Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PM-GKAY) is a scheme as part of Atmanirbhar Bharat Yojana to supply free food grains to poor. Around 80 crore people have got 5 kg free wheat/rice per person per month. This was over and above the regular monthly entitlements under National Food Security Act, 2013 (NFSA). Now central govt. has further extended the PMGKAY Scheme till December 2023 in accordance with NFSA for AAY / PHH beneficiaries.

Benefits of PM Garib Kalyan Ann Yojana

Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana is a food security welfare scheme announced by the Government of India in March 2020 and implemented from April 2020. The program is operated by the Department of Food and Public Distribution under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution.

The scheme aims to feed the poorest citizens of India by providing grain through the Public Distribution System, to all the priority households (ration card holders and those identified by the Antyodaya Anna Yojana scheme). The scale of this welfare scheme makes it the largest food security program in the world.

Who Can Avail Free Food Grains in PM-GKAY

Earlier farmers, women jan dhan account holders, MGNREGA workers, women SHGs, old age / widow / disabled pensioners, private employees, migrant workers and NFSA beneficiaries (AAY / PHH) were eligible in PMGKAY. Now this scheme is only applicable to AAY / PHH beneficiaries.

PM Garib Kalyan Ann Yojana 2023 with Ration Card / ID Proof

This new free food distribution scheme will work with any RC or ID to increase its coverage. As announced in the PM Garib Kalyan Yojana Package, govt. will provide food to NFSA / PHH beneficiaries. Each person will get 5 Kg rice / wheat per month. The free food distribution scheme will ensure adequate food supply to Antyodaya Anna Yojana and priority households who do not have required ration with them.
