Ration card holders will get extra sugar and cottonseed oil pouches
The state government has decided to provide 1 kg sugar and 1 liter padded oil pouches in addition to the prescribed quantity to the ration card holders in view of Deepawali festivals. BPL card holders will get an additional 1 kg sugar at Rs 1 per kg and Antyodaya card holders Rs 15 per kg, while a spoonful of sour oil will cost Rs 20 per liter.
The next Diwali is on 15 November. In view of this, the supply department has decided to provide pouches of sugar and cotton oil for the festival in the month of November. The city of Ahmedabad has a total of 2,8,000 NFSA card holders. There are a total of 6 fair price shops in the city from where this quantity can be obtained.
In this regard, according to the managers of ration shops, the quantity for the month of November has not reached the ration shops in the city till 30 October. So that from 1 November, it is not possible to distribute the announced extra quantity for the festival, in addition to the fixed quantity.
Usually the supply for that month reaches the fair price shops by the last week of the following month. However, the month of November has not arrived yet. Hence the fear of creating a distribution problem is being served.
In this regard, according to the officials of the supply department, the work of supplying supplies to the ration shops is going on. There will be no problem in delivery in the month of November.
