Good quality ration to reach Punjab homes at doorsteps from now on

In another significant decision, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Monday announced a novel scheme to deliver ration at the doorsteps of the people across the state in a seamless manner. While making an announcement to this effect in a video message, Bhagwant Mann said that the scheme is aimed at providing good quality ration wheat or atta and daal to the people packed in clean gunny bags. He said, “You need not to stand in long queues or miss your daily-wage anymore for getting ration and now our officials would check your availability before delivering the ration at your doorsteps”.

Pointing out further, Mann said that under this scheme an option would also be given to those beneficiaries who want to get ration supply from the nearby depots as per their convenience. He lamented that the people have to still stand in long queues for fetching ration even after 75 years of independence whereas now in a digital era people can get anything delivered online within no time at their place. This people-friendly initiative would ensure the best quality ration at their doorsteps as earlier our mothers had to go even 2 km for getting ration that too of substandard quality not fit for human consumption. He said, “Our government has made an endeavour to provide healthy and hygienic ration at your doorsteps.” He said the modalities for the implementation of this scheme would be rolled out shortly.

Mann further said that this scheme was earlier introduced in Delhi by the Kejriwal government but somehow was stalled by the Centre as it intended to make people stand in long queues for ration.
