Govt. Schemes, Bank loans etc, so that to remove hardships for BPL beneficiaries. The requirement of Income certificate for various purposes are as follows:
(i) The validity of Income Certificate shall be for a period of Four (4) years.
(ii) No Government Department selecting BPL beneficiaries shall ask for an Income Certificate as long as beneficiary produces White Ration Card. The white Card shall be proof for any person to be treated as BPL individual. No separate Income Certificate need be insisted in such cases.
(iii) The Income Certificate for Scholarships or for any other scheme where Income limit prescribed is more than the BPL category be insisted only for the first time and not for renewals.

3. Accordingly, a meeting was conducted with various Head of the Departments, District Collectors/Joint Collectors/RDOs and other field functionaries was conducted to examine and discuss the issue to arrive at ways to reduce hardship to public with respect to requirement of Income certificate for various purposes.

i. No State Government Department and corporations/ Institution/State PSUs/ selecting BPL beneficiaries shall ask for an Income Certificate as long as beneficiary produces White Ration Card.
