Patna/Hyderabad, Oct 2 (Maxim News): The Chief Minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar today released the findings of its much-awaited caste survey, which revealed that OBCs and EBCs constitute a whopping 63 percent of the state’s total population.

According to the data released here by Development Commissioner Vivek Singh, the state’s total population stood at a little over 13.07 crore, out of which, the Extremely Backward Classes (36 percent) were the largest social segment followed by the Other Backward Classes at 27.13 percent.
