THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Civil Supplies Department plans to increase the e-ration card programme to your entire state by April. The pilot part of the mission was launched within the North City Rationing Office in Thiruvananthapuram on February 12. The programme is to provide downloadable ration cards to candidates. The digital card is helpful, only one web page, and could be downloaded in panorama or portrait codecs. Beneficiaries can laminate them. The panorama model might be a bit massive in dimension and could be handy for senior residents.
In the primary part, that’s when the mission is prolonged to the entire of the state, e-cards might be given to candidates for brand new ration cards. At current, all ration card purposes need to be submitted on-line.
Either the beneficiary can submit the applying by the citizen login on the division web site or by Akshaya centres. The utility charges could be paid by the federal government’s e-treasury portal. The sanctioned cards could be downloaded by the identical logins.
The division can be planning to transform all standard e-book cards to e-cards in phases. The technical help is supplied by the National Informatics Centre. Unlike the traditional card, e-card doesn’t have a provision for ration store sellers to mark the month-to-month buy of products. Officers stated the marking has change into irrelevant after the implementation of Aadhaar-linked biometric punching.
