Modi govt’s biggest decision on ration card: Freedom in 73 years, shopkeepers will feel the pinch
Like mobile number portability (MNP), ration card can now be ported. Your number does not change to a mobile number and you can use it nationwide. Likewise, your ration card will not change in portability. This means that if you move from one state to another, then you can buy government rations from another state using your ration card.
Must be accompanied by ration card and Aadhaar card at the time of verification
Rationcards are checked for portability at PDS shops with an electronics point-of-sale device. Simply put, the beneficiaries are identified by an electronic point-of-sale device on their Aadhaar card. This requires accompanying the ration card and Aadhaar card at the time of verification.
Your verification has been done with Aadhaar number. Ration card holders from different states in Maharashtra will also get rations. This information was shared by Kailash Pagare, Controller, Food Supply Department. Ration card holders from 23 states included in the ‘One Nation-One Ration Card’ scheme will now be transferred to Maharashtra. They said they could also take advantage of it.
Can buy rations in any state of the country
Suppose Rajiv Kumar (fictional name) is a resident of Bihar and his ration card is also from Bihar. With this ration card, he can also buy government rations in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi or Mumbai at reasonable prices. It is clear that there will be no limits or binding rules. He can buy rations in any state of the country. The important thing is that no new ration card will be required for this. This means that only your old ration card will be valid for this.
One Nation One Ration Card Scheme was implemented
There have been many complaints for a long time that if a ration card holder is not getting ration from the shop, if he takes ration from any other place, his name will be cut off from the quota shop.
That is, if he takes the ration from another place, the name will be deducted from the quota shop and then the ration will not be received. That is why the One Nation One Ration Card scheme has been implemented. Customers can buy rations from anywhere as per their convenience.
