Panaji: Civil supplies dept to cancel faulty ration cards

Daijiworld Media Network - Panaji

Panaji, Oct 29: The civil supplies department in the state is looking into the issue of faulty ration cards. Govind Gaude, minister of civil supplies and consumers affairs said that the department will check the genuineness of the cards issued and officers found guilty will be suspended.

"Every ration card has been linked with the holder's Aadhar card, so the question of fake ration cards doesn't arise. All the ration cards we generate now are computerized. However, there are old ration cards that are handwritten and no longer in service," he said.

He further said that Goa is the only state with 98 percent authentic Aadhar data entry done. "This data entry is done manually, so there is maybe possibility of the person making a mistake in entering the details. We will take action against the person after we find out," Gaude said. He added that the director of civil supplies has asked to conduct an enquiry in the matter.
