Hyderabad: Ration card candidates in city favor fast enrollments
Hyderabad: With the State government’s choice to proceed the circulation of 10 kg rice to allocate card owners till December, declined provision card owners doubt regarding when the enrollment for brand-new provision cards will certainly start as lots of qualified card owners are being denied of availing the cost-free rice. Vexed with the lengthy pending concern, couple of recipients and also social lobbyists asked for the Civil Supplies division to start the enrollment procedure quickly.
“In tune with the Centre Government decision to provide 5 kg rice under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana (PMGKY) to beneficiaries of ration cards, the State government also took a initiative to distribution 10 kg rice. It is a good initiative but many beneficiaries are still eagerly waiting to get their new ration cards. No notification has also been released yet for the new card application. The state government should expand the Public Distribution System (PDS) to issue more ration cards and immediately start accepting new ration card applications. It is the government’s responsibility to accept the applications 365 days but not occasionally to ensure that the right food reaches the poor under National Food Security Act (NFSA). Apart from free rice, it will be better if State government also provide other essential commodities at PDS including pulses, edible oil, wheat flour on affordable price,” claimed S Q Masood, social lobbyist.
“Being a beneficiary, I am unable to avail the free rice, as I don’t have a ration card. I am vexed with sending various representation letters to the Civil Supplies department to begin the registration for new ration cards. We have been waiting for the registration of new ration cards to start but no steps have been taken yet, said Rahul Rao, a beneficiary.
“My card obtained declined 2 years back. We are qualified for availing a supply card however the government did rule out my demand and also my card obtained declined without specifying any kind of factor. We are been denied of availing different assets,” claimed B Kasthuri, one more recipient.
