Other Public Welfare Initiatives by Haryana State Govt.
Haryana govt. has taken a lead in implementing the central govt’s concept of One Nation, One Ration Card. Now all the migrant labourers coming to Haryana from other states will not require a separate ration card. Instead, migrant workers will be able to get their ration here through the online system with the same ration card. This scheme will be started for the migrants from all the states where ration card has been linked online with Aadhaar card.
Through this 1 Nation 1 Ration Card Scheme, all the eligible beneficiaries of National Food Security Act (NFSA) will be able to take their share of food grains from any fair price shop anywhere in the country using the same ration card. Haryana has made all kinds of preparations in this regard and now ration will be distributed to the beneficiaries under this portability system soon.
This new system will prove to be very beneficial for the migrants. With this, migrants will not have to get a new ration card after moving to another state, and there will be more transparency in the whole system. The central and state governments are determined to raise the standard of living of persons standing on the lowest rung.
