Panic Over Unavailability of Ration For All Card Holders: Here is a Clarification Over the Supply

Deputy Director, Food and Civil Supplies, Ramya C.R said that people need not panic as ration will be available in all ration shops till the end of this month. For the month of May, Dakshina Kannada district has received 5,825 tonnes of rice under the National Food Security Act. It has also received 501 tonnes of wheat. As much as 170 tonnes of rice has arrived for APL card holders under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY). Under PMGKAY, each member of Antyodaya and Priority Household ration cards will get additional 5 kg rice during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Ms. Ramya said that ration shops have been asked to issue coupons to around 150 persons per day and issue ration to them. If there are more people standing in queue even at 10 a.m shops have been asked to issue ration to all of them and not send back any one empty-handed, she said. Card holders are being asked to buy ration from shops closer to their houses as it will be easy for them to carry the material back home.
