Though our state has been mostly agrarian, the returns from this sector have been
mostly erratic due to various factors and it is natural for the economy to look

The vision of the Government both at macro and micro level is inarguably to produce
quality products marketable anywhere in the world. In order to be globally competitive

professional associations, donors, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and government
departments and the community to maximize efficient use of resources.
I am glad that DST, Bihar has achieved many milestones in recent past and striving
