What is an e-Ration Card?

An e-Ration Card is a digital version of the traditional ration card, accessible online. It serves the same purpose as a physical ration card, allowing holders to purchase subsidized food grains and essential commodities from the Public Distribution System (PDS).

The e-Ration Card is digital, making it easy to get, update, and use for different things without needing a paper card.

Linking Aadhaar to ration cards is mandatory, and everyone should ensure they complete this process before the last date, which is September 30, 2024. Failing to link these documents may result in losing access to subsidized food grains and other benefits provided through the Public Distribution System (PDS).
