Patna: Still struggling to attract IT investment in Bihar despite offer of many lucrative deals to the potential investors, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Friday inaugurated the state's first 'IT Start-up Hub' at the Biscomaun Bhawan in Patna aimed to encourage young technocrat aspirants in Bihar.

Urging Bihar's youths to set up 'start-up' businesses, a term recently gaining popularity among the Indian politicians, Modi said the government was there to help them at each step of the business so they could become one of the many success stories coming out of Bihar.

"I encourage our youths to come forward and take risks trying to do something beyond conventional things they usually do. The government is committed to provide them all the help they will need," he said.

Modi further said that besides a new 'IT Tower' being set up on Dak Bungalow Road in Patna, an 'IT Park' and an 'IT City' was to be set up in Bihta and Rajgir respectively.
