The main objective of One Nation One Ration Card Scheme is to ensure food security and giving freedom to beneficiaries to purchase ration from any PDS shop. Aadhar Ration Card linking will ensure that no person is deprived of getting subsidized food grains under Food Security Scheme when he migrates from one place to another. To ensure national portability of ration to benefit migrant workers, central govt. will start One Nation One Ration Card Scheme soon.

Accordingly, the linking of Ration Card with Aadhaar Card would reduce corruption and enable beneficiaries to get Rashan from any PDS shop across the country. In some states, One Nation One Ration Card is already functional in the name of Integrated Management of PDS (IMPDS). Union govt. is also planning to create a real time online database of ration cards on the lines of GSTIN.

In order to achieve the aim of national portability, it is necessary that ration cards issued by different states and union territories conform to a standard format. Accordingly, a format for standardised ration card has been prepared for issue of ration card under the NFSA.

National Portability by One Nation One Ration Card

Under the One Nation One Ration Card initiative, eligible beneficiaries would be able to avail their entitled foodgrains under the National Food Security Act (NFSA) from any Fair Price Shop in the country using the same ration card. National portability of Ration cards will ensure all beneficiaries especially the migrants in getting access to Public Distribution System (PDS) across the nation. So the Narendra Modi govt. is working towards the One Nation One Ration Card Scheme.

Implementation of One Nation One Ration Card Scheme

PDS is creating a central repository of Ration Cards to help national level de-duplication. People would get their quota of food grains from any PDS shop located nearby them in any district across the nation. Ration Card holders would not be tied to any of the PDS shop and thus would reduce their dependence on shop owners. The biggest beneficiaries would be migrant labourers who moves to other states to seek better job opportunities and will ensure their food security.

Digitization of ration card i.e linking of ration card with aadhar card is an essential process. The availability of PoS (Point of Sale) machines need to be ensured at all PDS shops to implement the 1 Nation 1 Ration Card scheme. The central govt. has set a target to complete the formalities of scheme within 1 year. Around 78% of Fair Price Shops (FPS) have so far been automated by installing electronic PoS devices.

IMPDS system is already applicable in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Telangana, Tripura and other states. Here people get rashan on subsidy from any district in state. Department of Food and Public Distribution is a lifeline for beneficiaries. Under this department, 612 lakh tonnes of food grains is stored in warehouses of CWC, SWC, FCI and private godowns and is distributed to 81 crore people annually. Under the NFSA, about 75 crore beneficiaries have been covered so far against the target of 81.35 crore people.

Other Initiatives along with Digitization of Ration Card in India

The central govt. is also working on some other initiatives along with the digitization of ration cards in India which are as follows:-

  1. Effective implementation of National Food Security Act
  2. End to end computerization
  3. Transparency in storage and distribution of foodgrains
  4. Synergising of all SWC, FCI and CWC depots with Depot Online System (DOS)

Information Technology must be used right from the time of purchase of foodgrains till distribution to increase overall efficiency.

    • Anil Modekar ji, if you have a ration card then you will be automatically included in One Nation One Ration Card Scheme. If you do not have any ration card, then apply for ration card of your respective state. The new 1 Nation 1 Ration Card Scheme does not requires any separate ration card for this scheme.

    • Jaywant Vyapari, if you have a ration card then you can simply use that particular ration card (irrespective of the state) to avail benefits of 1 Nation 1 Ration Card. If you do not have any ration card, then you must apply for the one applicable in your state.
