◕ ONE NATION ONE RATION CARD
Last updated on 29th June, 2019

ONE NATION ONE RATION CARD
Food Minister Mr. Ram Vilas Paswan said the government is moving towards One nation one ration card. Mr. Paswan discussed various issues on National Food Security Act.
The officials of
Food Corporation of India (FCI),
Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC) and
State Warehousing Corporation (SWC) were present there.
According to officials almost 612 lakh tonnes of food grains, stored in warehouses of FCI, CWC, SWC and private godowns are distributed among 81 crore people annually.

Aim and Effect:
'One nation, one ration card' will ensure all beneficiaries, especially migrants, can access PDS (public distribution system) across the nation from any ration shop of their own choice. This will provide freedom to them as well as this will reduce their dependence on a particular ration shop. As a result, corruption may reduce on ration shops. Moreover this will help to those migrant labourers who move to other states to seek better job opportunities and will ensure their food security.

Already implemented:
The Integrated Management of PDS(IMPDS) system is already there in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Telangana and Tripura.
