No BPL family in Rajpur

Palampur, April 16

Rajpur of Kangra district has become the first panchayat to not have even a single BPL family.

At its annual gram sabha on Monday, members of the panchyat reviewed the status and income of all BPL families and it was found that not even a single family belonged to the category.

Later, the gram sabha decided to delete all BPL families from the list.

The People’s Voice, an NGO, said it was a good decision as hundreds of undeserving persons were availing the benefits under various BPL schemes in the district. The selection of BPL families was under scanner. — OC
