A demand was put forward by the Diaspora for creating a platform where they could come together, share their views and through which they could contribute in the development of their motherland. To honour emotions and demand of Bihari diaspora, the Government of Bihar decided to establish Bihar Foundation by a resolution (No. 4433, Dated – 24th November 2006) of the Department of Industries, Bihar. Later on, after suggestions of eminent persons in the ‘Global Meet for a Resurgent Bihar’ (19-21 January, 2007), it was decided to start Bihar Foundation as a Society and it got registered as a society under Department of Industry, Government of Bihar on 27th July 2007.
