Deadline to finalise BPL list

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Minister for Local Self-government Paloli Mohammed Kutty has directed the civic chiefs to finalise the below poverty line (BPL) list before June 30. Mr. Kutty said in a release here on Tuesday that if the panchayats failed to finalise and handover the list before June 30 by holding the grama sabhas, the BPL families may not get their ration cards. Grama panchayats would be held responsible for the lapse. Majority grama panchayats had finalised the list. Grama sabhas should be held in all wards and the list should be ready before the deadline expired, he said. — Special Correspondent
