Online ration card mutation services launched

Special Correspondent

Services will be offered from centres hosting AP Online, eSeva centres


Facility can be used for change of address and fair price shops, issue of duplicate ration cards

It will, however, not apply to addition of new names in the cards


HYDERABAD: The State government on Monday launched ration card mutation services online through the network of 1,900 citizen service centres across the State.

Civil Supplies Minister J. Krishna Rao accepted the first request for a service from a card holder who shifted his residence from Hyderabad to Ranga Reddy.

The services will be offered in three or four days from the 1,600 centres hosting the official government portal AP Online and 300 eSeva centres.

Mr. Rao told mediapersons that the facility could be used for change of address and fair price shops, issue of duplicate ration cards, rectification of dates of birth and alteration in the names of dependents.

Identification

It will, however, not apply to addition of new names in the cards, in which case the holders need to go through a fresh process involving biometric identification of all the family members.

The rule is relaxed in the case of new borns whose names could be added as part of mutation services.

The Minister said the government will dispose of seven lakh applications for new white cards through biometric system simultaneously with the launch of unique identification (UID) project this month.

Under this service, the applications will be cleared in a maximum of thirty days after authorities verify proof submitted along with them.

The Joint Collectors have been designated as issuing authorities.

Automatic platform

The process will be a completely automatic platform with digital signatures of applicants, Joint Collectors and the Commissioner.

Nominal fee

The details will be immediately transferred on the registers of fair price shops and the applicants can draw their ration in the following month.

The citizen service centres which receive the applications will deliver the cards as well for a nominal fee.

The Minister said that the services were useful to migrant labourers and other low income groups who had to pay several visits to Mandal Revenue Offices.

Civil Supplies Commissioner Sanjay Jaju, Managing Director of Civil Supplies Corporation B. Udaya Lakshmi and other officials were present.
