‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ to be effective nationwide from June 2020


The govt’s ‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ initiative that will largely cover migrant labourers and daily wagers will come into force across the country from June 1, 2020, Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said.

Under the initiative, eligible beneficiaries could avail their entitled food grains under the National Food Security Act from any Fair Price Shop using the same ration card.

This would be made available after biometric/Aadhaar authentication on ePoS (electronic Point of Sale) devices.
