So let’s know about the announcement made by the state government and who will get double ration
The Chief Minister of the state has announced to give double ration to all yellow ration card holders. Further, in the recently released budget, the Central Financial Institution has announced the extension of the Garib Kalyan scheme by 1 year.
What is the eligibility for double ration
The government has started the process of making new ration cards from January 1, 2023. For this, the government has kept some qualifications, if you follow those qualifications, only you can get your ration card. Candidate must be below poverty line to get BPL ration card in the state. Annual family income of the candidate should be less than ₹ 1.80 lakh.
Let us inform that Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana was launched by Central Government in April 2020 during Corona period. Under this scheme, 5 kg ration per person will be provided free of cost to poor families. Since the launch of the scheme, it has been extended 7 times and now in Budget 2023, the Prime Minister Garib Kalyan scheme has been extended by 1 year by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. The central government will bear the cost of this project of Rs 2 lakh crore. This scheme has been announced in the Haryana State Government and in a few days it will be implemented in the Karnataka State as well. We will inform you as soon as this plan is released.
About 1. 6 lakh people below the poverty line — all eligible beneficiaries — have been denied benefits under the state’s Ayushman Bharat-Arogya Karnataka (AB-ArK) health assurance scheme because they could not get a ration card on time.
While their credentials were verified, they have been waiting for nearly two years to be enrolled in the scheme which provides Rs 5 lakh per year towards hospitalisation costs per beneficiary family.
Authorities have periodically weeded out bogus ration cards, with more than three lakh illegal cards being cancelled in March this year. And yet the issue continues to remain a huge bugbear — to the point that people are being denied funds for medical treatment. The city and country have made giant strides in technology, and yet servers in government departments do not function. It is a sad situation and one that needs to be rectified immediately. If the government has hit a wall, it should not shy away from roping in domain experts to resolve the problem.
D Randeep commissioner of health and family welfare said BPL families must have an Aadhaar-linked ration card to be eligible for ABArK benefits. But technical issues have denied these beneficiaries a ration card.
The snag comes at a time when the health department is looking to issue AB-ArK cards to all ration card holders by March 31. The department aims to cover 50% of ration card holders by December and chief minister Basavaraj Bommai is likely to be present at a function to mark the milestone.
But a source in the food and civil supplies department, which issues ration cards, said their servers operate for only a few hours a day, and many who show up withall the documents — gathered after a huge struggle — are unable to register. Mohan, a service provider, says some 50% of people who apply for a ration card do not get it because of this issue.
Illegal cardsData from the food and civil services department also shows many eligible beneficiaries cannot get a ration card because of the high number of ineligible people who have acquired BPL ration cards. Of the more than 2. 7 lakh existing applications, only 1. 5 lakh were found to be eligible.
“These numbers are way over the Centre’s target to provide people with food grains,” a source said. “Benefits for the excess beneficiaries will have to be funded by the state and for that we need state government approval for an additional budget. A proposal was sent to the government in September this year. ”
Kanagavalli M, commissioner, food and civil supplies department, said a file has been approved and a government order will be issued soon. The department will begin issuing ration cards after that.
could provide relief to ration cardholders. Eligible cardholders (Antyodaya and other families that qualify) under the National Food Security Act would receive five additional kilogrammes of free food grains per family member until November this year under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana or PMGKY.
The fourth phase of the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana (Free Ration Card 2021) was approved on June 23 during the Union Cabinet meeting led by Narendra Modi. The Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana ration is distinct from what is given under the National Food Security Act (NFSA) ration, and is free.
The National Food Security Act 2013 provides ration under two different systems.
