Overview

The Mukhyamantri Parivahan Yojana was launched by the Bihar Chief Minister Shri Nitish Kumar in 2014.

Under this scheme, new passenger vehicles will be provided to the rural people, and the Government will subsidize only the beneficiaries for 3 and 4 wheel vehicles.

  • To provide the rural people, a fully integrated pro-active transport system.
