Chandigarh, Sep 3: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said the genuine BPL families, who might have been left out in the lists made on the basis of a 2007 survey, could submit their representations by September 30.

''The persons who are still aggrieved could submit their representations to the concerned Additional Deputy Commissioners and Block Development Panchayat Officers (BDPOs) by September 30.

The officers had been instructed to dispose of these representations by October 15,'' he said while talking to the mediapersons at press lobby of Haryana Vidhan Sabha.

He said if the name of an ineligible person had been included in the list, a complaint should be made against him. In case, the administration came to know of such cases suo motu, appropriate decision would be taken by giving an opportunity of hearing to such persons.

He said the villagers and urbanites had already been given a period of two months to file their appeals/objections before finalising the list.

The families, whose objections/claims were found to be substantial, had also been included in the BPL list. He said the opportunities to file appeals/objections had been given to the people with a view to ensuring that no ineligible person should be included in the list and an eligible person must not be left out.

Mr Hooda said, ''In total there are 47.59 lakh families in Haryana. Out of these 12.96 lakh are BPL families. Of these, 8.58 lakh are rural families and 4.38 lakh urban families. Out of the total BPL families, 5.55 lakh are SC families and 4.08 lakh BC families. Thus SC and BC BPL families account for 9.63 lakh in the state.''
