The death of the person registered in the ration card or by giving wrong information will now be punished for taking so many years: In many states of the country, the work of adding and removing names to the ration card is going on at this time. Many state governments have also intensified the police investigation in the case of fraud in the ration card. If a person gets a false name in the ration card or even after the death of the person registered in the ration card, strict action has started on taking ration of his quota. The investigation of this type of fraud has been started by the recovery department. The Food Supply Department is also arresting the accused by registering a case under the sections of cheating. So if you now make a ration card with the wrong documents or take a ration in the wrong name, you can now face both jail and a fine.
It is compulsory to fulfill certain conditions for making a ration card
Let it be said that it is mandatory to fulfill certain conditions for making a ration card, but people submit wrong documents to get below the poverty line or Antyodaya Yojana to get a ration card. Making fake ration cards is a punishable offense under the Food Security Act of the Government of India. If you are found guilty of making a fake ration card, then you may have to pay five years in jail and a fine. With this, if you bribe the Food Department official to get the card made or the Food Department official makes a ration card after taking the bribe, then there is a provision for punishment and fine in this case too.
One Nation One RationCard Portability Facility implemented
The central government has implemented a One Nation One RationCard portability facility across the country. Till now almost all the states and union territories of the country have been covered by this facility. Through this facility, consumers can now get ration in other states as well. For this, now it is not necessary for that person to be a resident of that state. With this decision of the central government, the people of the country can now get ration easily in any state. Especially for the people living below the poverty line, this scheme of the central government is very effective.
Government strict about fake ration card
Ration card is also a recognized government document of the Government of India. With the help of ration cards, people can buy food grains (wheat, rice, and pulses) from the fair price shops at a much lower price than the market price under the public distribution system. There are usually three types of ration cards made in India. People living above the poverty line are given APL, BPL for those living below the poverty line, and Antyodaya ration cards for the poorest families.
