new Delhi: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman gave information about the 20 crore economic package announced by PM Modi. He also gave details of the arrangement of one country-one ration card during this period. He told that this ration card can be used anywhere in the country. By August, 67 crore people will get the benefit.
According to information released by the government, 67 crore beneficiaries in 23 states with 83% population of PDS (Public Distribution System) will be covered by National Portability by August 2020.
Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur said that the government is going to make a provision of 3500 crore for the ration of 8 crore migrant laborers. Every month 2 months free 5-5 kg rice and wheat and 1 kg gram will be given to each family.
No ration card holder of the country is required to make any kind of online and offline application under the One Country One Ration Card Scheme. All the state and central governments will verify and link the ration cards of the beneficiaries with the Aadhar card on the phone as per the data available on their own.
After this, Integrated Management will make the data available under the Public Distribution System. By which all eligible citizens will be able to get their share ration from any corner of the country.
After the implementation of this scheme, if a person moves from one place to another, then he will not have any problem in taking ration. The migrant laborers will benefit more from this. Through this scheme, such people will get complete food security.
