Odisha government implements One Nation One Ration card scheme across State

The Odisha government has implemented the one nation one ration card scheme. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched the scheme across the state yesterday.

The scheme allows the beneficiaries to lift his or her quota of food grains from any of the fair price shops of his or her choice, both within and outside the state. Inside the state alone, the beneficiaries will have more than 10000 fair price shops for their ration, to choose from.

The state government also launched a vitamin-added rice distribution scheme under the public distribution system in the tribal dominated and remote district of Malkangiri as a pilot project yesterday.  The scheme is supposed to address the nutritional needs, particularly of the women and children.

The one nation one ration scheme by ensuring local accessibility of food grains across the nation, also ensures ease of living for millions of the poor and the needy.
