Annual Family Income for BPL Families

Existing annual family income for BPL families after adjusting for inflation works out to Rs. 30,000 in the year 2006. The recommendations vary from Rs. 45,000 to Rs. 60,000 as explained above. It would therefore  be proper if the annual family income for BPL families is fixed around Rs. 40,000.

As per May 2011 notification a household with an annual earning of more than Rs. 27,000 will stand excluded from the BPL list. This is what the automatic exclusion and automatic inclusion criteria and the seven deprivation indicators are supposed to aim at.

The upper limit has been arrived at by allowing five earning persons in a household with a per capita monthly income of about Rs. 447 per month in the rural areas, which works out roughly to Rs. 2,,250 per month per household.

The Centre is working to frame procedures to allow anyone to appeal against the BPL list or the caste census for a better statistical understanding of numerical caste population of the country. The two lists will be pasted at each gram sabha for the purpose.

Each one is likely to get the AADHAR UID number as and when the gathered information is correlated with the inputs of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and its system.
