Dough, rice and sugar will soon be delivered at home to ration card holders in Delhi. This benefit will be provided to the card holders under the ‘Mukhyamantri Ghar-Ghar Ration Scheme’. The Delhi government is continuously working on this and now in this episode, the Kejriwal government has formed a committee.
This committee has been formed to give licenses to distribution agencies under the ‘Chief Minister House to House Ration Scheme’. There are a total of 6 members in this committee and it will focus on license work and submit its report within a week. Additional commissioner (food and supplies) Anand Kumar Tiwari, assistant commissioner (policy) Rajesh Ahuja and assistant commissioner (distribution) Desh Raj Singh are among the committee members.
According to an order issued by the Office of Food Supply and Consumer Affairs, the committee has also been asked to suggest to the committee on the necessary amendments to the Delhi Specified Article (Regulation of Distribution) Order, 1981. Which distribution agencies have to license and Special attention is being given to how agencies will deliver ration to the people.
These distribution agencies, which are licensed under the scheme, will have to supply ration materials to the people at their homes. In July this year, the Delhi cabinet approved doorstep delivery of rations and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal termed it a ‘revolutionary’ step. Kejriwal had said that the scheme is expected to be rolled out in the next six to seven months after completing the tendering process and other requirements.
