If you are a ration card holder, then this news is very helpful for you. A new rule has been made by the Govt. to surrender the ration card under certain conditions. Ignoring these rules can cost a person to be fined. Not only this but legal action can also be taken against the person
Actually, during the Corona epidemic (Covid-19), the government started giving free rations to poor families. But it has come to the notice of the government that many ration cardholders are not eligible and thus, they are taking advantage of free ration. At the same time, many cardholders eligible for the scheme are not getting its benefit.
In such a situation, ineligible people are being asked to surrender the ration card immediately through the officials. If any ineligible person does not surrender the ration card, then legal action will be taken against them after investigation.
If someone has a plot of more than 100 square meters, flat or house, four-wheeler vehicle or tractor, family income of more than two lakhs in the village and three lakhs in the city, then such people should surrender their ration cards in the Tehsil and DSO office as soon as possible.
According to information, if the ration card is not surrendered by the person taking illegal advantage of it, then the card of such people will be canceled after scrutiny. Also, legal action will be taken against that family. Not only this, if the beneficiary has not taken the ration, the ration card will also be recovered.
