No ration from Oct 1 without Aadhaar

Kasargod: The Public Distribution System(PDS) have notified that beneficiaries who fail to link Aadhaar to their Ration cards before Sept 30, will not be able to buy ration quota from October.

The notification follows directive from Union ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution making aadhaar mandatory for ration subsidies.

Several consumers have failed to be forthcoming about their aadhaar even as ration shops have collected aadhaar numbers of the broader majority.

The digital linking is aimed to ensure transparency, curb leakages and corruption within the PDS system and enable better food subsidy, officials  said.
