Fulfilling the promise to deliver ration to families registered under National Food Security Act (NFSA) effectively and with full transparency, Food, Civil Supply and Consumer affair Minister Punjab Bharat Bhushan Ashu on Saturday launched the Smart Ration Card scheme, which will allow beneficiaries to withdraw ration from their choice of Depots or Fair Price Shops (FPS).The minister distributed 10 smart ration cards to the district beneficiaries simultaneously via video conference with the Chief Minister Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh, who launched the scheme from Chandigarh. Political Secretary to Chief Minister Captain Sandeep Singh Sandhu, Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu and Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma were also present during the launching.While launching the event from Chandigarh, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said that this is all due to the efforts of Bharat Bhushan Ashu that the scheme was successfully launched as he had worked very hard to digitise the whole process of the ration distribution system, which will not only facilitate the beneficiaries but also help to eliminate the corruption.Apart from present 1.41 crores beneficiaries, the Chief Minister announced to include additional nine lakh beneficiaries, who are eligible but not covered under the NFSA so that every entitled person will be benefitted from this scheme and the state government will bear the expenditure.

The Smart Ration Card will be swiped on the e-PoS machine to fetch the details of the family, after which the bio-metrics authentication of the family member will be done to withdraw the food grains, he said adding that the cards can also be used for intra-state portability.Explaining about the security features of Smart Ration Card he said that the details of the beneficiaries integrated into the chip will be locked which will be read from authenticated devices only.
