Ration card corrections within a week: Uppal

Special Correspondent

People should contact eSeva centres for filling and submitting applications, says Joint Collector


Applications can also be given for duplicate cards if the existing ones are lost, says official

The number of cards in the district after cancellation is down to 9,94,393, he says


VIJAYAWADA: The facility for ration cardholders to apply for a change of address and make corrections to their name and age will be available in a week, Joint Collector Gaurav Uppal said on Wednesday.

He said at a press conference that the people interested in changing address or making corrections could contact the eSeva centres for filling and submitting an application. But the required software would not be ready for another week.

“They are saying that it will be ready by Monday, but I have given them one week time,” he said. New cards would be issued after these were endorsed by the digital signature of the joint collector.

Dr. Uppal said that there was no provision for address change or migration till recently, but now the procedure for changing the address and making corrections has been worked out and the facility was now being made available to the people.

Applications could also be given for duplicate cards, if the existing cards were lost.

The facility was already available for ration cardholders of rural areas, he said. The application could be submitted at the Rural Services Delivery Points (RSDPs). In mandals where there were no RSDPs, the applications should be submitted to the tahasildhar's office.

Nominal Fee

A nominal fee of Rs. 50 for new white cards and Rs. 75 for new pink cards would be charged at the time of receiving the applications. Dr. Uppal said there was no need for the cardholders to rush because this was a continuous process.

The dynamic e-register, into which all the details would go, would be revised on the 20th of every month.

Dr. Uppal said that before the survey there were 10,85,292 cards in Krishna district.

On completion of the survey, 90,899 cards (8.4 per cent) were cancelled. The number of cards in the district after the cancellation came down to 9,94,393.

Along with the 27,277 cards that were ready for distribution but kept pending because of the issuing of election notification, the number of cards in the district would reach 10,21,670.

Application have been received for 1,11,616 new cards. Three-fourths of the applications for new cards have been verified.

The verification has slowed down a little because many of the revenue personnel were being used for sanitation work in the wake of seasonal fevers.

DPL centres would, however, be established in November-December for issuing these cards, Dr. Uppal said.
