Mera ration app is an app designed for migrant labourers. When the global pandemic started in 2020, many workers decided to move back to the villages to survive. Now that they have started migrating back, the Mera ration mobile app is a part of the government’s One Nation One Ration Card (ONORC) system. The app is for migrant labourers who keep moving to different cities for work and require a ration card that works across different states.
Who will benefit from the Mera Ration mobile app?
The Mera ration mobile app, launched by the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, currently covers 32 states and union territories and the government is currently working on adding more states soon. The app is currently available in English and Hindi and will benefit especially those ration card holders who move to new areas to earn their livelihoods.
With the implementation of the One Nation-One Ration Card system, the government intends to provide ration to beneficiaries under the National Food Security Act (NFSA) and other welfare schemes. The app will help ensure ration is given to all covered under the scheme, especially the migrant workers and their families. The ration will be provided via the fair price shop (FPS) across the country.
Food Secretary Sudhanshu Pandey said, “The new mobile app aims to enable the ONORC-related services among beneficiaries of the NFSA, particularly migrant beneficiaries, fair price shop (FPS) or ration shop dealers and other stakeholders.” He further added, “We plan to have this mobile app in 14 languages. These languages are identified based on places where most migrant people move.”
The mobile app is currently available for Android users and will help ration cardholders to identify the nearest fair price shop, and check details of their entitlement.
