The Department of Food and Public Distribution says meetings are being held with states over the past six months to change standards. New standards are drawn up in view of the proposals made by the states. These will soon be completed and implemented, after which only eligible people will be able to benefit from these standards.
One Nation One ration Card Scheme

Good news for ration card holders: Ration card rules – Change
Before the election to the parish and after the new form of Corona, the state governments try to provide maximum facilities for the public. Recently, the government of Uttar Pradesh has decided to provide free ration along with sugar until March to the ration card holders. Subsequently, the Himachal Pradesh government has also decided to give refined oil 10 rupees cheaper to the ration card consumers.
In fact, the state government has reduced import duties on refined oil by 5 percent. Which will directly benefit 19 lakh ration card consumers in Himachal Pradesh. Let’s tell you that at present ration card consumers are getting refined oil at a rate of Rs 137 per liter. Which is now likely to reach up to 125 Rs. According to information from Food Supplies Corporation, the import duty was previously 17.5 percent, which has now come down to 12.5 percent.
These items are available at rationing dealers. In Himachal Pradesh, ration card consumers receive three kg of legumes, two liters of oil (refined and mustard), sugar and salt from the government. Of which flour and rice are supplied by the center to the Land Government. On the other hand, the state government provides other foods to consumers. Together with this, the government determines the price of goods other than flour and rice every three months. The direct benefit is given to ration card consumers.
Benefit will be available in UP
It is noteworthy that the prices of legumes and mustard oil have already registered a decline in the state. There is now an opportunity for a fall in the price of refined oil. Food Minister Rajendra Garg said that import duties have been reduced. In such a situation, the price of refined will also fall. Applications are sought from companies regarding the procurement in January. This will clarify the situation. Its benefit will only be given to the holder of the ration card.
