BPL Families in India



BPL stands for Below Poverty Line.

BPL used by the government of India as a benchmark for measuring the economic status of the country.

According to Government of India, about 40% of families are in Below Poverty Line.

We Indian's do also have a website to study and know about the BPL families across our states. http://bpl.nic.in/ (LAST UPDATED 2002)

Most of the links under http://bpl.nic.in/ are not updated.

Please don't ask me, then how come the estimate 40%. You should probably ask the persons who estimated and updated in WIKI.
