PM Modi Launched One Nation One Ration Card Scheme: A blog on the benefits and guidelines of the scheme.

The Indian Government launched the 'One Nation, One Ration Card' scheme in 2019. As many as 32 states and UTs have so far implemented the 'One Nation One Ration Card' plan which seeks to give over 80 crore beneficiaries under the National Food Security Act (NFSA). Through the ONOR scheme, the beneficiary can get ration at any ration shop across the country. The idea of this scheme is to ensure all beneficiaries can easily get their ration from any PDS shop without much effort

The 'One Nation, One Ration Card' scheme is aimed at the migrant population who are mainly outside of their own state. Many migrants face difficulty in procuring ration from their own state because they do not have a ration card of that state, and because other states are less aware of this scheme.

Who is eligible for the One Nation One Ration Card?

Eligibility of one nation one ration will be targeted to bring uniformity across the country. The scheme aims at transferring food grains to below poverty line (BPL) families to bridge the gap in effective price between the minimum support price (MSP) and market prices, by providing subsidy at 42% of the difference. The scheme is targeted at 6 crore BPL households, who have ration cards across the country.

Eligibility of one nation one ration is applicable to both urban and rural areas. The scheme of one nation one ration will benefit 2 crore (20 million) families, approximately 25 crore (250 million people). The beneficiaries will be identified on the basis of their Aadhar based identification through the electronic point of sale (PoS) device.

Indian government launched 'Mera Ration' app for ‘one nation one ration’ Scheme

Narendra Modi Government has launched ‘Mera Ration App’ for One Nation One Ration Card beneficiaries to get subsidized food grains. The app will connect all the users with their online database. The app is available in google play store and soon in AppStore

Migrant workers will now get the benefits of subsidy in the same locality where they have been registered, by using this app. In addition to this, beneficiaries under NFSA, ASHA workers, Anganwadi workers and other members of Self Help Groups (SHGs) can also use this facility directly from their own smartphone installed with the Mera Ration App.

The App is currently available in English and Hindi. More functions will be added in-app in the coming days or months. The App will be soon available in 14 languages.

Benefits of Mera Ration app:

  • Mera Ration helps you locate nearby Fair Price Shops (FPS).
  • Helps to check your foodgrain entitlement status on the go.
  • Through this app, migrants can also register their migration details.
  • You can search all FPS within a radius to find out which shops are near you.
  • The next time you visit your Fair Price Shop to buy ration, verify your latest transactions through the app so that no unauthorized purchases are made.
