Garib kalyan yojana: Now till March 2022 these people will get wheat and rice for free

PM Garib Kalyan Ann Yojana: PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana has been extended till March 2022. Approval has been given to increase it from the Union Cabinet. That is, now under this scheme, the beneficiaries will continue to get free ration till March 2022. Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana was announced in March 2020. The purpose of this scheme is to reduce the stress caused by the corona epidemic. Initially, the scheme was launched for the period April-June 2020. But later it was extended till 30 November.

Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY), the government provides free ration to 80 crore ration cardholders identified under the National Food Security Act (NFSA). The free ration card holders are over and above the subsidized food grains received through the ration shops.

Under this scheme of the central government, about 80 crore ration card holders of India are given 5 kg more food grains (wheat-rice) per month. Citizen of the country who has ration card available, he is getting 5 kg additional ration every month under this scheme along with the ration of his quota. Under this scheme, free food grains will be available at the same ration shop from where it is available on the ration card.

The benefit of free food grains under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana is not for those who do not have a ration card. This scheme is limited to ration card holders, whose number is more than 80 crores in the country.

Toll free numbers for each state are available on the National Food Security Portal (NFSA). You can register your complaint by calling on this.
