    How can one be sure that she is illegible to get this assistance! this question is arising because since the Khadya Surakha yojona/Food Security Act has implemented in January 2016, there is no BPL & APL division, if the govt. have any other data in this regarding it should be available from public domain, otherwise relation between citizen & LPG distributors may be affected, hope the ministry or concerned authority will think about it.
