The government would scrutinise the appeal and resolve the issues by November 30.

"It is the duty and responsibility of each legislator to help every single woman head, who meets the criteria of the scheme (of providing a financial assistance of Rs.1000 per month). Those who did not apply and those applications rejected can appeal, " the minister said.

Responding to the issues flagged by AIADMK legislators RB Udhayakumar, Congress legislator JG Prince and CPI (M) legislator VP Nagai Malli that several eligible persons were left out of the scheme, Udhayanidhi assured that "not a single eligible person would be left out of the scheme".

He recalled that the guidelines of the scheme have been amended to cover women heads of families with persons with disability, availing old age pension and transgenders.
