Dr. Kumar, while media interactions at BSHB stall at Gandhi Maidan to mark 100th year celebrations of Bihar in Patna, said: "It is our responsibility to provide them adequate infrastructure with global standard. These projects will change the face of our cities and provide them new dimensions like Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi." To execute the project, Housing Board is taking consultancy like famous architect Hanif Contractor, and other India’s best township planners. It is also in talks with leading real estate developers of the Country, he added.

According to Mr. Shashi Shekhar Sharma, Principal Secretary, Department of Urban Development and Housing, "We will change the skyline of housing sector in Bihar and bring it on the path of development once again. Housing facilities will define the life style of the city it is relate to our standard of living. BSHB is committed to provide world-class housing option to the people of Bihar. It will also cater the need of second home of non-residential Biharis, who wants a home in his own state."

Elaborating about the projects Mr. A. K. Suman, MD, Bihar State Housing Board (BSHB) said: "In first phase, we will build 11,500 flats in Patna, 10,000 in Gaya, 3,000 In Muzaffarpur and 500 in Bhagalpur. New residential projects are coming in sector S, T, U in Kankargarbag and sector 3, 6, 7 in Bahadurpur in Patna. In Gaya we are constructing a new township at Katari Area and in this new township one 7-star hotel, big size mall, schools and hospital would also be there. In Muzaffarpur we will redevelop the colonies at many locations, while new development activities will be carried out in Bhagalpur."
