Q What were the challenges and business problems that led to implementing this project ?
The entire application was developed by NIC for computerization of BPL Census 2002 data and aimed at computerization of the survey data of the rural households and depending on parameters, provided the BPL list above the cut off point.
For the first time, the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India ordered that the BPL list would be dynamic and subject to change to a process of appeal. It was deemed proper to have a web based online monitoring system so as to enable the updation of the list from time to time. With the introduction of RTI, it was also necessary to pro-actively display the list to public so as to ensure that the names of ineligible persons could be deleted if the public files appeals against such an addition in the BPL list. In addition to this, with the new social security schemes being introduced, the demand for BPL list came from various quarters time and again.
In order to provide access to the BPL list by the government departments, a web based online monitoring system was considered most suitable. In order to identify a BPL family, a unique number was allotted. The project has facilitated online updation of BPL list based on the agreed process.
