Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, July 8: Secretary Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs, (FCS&CA) Simrandeep Singh, Wednesday reviewed implementation of One Nation One Ration Card scheme and Aadhar seeding of ration cards in J&K. Various officers of the FCS&CA Department along with State Project Management Unit (SPMU) under Integrated Management of Public Distribution System (IM-PDS) attended the meeting. Secretary reviewed the targets that each district is required to meet to successfully roll out the scheme as per the timelines set by the government. It was informed that the J&K has to achieve 100% Aadhaar seeding of all Ration Cards up to the beneficiary level, for successfully rolling out the One Nation One Ration Card scheme.
As on date, Kulgam, Anantnag, Shopian, Kishtwar, Pulwama and Ramban have achieved more than 90 percent Aadhar linking of ration cards.
However, Srinagar, Baramulla, Reasi and some districts of Jammu province have low percentage of Aadhar seeding. The Secretary informed that the department has been working on mission mode on this scheme since last one month. The current percentage of Aadhaar seeding at Ration Card level is 87%, whereas at beneficiary level the seeding percentage is 71%.
In the last 20 days, the Food & Civil Supplies Department has been able to link Aadhaar of nearly two lakh beneficiaries.
It is pertinent to mention that One Nation One Ration Card scheme trials were successfully held in Anantnag, Shopian, Baramulla, Budgam, Kupwara, Kulgam, Doda, Samba, Udhampur, Rajouri, Kathua and Jammu districts yesterday and a number of NFSA beneficiaries from the state of Uttar Pradesh were provided ration at all these districts of J&K. One Nation One Ration Card scheme has to be rolled out in J&K in phased manner from July, 2020 to August, 2020. The beneficiaries of J&K will also be required to draw their ration only after authentication of their biometrics at the Fair Price Shops, from the month of September, 2020 onwards. This will lead to disbursement of ration as per actual beneficiaries existing on ground.
