Thanks a lot sir,  Some days ago you have provide one list which was just near of 16 so I have gone with 16 state.
Thanks Badan for updating my knowledge about Arunachal Pradesh PL Act. But I think Bihar Public Library act was passed in 2008.

Arunachal Pradesh Public Libraries Act. 2009 is right for satisfaction you may see in site of RAJA RAMMOHUN ROY FOUNDATION.

You can answer 16 though correct answer is 18 which is not in option.
There are in India 19 public library Acts.

Note: I got news from authentic sources that
Pondicherry did not pass the Public Library Act and is still in pipeline.

With regard to Orissa, the date is often given as
2001, but the Act is tabled in Assembly in 2001 but approved by Governor on
March 11, 2002. Hence the Act came into force from 2002.
