AP Income Certificate Apply Online, Application Form, Validity Status
The AP Government has taken another key Decision. Government, while taking into consideration of the views of Departments, has decided to issue specific orders afresh on issuance of income certificates by the Tahsildars/ Deputy Tahsildars, despite issued orders, as the Govt. recently issued Rice Cards to BPL families in lieu of Ration Cards, based on 6 step validation for the same income criteria identification, so as to reduce the hardship to public with respect to requirement of Income Certificate for selecting BPL beneficiaries to various programme.
Dharmana Krishna Das formally assumed charge as Deputy Chief Minister (Revenue, Registration and Stamps) on 19th July, 2020. He signed on two files — one on increasing validity of income certificate to four years and another on negating the need for producing income certificate by rice card-holders (BPL) for various government schemes.
