Verification of Digital Ration Cards from 1st February
SHIMLA- The Department of Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs has taken up the work for computerization of various works of Targeted Public Distribution System under e-PDS project. The work on digitization of ration cards based on the detailed information of the families as per Aadhar card number has already been taken up. The digital ration cards would soon be provided after the verification and de-duplication to the consumers.
A Spokesperson of the State Government said here today that most of the ration cards had been digitized and the work on addition/deletion had been started from 1 February, 2016 based on the claims and objections of the people. The lists of the ration card holders would be made available at panchayat ghars in rural areas and at fair price shops in urban areas for verification.
He appealed all the ration card holders to verify their entries at panchayats and fair price shops before collecting the ration. Those consumers, who had not filled up their forms for digitization of ration cards, could apply by visiting panchayats and office of Inspector, Food and Civil Supplies.
He said the process would last upto 29 February, 2016 and the consumers could make a free call on toll free number 1967 for further details.
