Cancel all illegal ration cards in Karnataka: CM Yediyurappa


Bengaluru, Jun 5 (IANS): Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa has ordered the Food and Civil Supplies Department to cancel all illegal ration cards.

"Government employees and owners of tractors and other vehicles must return the Below Poverty Line (BPL) ration cards immediately, failing which stringent legal action would be initiated," Yediyurappa instructed the officials on Thursday.

Speaking at a review meeting of the Food and Civil Supplies department, he said proper supply of ration must be ensured to eligible beneficiaries and action should be taken to prevent the misuse.

He instructed the officials to initiate a campaign to root out all illegal ration cards.

"This campaign would help in curtailing the financial burden of the state's reserves," he said.

Before Covid-19 struck, as many as 63,000 ration cards were cancelled.

Meanwhile, Yediyurappa has said that Rs 240 crore has been released under the support price scheme as a recurring deposit to clear the pending payments to farmers.

Likewise, under chief minister's Anila Bhagya scheme, 98,079 beneficiaries have been given three gas cylinders free of cost.

As 53 godowns of the department are in a dilapidated condition, construction of 95 modern godowns with a capacity of 1,000 metric tonnes has been taken up under the public private partnership model.

The Chief Minister has directed the officials to speed up the construction.

    In Bangalore building owner rented the residential houses and getting @rs35000 per month rent have BPL cards. Some people made bpl cards by paying rs3000 at the time of card making. I heard one case a businessman having turn over 1cror / month having bpl card and got ration during this pandemic. What about situation. Nobody cancelling the cards. It's the announcement only.
    Those who have enough food during this pandemic collected the ration from wherever it available and stored.
    Some poor not got a single grain.

    Some people have learnt many innovative ideas to get BPL benefits. I know two families in Bangalore, how they are living on BPL benefits.

    Case one: The family is very rich having many shops given on rent getting more than lakhs per month in rent. Recently, they purchased an apartment, price of which is in crores. They have APL card. Their son though looks after the affairs, nothing is in his name and he is not employed. He purchased a small house in a shanty and given on rent, but he has given that address for obtaining BPL card. This family gets BPL benefits and the son and his family lives comfortably with the main family.

    Case two: The family is poor, and has BPL card. Their son is very rich and has posh car, but since he has another house, he has APL card. He lives with parents and they are not living like poor people. Son even takes his father by his car to get BPL rice and other things.

    Adhaar, PAN are all linked. Any transaction above certain amount requires PAN. Why is it difficult to track if a PAN card holder is also holding a BPL card ? Simple - put a search for the type of his ration card, you will immediately come to know. Block it on the spot - explanation can be given if sought.

    Please don't waste rice @ Re 1/- per Kg and other food products to undeserving people. That's not all - they are given medical aid, education and other perks too. It all comes from the taxes collected from people. The government is under loss, the money must be accumulated, not thrown away to undeserving lazy people who fake to be poor.

    Yes...valid comments from Sri anna and Eshwar sir. To give one small example... some of the people who are under BPL cards are investing in big companies to the tune of 20/22 thousand per month...They are the ones who got so many kits from Government/association/schools/ration free etc....Extra rice they are selling....This fact came to know when there were no passengers during the month of April....some have applied for 5,000/ rupees under auto and taxi too. They have badges but not taxis.....catch the culprits who gave them badges without the vehicle....Who is poor?? Government can save lot of funds being looted by this BPL card holders...Issue the cards who is really in need..who are sick, who cant work and aged ones... Double their benefits...Please never loot the government...
