Sir, What is the benefit to middle class people from applying to Ration Card, when PDS is ment only for APL & BPL families, then why should we apply for Ration Card. Also now Aadhar Card can be used for all types of Proof.

G.Jayakumar said...

The initiative of Hon’ble Minister in curbing Bogus card is welcome initiative, but the process of applying online by a group of persons is seems to be difficult, for example, the Govt. of KARNATAKA, during the period of EX CM’s have approved to issue BPL cards to such of those ex employees families in Bharath gold Mines Limited in Kolar Gold Fields Assembly constituency, an request is under process of requesting the hon’ble Minister to grant BPL cards to 3500 BGML Mining families, who were placed jobless after the closure of the company by the Union Govt. What could be the process in case of special cases?.

ss.serrnivas said...

I had applied for card on 11/11/11 and received a SMS on 14/05/12 stating some security code and it’s also states income certificate to be carried to the seeva kendra. Where do i get the income certificate and what is the income to be mentioned in income certificate. Please suggest

M.G.Rajagopal said...

This online registration and issue of ration cards is an excellent idea and pro people. More publicity should be given to this, so that more and more people will utilize the programme to get ration card.

veerabhadra katakol said...

Many powerful people in remote villages still have multiple RCs with very little alterations in name & surname, how can you restrict these people? At the same time, there are so many uneducated labour who are not able to visit bio metric places for registration.

I had a bitter experience while renewing the PDS ration card today at the food and civil supplies department. The computer operator at the window has no knowledge of printing. the documents got printed with cross alignment when I asked for the correction I was charged Rs.20 more and again it was the same result when I insisted upon I was answered it was a software problem. I don't know how software can alter the alignment only for me while remaining few had no problem. I had similar experience while getting my voters id also. When will these people learn something so that we can save our face in front of the international community. How can I submit these types of documents to any of my further documentation. Can anyone correct this? This was done to me a graduate in computer application.

Common man said...

I applied for RC on 29-02-2012 online. Photo session and bio-metric session was over. I check the website every week. I have yet to get my RC. Moreover, why the Government insists upon RC for identification purpose when you are not eligible for food items by ration?

Mahesh said...

Hi, I had applied for RC almost 2 years back with surrender certificate (original) after which the issuing of new RC was stopped abruptly almost for a year to curb fraud and irregularities, after which it went online. After that I was unable to apply again online as whenever I visited the website it showed that the service is temporarily withdrawn, now how should I apply again and what about the original surrender certificate which I have already submitted? Please let me know how I should go about it now. Thanks, Mahesh.

Pradeep said...

Hello, Am Pradeep here. I applied ration card one year back, and awaited till call for photo capture, however I came to know that my electric meter is not validate, when I check with particular area inspector, they informed me that, need to apply once again then they will validate it. From last 6 months am checking in online site, till now the site is showing “software is temporarily down". Kindly let me know shall I wait for re-apply or I can question back them with earlier applied form.

Anonymous said...

On enquiry I was told that online application will be received from last Thursday. But when I tried to apply it is found that the software is temporarily withdrawn. Do I expect, the concerned will publish, from which date the application will be received for new ration card.

Day Time Diary said...

Hi Sir, I am in need of bio metric information of my family members which we had given while applying for ration card in 2012. Kindly let me know from where I can get the biometric information (finger print)? What is the procedure to be followed for the same? Thanks in advance.

Sir, I stay in Govt. department house, were we wont get electric bill, as private house, if we go to bio photo center, what should be carried, any alternative option is available. Since 6 months ago I have applied online for ration card, and after few days I received a SMS that, the application is rejected due to invalid RR number, means that, the consult persons sitting there and deciding what is valid and not valid, with out approaching the applicant to visit RC centers, with required documents, any one can explain me.

The food officers ill-treat the people who go for BPL card application or making any changes. The officers should be first trained how to behave and behave like educated. They should also know they are public servants and they are appointed for public. It’s a shame to such officers.

Anonymous said...

Sir, I have an old RC but its validity has not renewed as I do not get any food items with this RC. Now I am staying Hoodi since 4 years and RC is a must for address proof and similar other purposes. I was told that I should accompany a valid RC Holder and go to the biometric center for introduction. It is very difficult to identify a person as of them are busy with their own daily work. Is it possible to show old RC for verification? Govt. should simplify the rules so that citizens will not suffer.

Jayadev RajaRao said...

I have sent message containing RCNEW my name to given phone number and I had received security code message and I am asked to go to Photo Bio Centre. When I approached photo bio centre they said that they will resume the work only after the election. Now since election is over and they said that Govt. will publish date of commencement of work in news paper and I asked to come back after the announcement. Can anyone help the exact date of commencement of work at Photo bio centre?

Gurudev said...

Gurudev, what is the different between APL and BPL? In Mangalore I found in the ration shop, people those are caring 30 kg rice in their own car. How would they get BPL? Are those people were BPL (Below Poverty Line)? Then what we did to the Govt.? Why we don’t get ration? Aren’t we (APL) citizen of India?

I am presently staying away from Bangalore for official purpose and will be coming to Bangalore only in December. I just heard from parents if I am not present during the photo taking in photo bio centre... My name will be deleted..... What is the process to include my name?

I came across an incident where one of my colleague who is an IT payee has been issued a BPL Ration card in the name of his wife. Also as per RTI act he got his child placed in a reputed school in Mysore. Who is the authority for checking this discrepancy?

manu said...

Hello, I have an old APL Paditara Chiti which was issued to me before 2009. I have sent the message to the given number in the Bio Center along with my RCREN paditara chiti number, but to my surprise another message arrived saying the password has been sent already for the paditara chiti number to another mobile number. This was a shocking incident and I am still in a confused state. Because that mobile number is not picked up and no proper response.

Ganesh said...

I Checked in our allotted Fair price shop located in Kuvempunagar Mysore, I was told nothing will issued to my APL Paditara Chiti. When I asked them what is the use of getting Paditara Chiti, He said smiling sarcastically only for Address Proof. I was amused because that they (Govt) had used our Adhar & Voters ID details during registration for same address proof & Just provided this APL Paditara Chiti for the same address proof purpose. I think by this what our Govt planning commission is doing. If Govt intends not to provide any thing for APL Paditara Chiti holders, Why they should allot APL Paditara Chiti simply to waste time & money of Citizens/Government. Regards Common Man
