Ration Card Eligibility

In order to have a Ration Card for you or your family, you need to fulfill below terms/criteria:

Indian Citizen: Only Indian Citizens can be issued a valid, genuine Ration Card. In case you are not an Indian but have plans to settle down here then better to wait for the time when you get Indian Nationality or in case you want it early then I will suggest you to head over to nearby Food and Supply Office and have direct chat with official authorities. They can guide you better. Please do not indulge yourself in getting a fake Ration Card as sooner or later you will be caught for sure and legal action will be taken against you. So please stay away from any such sort of activity and help our Nation become an ideal one when it comes to corruption. We have already lost much at this term so please don’t let anyone take advantage of your situation rather directly visit the officials. They will help you for sure.

• You need to have a valid address proof. In case you don’t have one then you can submit an affidavit that states your address. In this case, officials will enquire your details after you submit the Ration Card Form.

• All the persons whose name you want to get entered in your future Ration Card must not be registered with any other rashan card in the country.
