Public Utility Services in BiharsharifBiharsharif is head quarter of Nalanda district and hence enjoys the accessibility of all major services that sets it apart from various other parts of the region. Besides, it is the most developed city of Nalanda district and is also today one of the fastest growing city of Bihar state. Owing to all these important factors, quality of public utility services in Bihar Sharif is in much better condition. This is defiantly true at least when we compare Bihar Sharif’s public utility services with most other cities of Bihar. This, however, doesn’t at all mean that there isn’t any scope of further improvement in utility services of Bihar Sharif. Yet they are capable enough to meet most of the requirements of the citizens.
Bihar Sharif Nagar NigamLike all other municipal corporations in rest of India, even Bihar Sharif Municipal Corporation looks after sanitation, water supply and supplying health necessities to all hospitals. Amongst these water supply is definitely the most critical service. After all, unrestricted water supply is what keeps any modern city’s day-to-day administration successfully running. Currently Bihar Sharif Nagar Nigam is able to meet water demand through ground water sources. It is currently able to supply 18.5 MLD water every year, which is far less than the actual demand of water in the city. One of the major detrimental factors in increasing water supply is water leakage problem, as it obviously results in huge water wastage. A blue print is prepared for the effective management of water resources in the area.
Health Services in Bihar SharifBiharsharif enjoys presence of good number of hospitals and pathlabs. Although there aren’t any multi specialty and super specialty hospitals functioning in the city, but their absence is pretty much made up by slew of private hospitals. Almost all of these hospitals are equipped with standard medical infrastructures like ICU, operation theatre, maternity ward, OPD etc. Biharsharif also has huge number of clinics and chemist shops. Amongst clinics specialized clinics like dental clinics, ENT clinics, Sexologist clinics and Ayurvedic Clinics are also functioning in adequate numbers in the city. However, lack of other important services like pathological labs and blood banks does have substantial effect on otherwise robust healthcare services. While pathological labs are present in quite few numbers, but there are literally no blood banks and even eye banks in the entire city.
Electricity Supply in Bihar SharifAs for which company is
responsible for supplying and distributing power in Bihar Sharif, then
that is taken care by South Bihar Power Distribution Company Ltd
(SBPDCL). SBPDCL is public undertaking by Government of Bihar. It is
solely responsible for supplying and distribution of power in entire
South Bihar region. Although SBPDCL has always struggled to supply
uninterrupted power supply, it however does offer slew of services like
on line bill payment to its customers.

Safety and Security in Bihar SharifWithout a doubt safety and security of ordinary citizens is of utmost importance. Unless and until ordinary citizens feel safe and secure, no city can even sustain – let alone thrive. Keeping this in mind, authorities in Biharsharif have put in place necessary safety measures in form of police stations and fire stations to ensure safety and security of its citizen at any cost. Although there is only one police station and fire station in entire Bihar Sharif, but for a small city like Biharsharif that’s more than enough. In addition, this lone police station and fire station are equipped with reliable machinarey/weapons and robust communication systems. This definitely has been one of the major factors in Bihar Sharif’s successful track record in law & order and its swift ability to deal with fire accidents.
