Ration received on the card only on the basis of the poor without ration card will now stop. Its deadline is 30 November.
PMGKAY Scheme: Only four days are left for the completion of Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana. During the corona virus epidemic, in March, the government announced the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana as part of the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Package. In this, 80 crore ration card holders were being provided food grains for free, now the scheme will end on November 30.
If no one has taken advantage of this scheme then only four days are left. You can take advantage of this. Now the government will not take it forward. In this scheme, there is a provision of giving 5 kg of wheat or rice and one kg of gram to a family. This 5 kg grain is available free of cost, in addition to the existing quota of grains on regular ration card. This (Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana) was extended till Diwali and Chhath Puja. That is, the benefit of this scheme can be availed only till 30 November 2020. After this the plan is being ended.
Citing sources from the Department of Food and Public Distribution under the Union Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public, it has been revealed that there is no thought of extending the scheme after November 30.
Let me tell you, you do not need a ration card to get food grains under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana. Under this scheme, the needy get ration. But registration has to be done for this scheme through your Aadhaar card. On registration they are given a slip. One gets free grain by showing it.
