No eligible beneficiary will be deprived ration- Girish Bapat

Min GIRISH BAPAT PRESS 1

Mumbai: None of the eligible beneficiary will be deprived of the ration from any fair price ration shops. This was made clear by the Food and Civil Supplies Minister Shri Girish Bapat..

Shri Bapat informed that all the concerned have been instructed in order to ensure that none of the eligible beneficiary is deprived from getting the ration . Accordingly if Adhar authentication of any member has been effected through the PoS machine in the fair price shop, then the ration will be distributed to that family. If Adhar notification is not effected then ration will be distributed after E-KYC is got done.. The member whose Adhar seeding is not done can avail ration after getting his e KYC done . In case none of the three alternatives are feasible, then ration distribution can be done on the basis of Adhar auathentication of the Route Nominee.

If the data on the ration card is not available on the PoS machine , the food distribution will be done after obtaining any one of the identity documents as specified on the website of the Department viz ration card, Adhar Registration copy, Government indentity card / Bank passbook with photo affixed on it, etc in respect of all the members mentioned in the ration card. However this option can be exercised only once.

Instructions have been issued that if the District Collector / Ration Controlling Officer Mumbai has declared “NO NETWORK FPS” then food grains may be distributed till alternative arrangements are effected. He instructed to meticulously implement the instructions and ensure that none of the eligible beneficiary is deprived of the ration from any fair price ration shops.
