Kodagu: 'Provide bio-metric details for ration cards'

Additional Deputy Commissioner Dr N Shivashankar has said that all those who have applied for ration cards should get their photographs clicked and submit bio-metric details, to the nearest gram panchayats, to get ration cards by January 25.

He said that 2,577 applications have been received seeking ration cards.

He was speaking at a meeting held to discuss on the loopholes in the ration cards here on Tuesday.

“As many as 1,000 families possess temporary ration cards in the district. Such families can get their ration cards by submitting bio-metric details and photographs of the family members,” he said.

He said 8,464 ration cards have been suspended temporarily as the family failed to submit details on house number and RR number to the authorities concerned. All those who have failed in submitting RR number, should submit the details to the taluk food and civil supplies office by January 25.

Assistant Commissioner G Prabhu, Food and Civil Supplies Assistant Director Naveed Ahammed and others were present.
