

Patna: The latest results from the monthly meeting of the Bihar Investment Promotion Board and the weekly meeting of the Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority (BIADA) reveal a significant development in the state’s industrial sector. Investments are now manifesting on the ground, leading to a shortage of available industrial land.

In nine industrial clusters across Bihar, only 1,558 acres of land remain in the land bank. More than a dozen industrial areas have exhausted their available plots, leaving no land for new investors in about half a dozen industrial zones. To address this, the government is encouraging new investors to consider areas with lower investment activity.

According to official BIADA information, the industrial land bank is completely depleted in the following areas:

  • Industrial Area (IA) Bhediadangi and Khagara in Kishanganj
  • Udakishanganj in Madhepura district
  • Kopakala of Naubatpur in Patna cluster
  • Belagnj in Darbhanga district
  • Industrial Area Lohat Phase II and Phase III in Madhubani district
  • Samastipur Industrial Area
  • Gaya, Nawada, Warisiliganj, and Vikramganj
  • Hathua Phase II and Phase III Industrial Area in Gopalganj
  • New Siwan Phase One and Industrial Area Siwan in Siwan cluster
  • Mahbal in Muzaffarpur cluster

Additionally, there is no land left in the Industrial Growth Center (IGC) Khagaria, Lakhisarai, and Sitakund Industrial Area.

The current cluster-wise land bank in Bihar stands at:

  • 150.63 acres in Begusarai cluster
  • 217 acres in Bhagalpur, Saharsa, and Purnia
  • 112.72 acres in Darbhanga
  • 108.73 acres in Gaya
  • 19 acres in Hajipur
  • 36.33 acres in Muzaffarpur
  • 500.36 acres in Motipur
  • 15.40 acres in Patna
  • 398 acres in Bihta cluster

The data indicates that very little industrial land remains vacant in the Patna, Muzaffarpur, and Hajipur clusters, signifying a rapid momentum in Bihar’s industrialization.
