What is One Nation One Ration Card Scheme

Under the One Nation, One Ration Card scheme, eligible beneficiaries of the National Food Security Act (NFSA) will be able to pick up food grains using their ration cards from a fair price shop anywhere in the country. Even if their ration card is made in any state or district.

The target of the Food Ministry was to implement this scheme across the country by March 2021, but so far this target has not been fulfilled, for which the Supreme Court has now fixed the deadline.

At present, this scheme is implemented in about 20 states and union territories. One nation, one ration card does not require a new card.

Under this scheme, ration shops are being equipped with finger print identification machines for biometric identification of the beneficiary.
