Kolkata: The gross domestic product (GDP) of the state has more than doubled in the last five years of the Mamata Banerjee government. Chief minister Mamata Banerjee said this on her Facebook post on Saturday.
The chief minister posted, “You will be happy to know 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 post said.
“Just to share with you, 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 chief minister further posted on her Facebook page.
