Rich Biharis, Poor Bihar

Patna may not have any industry or any other major commercial activity worth talking about. But that does not mean that people of the city are poor. The city is, believe it or not, flooded with money, if one goes by the amount of money being deposited in banks there.

Move over Gurgaon, Noida, Navi Mumbai, Surat and Ludhiana. Patna has beaten them all with the highest deposit figure of Rs 23,169 crores. Noida follows closely behind with Rs 22, 380 crores.

Patna has another distinction: bank deposits exceed the annual expenditure of the whole state!

Where's the money coming from? There are hardly any well-known Bihari industrialists anywhere. Yes, Bihar probably sends maximum entrants to the civil services. Along with its army of babus, it also boasts some 'famous' politicians.

Rich Biharis, poor Bihar. Did anyone say corrupt?
