Gram Panchayats to issue BPL certificates in Himachal

Shimla: BPL (Below Poverty Line) certificates would now be issued by the concerned Gram Panchayat Pradhan as per the new pattern which would save both time and money. BPL certificate will empower the Panchayats and reduce the delay in issuance of certificates to the beneficiaries, especially when done at the grass root level. The certificate will be issued on the basis of the Panchayat record, which would be countersigned by the Pradhan of the concerned Gram Panchayat.
Penal action would be taken against the certificate issuing authority in case the certificate, so issued is found incorrect while the person availing the benefit of such certificate would be dismissed from service and a criminal case would be lodged against such person. The Government has also decided to delegate adequate powers to Panchayati Raj Institutions to speed up the development at the grass-root level. 50 per cent reservation to the women in such institutions and bodies has already been decided upon.
