    The ISV program in Bihar will make sure that 70% of the money it spends stays in Bihar. This will help create a good business environment that can offer many new jobs. It will also make Bihar more attractive to international businesses.

    Who can participate in the ISV Program and get benefits?

    • Suppliers, manufacturers, service providers, or contractors working with the Bihar Government are expected to participate in the ISV program.
    • The stakeholders offering their products/services to the people of Bihar can also participate in ISV program.

    The Bihar Government should give contracts and extra rewards or financial help based on their ISV percentage. If the ISV% is higher then they will get more benefits and better growth opportunities in Bihar.

    Trading companies and distributors in Bihar are assigned an ISV score of zero. This is because they usually don't add much value to the state's development.However, if a company goes beyond the typical role of trading or distributing, such as by assembling products for the people of Bihar, installing the product, or providing maintenance, they can request an ISV score. This score can help them get benefits and financial support from the Bihar Government based on their ISV percentage.

    How ISV Will Be Calculated In Bihar?

    ISV-Bihar: To figure out the starting point for the ISV process, you need to fill out a survey when joining the ISV program. After becoming a part of the ISV program, suppliers build a 5-year ISV action plan to improve the ISV score. This plan should show how they intend to create value and improve the development in Bihar State.

    The formula to calculate ISV% for the Supplier is as follows:

    ISV% = (A + B + C + D + E)/T + X

    Here's what each letter means:

    • A = Goods and services made in Bihar
    • B = Compensation/Salary paid to the people of Bihar
    • C = Training and development given to residents of Bihar
    • D = Supplier development in Bihar
    • E = Local research and development in Bihar
    • T = Total costs incurred within Bihar
    • X = Export/Outside Bihar Revenue Factor expressed as a percentage based upon Export/Outside Bihar revenue divided by total revenue up to a maximum of 10%
