New Delhi (NVI): In order to facilitate the ‘One Nation-One Ration Card’ system, the Centre today launched a mobile app ‘Mera Ration’ which ration cardholders, particularly migrant beneficiaries, can use for identifying the nearest fair price shop, check details of their entitlement and recent transactions.
This app will benefit especially those ration card holders who move to new areas for livelihoods.
The app is developed by the government in association with NIC to facilitate various ONORC related services among National Food Security Act (NFSA) beneficiaries, particularly migrant beneficiaries, FPS dealers, and other relevant stakeholders, the Ministry of Consumer Affairs said in a statement.
Implementation of the One Nation-One Ration Card system ensures availability of ration to beneficiaries under the National Food Security Act (NFSA) and other welfare schemes, especially the migrant workers and their families, at any fair price shop (FPS) across the country.
The application is currently available in English and Hindi. The government also said that more functionalities will be added in the application with time to improve its utility and extend additional services.
