Ration Card Status

A Ration Card is a government-issued document that entitles households to purchase subsidized food grains and essential commodities from the Public Distribution System (PDS). Ration Cards are sorted by family income levels—Below Poverty Line (BPL), Above Poverty Line (APL), and Antyodaya—to give benefits properly.
