Bihar Diwas 2023 is a public holiday across the state as offices, companies, banks, and educational institutes under the central and state governments remain closed. This year, the state of Bihar will complete 111 years of existence. The Bihar government has organised a string of multicultural events and programs to celebrate the day. The objective of the celebration was to restore the pride of Bihar in the hearts of the people.
