How To Convert APL Card Into BPL Card

How To Convert APL Card Into BPL Card: The Haryana Human Rights Commission has sought a report from the State’s Chief Secretary for not updating the list of Below Poverty Line (BPL) families in Haryana for over the past nine years, saying that it was a “gross violation of human rights” of the eligible candidates.

Last survey in 2007
The last survey to identify BPL households in the State’s rural areas was conducted in 2007. As per the survey, 8,58,389 rural households, which is around 27.17 % of the total 31,59,222 rural families, were below the poverty line.

The commission’s chairperson Justice S.K. Mittal and member Deep Bhatia passed the order on Thursday in a case pertaining to non-inclusion of the names of the complainants, residents of Haryana’s Rewari, in the BPL list despite the applicants being eligible for the same.

It was when the commission sought a report in this regard from the district administration that the Deputy Commissioner, Rewari, told the panel that as per the Chief Executive Officer of the District Council, no fresh names were added to the BPL list after 2009.

The official, in his reply, further told the commission that as per the council’s report, the issue with regard to the inclusion of the eligible candidates in the BPL list was under active consideration of the government.

“The report further reveals that the department has not received any instructions for adding the names of the eligible candidates in the BPL list from the government and the action in this regard will be taken only when they received instructions from the government,” said the two-page order of the commission.

‘Injustice to the poor’
Taking strong exception to the fact that the matter with regard to the inclusion of the names in the BPL list was pending with the government for the past nine years, the commission said that non-inclusion of the names of the poor eligible candidates to the BPL record for so long brought “hardship” and “injustice” to them and they were “being deprived of their benefits, which is a gross violation of their human rights”.

The commission also observed that nine years was a “long time for non-registering the fresh eligible candidates in the BPL list”, thus depriving the poor of the benefits of the various State and Central government schemes.
