There were 2, 19, 42,003 families surveyed in Bihar and 1, 25, 55,510 (57%) identified as BPL. The last exercise was conducted in 2008 to cleanses the BPL list. Even after this exercises there still remain various doubts among the citizens about the genuineness of the BPL data. There is necessity of an ICT intervention to sanitize the existing BPL data. A Pilot project is taken up for 2 Gram Panchayat namely Ninoh and Amthu in Kako Block of Jehanabad District.
A web based application is designed to facilitates effective sanitization of the BPL data of the aforementioned demography. Features like Query based Search, Families surveyed data, Inclusion/Exclusion reports, Tag BPL members with schemes and last but not the least MIS and GIS reports, make it the closest to accuracy.
