Bihar Bhoodan Yagna Committee president Shubham Murti said distribution of bhoodan land among women had been made possible by the positive approach of the government.
The land distribution programme is one of the Bihar government's many women empowerment initiatives.
A total of 50 percent of seats in village panchayats, block development committees and district boards are reserved for women.
Three years ago, the government also reserved 50 percent of teaching vacancies in government-run primary and secondary schools for women.
