The lockdown was implemented in the wake of Corona’s second wave in the state, during which ration cards were distributed by the central and state government to rationers.
The distribution of rations is exempt from typing. Biometric exemption, rationers may receive a May ration without biometric payment.
When ration card holders go to the bar to get rations, the ration will be distributed based on the mobile OTP. The rations will also be delivered through Manuel. The Food Department has issued a circular stating that typing is not mandatory for rationing.
