PATNA: Bihar is the densest state in the India followed by West Bengal according to the latest revelation of CSO. The Primary Census Abstract 2011 released by CSO recently suggests that Bihar has a population density of 1,106 people per sq km, while the neighbouring state West Bengal is in second spot with 1,028.

Bihar has replaced the West Bengal for the top spot, as its density in 2001 was 881, second to West Bengal, where 903 people used to live per square km.

By comparison with neighbouring country the population density of Bangladesh is 964 (India’s is 382), says the 2011 preliminary report of the Population and Housing Census of Bangladesh. With an area of 1, 47,570 sq km, Bangladesh has the highest population density in the world for a country of its size. 

While Monaco, Singapore, Bahrain, Maldives and Malta are all more densely populated, the area of each country is less than 1,000 sq km. 

The rise in the population densities of Bihar and West Bengal, however, is not a cause for much concern, say experts. This is because both states are still mainly rural. It is the burgeoning of urban populations that leads to unsustainable situations such as an 
insupportable demand for drinking water.

What is process job in bihar block

by Jitendra Sharma

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!

my dob is -12/02/92 my exam centre is in tilaya on 18 dec but i had lost my admit card so plz give my roll no. atleast so i check the result.

by Rohit Kumar

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
