  • Husk based power projects are not a solution to chronic power shortage in bihar. if we want to initiate an industrial growth in state, mass production of electricity is required. which again not possible by seasonal husk (also air pollutent).these bran should be best for animal fodder,organic fertilisers etc hence help in agri sector.
    So look towards hydel, solar pv and other renewable resources. think large….. jai hind
