TNPDS Official website :

Tamil Nadu state follows universal TNPDS where the categorizations like Below Poverty Line (BPL), Above Poverty Line (APL) do not exist. However, the Tamil Nadu government has discovered AAY and currently has 18, 63,185 beneficiaries of AAY. Such an initiatory was taken in charge since poverty is a relative concept, there is no acceptable criterion or methodology for error-free reckoning, as the indexing method is also not free from defects.
