it is a very unfortunate situation about electricity in
bihar. there was a time when electricity was supplied from
bihar to bengal from dvc whose most of the power was
generated in bihar ( jharkhand ). bihar had an early lead
in terms of technology. at that time, one minister had
remarked as what would we would do with so much electricity
i have done invention and had patented in u. s. a. , and canada about
generating electricity using solar energy. i had built smaller models
which could be used by individual homes to have basic amount of
electricity ( for cooking in the night , and possibly for children to
study ). it costs between 4500 to 6500 rupees, if built in patna.
since bihari’s money is being sent out by the banks ( poor credit to
deposit ratio ) , at least nitishjee could persuade the banks to finance
such units for the poor who can not afford to come up with this amount of
money at one time. they could pay in installments. others could get them
at least, lives would not be lost in this manner.
if the government can not generate electricity by its own efforts – at
least it could contact banks to lend money which is bihari’s.
