bpl and apl

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has approved additional allocation for 50 lakh tonnes of rice for distribution to Below Poverty Line (BPL) families at BPL prices and Above Poverty Line (APL) means for BPL and APL families the price for the period July, 2014 to March, 2015 or till implementation of the National Food Security Act (NFSA) by the respective State/UT whichever is earlier.
This will mitigate the problems of the people due to inflation in food prices, particularly in those States/UTs where the NFSA has not been implemented so far.
The allocation is approved in view of the persistent demand from States/Union
Territories for more foodgrains to meet their Targeted Public Distributed System (TPDS) requirements.
