The Chairman of AP State Civil Supplies Corporation Mallela Linga Reddy said here today that the new ration cards will be issued by Ugadi.
‘Everyone who has applied for a ration card would get it. The Government wants to see everyone in the State has a ration card – ration card is a great benefit to the card holder. It does not entail just the essential commodities but a house site, scholarship, house and other benefits from the government. Each family would get a benefit worth Rs.5 lakh to Rs.10 lakh, he said at a press conference.
On the ePass problem, he said that a few thousands among the 1.40 crore ration card holders faced the problem and hence it could not be termed as a big problem. The corporation was ready to spend Rs.100 crore on construction of godowns and would sanction fund to each district depending on its needs said Linga Reddy.
