Hyderabad:The Telangana Civil Supplies Department will implement ‘Ration from Anywhere’ (Portability) from tomorrow to benefit 2.75 crore beneficiaries in the state, a senior official said Saturday.
“From tomorrow onwards card holders can avail essential commodities at any ration shop across the state under the portability scheme,” Commissioner for Civil Supplies C V Anand said.
The scheme, which has already been implemented district wise and yielded good response, will now be put in place state-wide, where beneficiaries can avail ration from anywhere in the state, he said in a press release.
Anand said the portability scheme has created competition between ration dealers and beneficiaries are getting good services.
Cardholders need not go particularly to his/her allotted ration shop but can get ration from anywhere in the state, Anand said.
Families migrating or shifting from one place to another were unable to get ration from the nearest ration shop,but had to get rations from the allotted shop even if it was far away.
The beneficiaries had to wait for the ration shops to open and for the stock availability, he said.
