‘GDP Of Bengal Has More Than Doubled In Five Years’


Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in her Facebook page informed that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of West Bengal has more than doubled from nearly Rs.4.61 Lakh Crore in 2010-11 to Rs.9.20 Lakh Crore in 2015-16.

This quantum jump has been possible, partly due to massive increase in plan expenditure and partly due to huge creation of permanent assets in the state through increased capital expenditure.

The plan expenditure in the state has increased by nearly 4 times from Rs.14,615 Crore in 2010-11 to Rs.54,069 Crore in 2015-16 and capital expenditure has increased by nearly 7 times from Rs.2225 Crore in 2010-11 to Rs.15,946 Crore in 2015-16.

Our commitment is to take Bengal to the No.1 position in the country and my entire “Paschimbanga Paribar” is fully dedicated to this task, the West Bengal Chief minister said.
