Bihar: 1 dies after given polio vaccine

Bihar has remained polio-free for over four years, thanks to the state government's commitment supported by development partners in the polio eradication programme.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared India polio-free in 2014 after no case was detected in the country since 2011.
