 Free Ration Distribution Under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana 2021


Free Ration Distribution Under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana 2021 In Gujarat, the government will distribute free ration to around 3.25 crore needy people in the state from tomorrow in wake of 21 days lockdown.

Bair correspondent reports that the government has also announced to distribute one-month free ration to migrant workers from 4th April.

In view of the prevailing lockdown situation, the government will distribute essential ration to more than 66 lakhs Antyodaya families through around 17 thousand fair price shops.

Secretary to CM, Ashwini Kumar said, only 25 beneficiaries will be given ration at a time in order to maintain social distancing.

According to top government sources, as on April 1, India had pulses stocks of 1.4-1.5 million tonnes in its warehouses, which is lower than the buffer norm of 2 million tonnes.

Last year, when the Centre had decided to distribute 1 kg of free pulses per month to all the 200 million NFSA households, it was sitting on a huge pile of over 3 million tonnes.

However, this year, it so far does not have that luxury when it comes to pulses. Moreover, sources said pulses procurement by Nafed (the main agency that deals in pulses in India) has also not picked up as prices are ruling above the Minimum Support Price.

Dipa Sinha, academician and prominent member of the Right to Food Campaign, while welcoming the government's decision to distribute additional free food grains, wanted the scheme to be valid for six months at least starting May, as the distress due to Covid is expected to linger for long.
