Chief Miniser B.S.Yediyurappa
BENGALURU: Chief Miniser B.S.Yediyurappa on Thursday said that government employees and owners of tractors and other vehicles must return the BPL ration cards immediately failing which stringent legal action would be initiated.

He issued the warning while reviewing the performance of the food and civil supplies and consumer affairs department in Bengaluru.

Proper supply of PDS grains must be ensured to eligible beneficiaries and action has to be taken to prevent misuse of the benefits by ineligible persons, he said.

About 63,000 ration cards were cancelled before the Covid 19 outbreak . He directed officials to initiate a campaign to cancel all illegal ration cards. The campaign, he said, would help in curtailing the financial burden on the State’s reserves.

In the backdrop of covid 19 pandemic, both the Central and State Governments have distributed sufficient quantity of ration. About 95 % ration card holders have availed the benefit.
