Amritsar, June 8

Mayor Karamjit Singh Rintu distributed smart ration cards to beneficiaries here on Tuesday. Around 200 beneficiaries from ward number 12 and 13 got smart cards from councillor Priyanka Sharma.

Mayor Karamjit Singh Rintu said during the tenure of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, basic amenities have been provided to every section of the society.

He said free ration was being provided to families under the Smart Ration Card Scheme. He said the state government had enrolled every eligible beneficiary under the scheme so that he or she could get the wheat and concessional rate.

The Mayor said every card holder would get an insurance cover up to Rs 5 lakh per annum. He said with this smart card the beneficiaries would be able to get food grains from any ration depot. This will also bring transparency in ration distribution scheme and save time. Councillor Priyanka Sharma, Riteish Sharma, Bhupinder, Sunny Kumar, Amit, Gurpreet Singh and Manpreet Singh Jassi were present on the occasion.
