The Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority (BIADA) has invited applications for allotment of 197 acres of its land across the state for industrial purposes.
BIADA neither has a huge land bank nor has it undertaken any massive land acquisition exercise in the recent past. Sources said BIADA has around 200 acres of land, which has been recently retrieved through various measures, including exit policy.
The land offered for allotment is spread over four circles of BIADA — Patna, Darbhanga, Muzaffarpur and Bhagalpur. Small plots range from 0.02 to 9.77 acre while the largest plots are in Kumarbagh industrial area at Muzaffarpur (40.34 acre) and industrial growth centre in Aurangabad (25.40 acre). Pataliputra industrial area in Patna has mere 0.20 acre on offer and there is no vacant land at Bihta.
