E-verification is mandatory till 31st August, otherwise ration card will be transferred to non NFSC category.









 Ahmedabad: Under the National Food Security Act, free foodgrains are provided to the poor.  However, ration cards that have not been taken for more than six months have now been blocked.  The state's food and civil supplies department has placed such ration cards in the silent category.

 Holders of these ration cards will have to undergo e-verification otherwise they will be transferred to non-NFSC category.  More than two lakh ration cards have been blocked across Gujarat.

 Free foodgrains are being distributed to the poor through lockdown during the Corona period. Grains including chickpeas, wheat, rice are distributed from reasonably priced shops.  With regard to free food, the government is singing the praises that millions of people have been given free food.

 Now the state's Food and Civil Supplies Department has traced ration card holders who have not been able to get free foodgrains for the past six months.  Now the question arises, why the poor are not willing to take free food.  There is also a doubt as to why more than two lakh ration card holders do not come to buy foodgrains.

 In this regard, the number of ration card holders receiving free foodgrains under the National Food Security Act is a factor of more than 7 million.  There are more than two lakh ration card holders in Gujarat who have not taken foodgrains from reasonably priced shops under this scheme for the last six months.

 The state's Food and Civil Supplies Department has instructed all collectors and district supply officers to verify such ration card holders by August 31.  If e-verification is not done, the ration card will be placed in the category of non-NFSC.  At present, the ration cards of cardholders who have not received foodgrains for more than six months in the state have been put on the disabled list.

 Government insults Gujaratis by giving false figures of free food: Congress

 Despite having ration cards, 3 lakh Gujarati families have expressed their gratitude for not getting free foodgrains.  The Congress alleges that the BJP government claimed that in May-June 2021, 71 lakh households received free foodgrains.
