Hisar: Even the top brains of the country can be left in an obfuscated condition after going through the records of the Supply office of Hisar district at Haryana. Gross anomalies in the making of Below Poverty Line (BPL) ration cards depict a startling picture of the lackadaisical attitude of the district authorities.

If the official records are to be believed, the daily income of few families is 10 paisa per day, whereas there are 756 families in the region which have a per day income between Rs 10 and Rs 13.50.

The residents of Pratap Nagar, Raja Garden and Mela Ground who come under ward number 7 have been exempted from all the benefits of the government scheme. In a survey conducted in 2008, it was found that there were 1461 Above Poverty Line (APL) families and 756 BPL families in the ward which sums up that around 30 percent people come under the BPL category.

Even though all the aforesaid areas paint a glossy picture that there is no sign of poverty, the official survey reveals that people in these areas earn Rs 10 to Rs 20 as a daily income.

In the BPL list, there are few people who with a earning of 10 paisa or 20 paisa have to bear the expenses of the family of six members. People earning Rs 7, Rs 5 or Rs 3 per day and people having a daily income of Rs 167 and Rs 375 have also been included in the list.

Even the government employees and owners of dairies feature in the BPL list.
