SC to Centre: consider adopting 'one nation, one ration card' scheme

Apr 28, 2020 15:11 IST

The Supreme Court has asked the Centre to consider the feasibility of 'temporarily' adopting the 'one nation, one ration card' scheme during the ongoing coronavirus lockdown period to enable the migrant workers and economically weaker sections get subsidised foodgrain. The central government scheme is scheduled to be launched in June this year. The top court disposed of a plea filed by advocate Reepak Kansal, who sought the launching of the scheme, for the benefit of migrant workers, beneficiaries and citizens of other states stranded in different places due to the nationwide lockdown.
