Over the years, with the rise of the appliance era, and our reliance on them, electricity has grown to earn itself an essential status in our day to day life. We are now over-reliant on electricity to run our appliances and make our day smoother so much so that without it, our day comes to quite the standstill. In order to make lives better for people in the state of Bihar – especially those stricken with generations of poverty, the Bihar government has announced the Bihar Har Ghar Bijli Yojana 2021
This scheme was launched because even in this modern era, there are several households across India that still do not enjoy the privilege of electricity. They are still living a life without electricity which is a very primitive way of living and that kind of life devoids them from so much that modernity has to offer.

This will impact several walks of their life positively and open up avenues that will enable poorer households to break the shackles of poverty and grow to better things in life.
