Assam has become the 36th State to implement One Nation One Ration Card scheme on 22nd June. With this, One Nation One Ration Card scheme is successfully implemented in all the 36 states and Union Territories making food security portable throughout the country.

This scheme is aimed at enabling migrant workers and their family members to seamlessly lift their entitled subsidized food grains from any Fair Price Shop of their choice anywhere in the country.

One Nation One Ration Card scheme has significantly contributed in ensuring subsidized food grains to beneficiaries especially migrant beneficiaries during the Covid pandemic. Within a short-span of time, it covered 80 crore beneficiaries. Since its inception in August 2019, about 71 crore portable transactions have taken place under this scheme, delivering food grains equivalent to 40 thousand crore rupees as a food subsidy.
