  20. Tocky jimomi says:

    Thanks to PM for introducing this scheme for the poor. But we need to authentic about the beneficiaries. Many people have TVs and live in the village. Many people having BPL cards live in well furnished house in town. Authorities concerned with identifying the true BPL will only help the scheme. If not big hands to drop in again.

  21. Junaid khan says:

    Sir, its good scheme should be appreciated. But since this scheme is launched there is a debate i have gone through on social media that government is not providing any remission in the money to be paid by a bpl women. Beneficiaries have to pay the remainig amount in installments. Like if at market rate a connection is of 7000 then bpl women has to pay say 1600 has to at the time pf connection and remainig amount has to pay in easy installments with intrest.
