NEW DELHI: The most vulnerable migrants in cities such as the destitute, maids, security guards and sex workers, who don’t have ration cards due to lack of current residence proof, can now get ration cards to avail themselves of subsidised foodgrains under the National Food Security Act (NFSA). The food ministry on Friday launched a “common registration facility” to enable such people to get themselves registered.
The ministry said this initiative can bring nearly 1.58 crore more people under the food security net. The new facility also enables “ration card-mitras” – employers, NGOs, individuals, municipal or panchayat representatives, and recognised government bodies – to get such vulnerable people registered on the portal since they may not know how to apply online.
The common registration facility is an initiative to collect data of people desirous of registering for inclusion under the NFSA anywhere in the country. TOI, on December 26, had first reported the Centre’s plan to launch the online facility.
“People can register on behalf of the vulnerable persons by providing necessary details. The update about the registration and the status of application will be sent to the email accounts and mobile phone number of those who applied,” said Union food secretary Sudhanshu Pandey.
To begin with, 11 states, including Punjab, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Assam and Meghalaya, will be covered under this initiative and soon all other states and UTs will be brought in.
