Aadhar mandatory for availing ration subsidy

New Delhi: The union government made Aadhaar mandatory for availing subsidised foodgrains from the ration shops with a view to better target ₹1.4 lakh crore subsidy under the food security law. The government has given time to those not having the bio-metric-based unique identification number to apply for Aadhaar by June 30. The government issued a notification to this effect, but did stop short of saying that subsidised food grains will not be sold to anyone not having Aadhaar after June 30. Under the National Food Security Law (NFSA), which has been completely rolled out across the country in November last year, the government provides 5 kg of foodgrains per person every month at ₹1-3/kg to over 80 crore people.
