Due to this, new ration cards cannot be made, but now the UP government has started the cancellation program of ration cards in the state. According to the order issued by the UP government, the names of the ineligible people will be deducted from the list of ration cards, and now only the needy will get the benefit of free rations.
It has already started in different districts of UP. In fact, according to the 2011 census, the government’s target of making ration cards has been fulfilled. In such a situation, new ration cards cannot be made.
What is the rule if a cardholder has a plot / flat or house of 100 square meters earned from his income, four-wheeler car/tractor, arms license, family income of more than two lakhs in the village and three lakhs annually in the city, then such People cannot take advantage of the cheap ration scheme of the government?
The urban population has doubled in 2022 as compared to 2011.
In place of the cancelled ineligible people’s cards, the new needy are being given the benefit of the ration scheme. Names are being added to the national food security based on the population ratio of the year 2011. Let us tell you that the city’s population has doubled in 2022 compared to 2011.
Census not conducted in 2021 due to Corona Census
2021 could not be done due to an increase in Corona cases. Increasing the population ratio for national food security has become necessary in this situation. Based on this, the urban poor will benefit from the scheme.
In such a situation, the new ration card applications coming to the district supply office and tehsil level supply office of the state are submitted. After that, based on investigation, the ineligible ration cards are cancelled, and the ration cards of the eligible are made in their place.
For this, the ineligible have to wait for months. Departmental sources say that preparations are on to increase the target of 2011 based on population growth. Therefore, the work of making new ration cards has been stopped.
