    That list of BPL families in Mumbai will be huge.
    Are you willing to pay Rs 2.00 per page for the list ?

    You need to file a RTI application with the PIOs of the:

    1. Civil Supplies Department, Govt. of Maharashtra (for BPL list)
    2. Department of Social Welfare, Govt. of Maharashtra (For list of schemes)

    Details of PIoa re available on the websites under the RTI link.
    If you cannot locate the PIO, just call up those offices and ask "Who is the PIO under RTI act 2005?"

    Your RTI Application has to be as per the RTI Rules and Fees for Maharashtra.
    These are available in the Guide section of the Portal: RTI Guide

    Please read the other articles in the Guide section as well as the links given in the FAQ here: RTI FAQ

    These will be of help to you during the RTI process.

    Yes, you can do that.
    Even for Mulund area only, there will be at least thousands of pages.

    They will not have the percentage figure on record, so that will not be given to you.
    For the schemes, it is better to contact the central office.

    You have to first decide:

    1. Why are you seeking this information ?
    2. What will you do with the information once you get it ?

    The answers to the above two questions will largely determine whom to ask for information and what information to ask for.

    I want to check whether schemes given by government are really given to BPL families or just on paper, and the whole fund is gone.

    Can u pls suggest some points how to get this information & from where ???

    thanks.

    Janak,

    Here's one way to frame your request to the Department of Social Welfare, Govt. of Maharashtra:

    1. What is the number of BPL ration card holders in Mumbai for each locality?
    2. What is the total distribution of commodities to ration card holders for the years 2009-10 and 2010-11 for each Mumbai locality?
    3. What are the overall amounts spent on BPL ration card holders in Mumbai for each subsidized commodity?

    Good luck and let us know how it goes.
    -John
