    Executive Summary

    The City Profile: As per provisional reports of Census 2011 India, the population of Hajipur is

    1,47,126, which makes it the 16thmost populous city in Bihar. The male and female population is

    78,561 (53.4%) and 68,565 (46.4%) respectively. The sex ratio of Hajipur city is 873 per 1000

    males, which is lower than that of Bihar state (916) and amongst the lowest among the cities ofBihar. The total literates in Hajipur city are 100,691 of which 57,537 are males while 43,154 are

    females. The average literacy rate of Hajipur city is 79.26%, which is higher than the state literacy

    rate of 63.8%, but again on the lower side amongst the cities. The male and female literacy rates are

    73.23% (Bihar: 73.39%) and 62.93% (Bihar: 53.33%) respectively.

    At present there are 39 wards in the Hajipur Municipal Corporation. Over the years the city has

    harnessed the agricultural base to develop its industrial and tertiary sectors. The main working

    population of Hajipur is 25% of the total population. There are three industrial areas in Hajipur, the

    main one being the Hajipur Industrial Estate established by BIADA. There are 97 agro-based

    industries in Hajipur and out of the 127 industries based in the Industrial Estate, a little more than

    half are in operation.

    The Municipal Corporation covers an area of 19.64 sq. kms. Unlike many cities in Bihar, Hajipur

    does not show a corridor kind of development. The city has grown along the Muzaffarpur Road

    with the River Gandhak and the Railway track acting as the outer limits of the city on Western side.

    In the recent years development in the north eastern and south eastern sides of the city is being

    observed. The areas beyond the Railway Line in the northern side of the city have seen growth of

    new development nodes towards Vaishali and Muzaffarpur, which are growing at a rate that is

    much higher than the city.

    The entire Municipal Corporation has 98 employees from a total of 230 sanctioned posts, which

    amounts to only 43% of the sanctioned strength. At an overall level, the Corporation had been ableto maintain a positive closing balance each year (2004-05 to 2009-10). Revenue through property

    tax contributed 12% to the total revenue income of the Municipality. Both revenue account and

    capital account has been accruing a substantial amount of surplus. Hajipur Municipality derived

    18.0% (average 2008-09 to 2010-11) of its revenues from taxes and about 12% (average 2008-

    09 to 2010-11) from non-tax sources, with grants providing a further 68% (average 2008-09 to

    2010-11) of the revenues which reflects higher dependency on the government funds.

    Economic Profile of Vaishali-Hajipur Region: Like in other parts of urban Bihar, recent trends

    indicate gradual growth of the Tertiary sector, with an ever decreasing agricultural base.

    Primary Sector:The share of primary activities in the district domestic product has increased by

    50% from 2001-02 to 2004-05, which is largely due to diversification in agriculture and the

    increase in agricultural productivity, due to better technological and scientific inputs in the

    cropping techniques and management. As per the Economic Survey Report 2010-11, Vaishali

    district was ranked second in the production of vegetables, fruits and flowers in 2008-09. Banana,

    mango, litchi, guava, wheat and maize are the main agricultural products of the district. A huge

    annual loss, amounting to 25 to 40% of the total fruits and vegetables produced, occurs on account

    of poor methods of harvesting and transport facilities. This is due to poor pre and post harvest

    management practices and lack of availability of appropriate fruit and vegetable processing

    industries (FVPI).

    The average annual production of fish in the state is nearly 2.61 lakh tonnes against the annual

    demand of 4.56 lakh tonnes. Fish farming & development of sweet prawn and shrimp farming

    practice, which fetch high value in international markets, have good potential in Hajipur. However,siltation of ponds, availability of fish seed and adequate, suitable preservation infrastructure and

    outdated technology are serious impediments to the development of this sector. The district stands

    at 20th position when compared against average milk yield, and at 19th position when compared

    average milk density (Lit /per day /sq km) of all districts (National Dairy Development Board, April

    2008). The challenges in the dairy sector are very poor coverage of veterinary and artificial

    insemination services and paucity of cattle feed and its production.

    Secondary Sector: With three industrial areas in Hajipur and its proximity to Patna, industry is one

    of the priority sectors in the economy of the Vaishali-Hajipur region. However, it needs to be

    regularized and linked to lucrative markets in a sustainable manner.
