The government of Kashmir has begun scrutinizing the ration card holders under the Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY) and Priority Householder (PHH) categories. The Director of Food Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs (FCS&CA), Abdul Salam Mir, stated that officers have been directed to complete the verification process of over 7.5 lakh ration cards within a month.
Out of the total, 1.5 lakh families fall under the AAY category, while almost 5 lakh families come under the PHH category. The process aims to identify undeserving families who have been categorized in AAY and PHH in Kashmir. Those families that don’t deserve to be in AAY and PHH categories will be added to the APL category.
Director FCS&CA also warned of consequences for any employees found to be involved in providing AAY and PHH ration cards to undeserving families. He urged families that do not qualify for the AAY and PHH category to voluntarily surrender their ration cards. This move will save time and ensure that the benefits reach the intended poor and downtrodden families within society.
The government has taken this step to ensure that the right people receive the benefits of the ration card scheme. The AAY and PHH categories offer subsidized food grains to families living below the poverty line. However, some families who do not qualify for these categories may have received these benefits due to administrative errors or corruption.
The scrutiny process will help identify such cases and ensure that the benefits of the scheme reach those who truly need them. This move is part of the government’s efforts to improve the delivery of public services and ensure transparency and accountability.
Director FCS&CA has also urged citizens to cooperate with the verification process and provide accurate information. The success of the process will depend on the support of all stakeholders. The government hopes that this move will help improve the lives of the poor and downtrodden in Kashmir and ensure that they receive their rightful share of benefits.Facebook or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
