Gujarat Government to provide free ration to 60 lakh APL families
Gujarat government on Wednesday said that during the ongoing lockdown it will provide free ration to around 60 lakh Above Poverty Line (APL) families in the state that are not covered under the National Food Security Act.

Each APL-1 cardholder family will be eligible to get 10 kg wheat, three kg rice, one kg pulses and one kg sugar free of cost.

Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has decided to free the distribution of food grains for the month of April to the families of APL-1 cardholders in the state.

As a result of this decision of the state government, more than 300 million middle class people of large number of APL ration card holders in rural and inland areas will now benefit from the corona epidemic. The decision was taken at a video conferencing cabinet meeting of the state cabinet chaired by CM Rupani and Deputy CM Nitin Patel.

In the case of lockdown of the current Coronavirus Covid-19, Gujarat has made several decisions by taking initiatives in the states across the country with the exorbitant prices that are getting enough grain in the state.

All 5 lakh APL-1 cardholders of middle class households of APL-1 who did not get food grains under NFSA under the National Food Security Act are allowed in middle class to give families 5 kg wheat, 2 kg rice, 2 kg pulses and 5 kg sugar to the government.

Cheap cereals will be provided free of charge from shops. This will result in great relief to the middle class families as a result of this decision and will easily get grain in the current lockdown situation.

The Chief Minister added that the distribution of food grains has been done free of cost to the 4 lakh families of Antyodaya and PHHs in the state in April, followed by more than 1.5 lakh cardholders who received only sugar and salt under NFSA without giving wheat, rice and pulses free of cost. Have made the decision.

Not only that, the poorest in the state, the poor, the laborers and the workers of other province-states who do not have ration cards are also being distributed free of cost under the Annabhram scheme. The state cabinet has decided to provide such grains to the middle class APL-1 card holders in the current situation free of cost. Delivery dates will now be announced
