Patna, Apr 2: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said the proposed state Information Technology Policy 2011 would be rechristened as Bihar Communication Technology Policy 2011 for bringing about a revolution in communication and information sectors in the state and accord it the status of an industry.

Reviewing the progress made in formulation of the new policy at a high-level meeting here, Kumar stressed the need for transparency in the policy.

''There should be complete transparency in allotment of land, capital subsidy, electric subsidy, stamp duty and electricity subsidy for expanding the communication and I T base in Bihar,'' he said adding the I T unit providing greater job avenues would receive due attention under the proposed policy.
