Shri V P Singh Badnore, Governor of Punjab and Administrator Chandigarh UT launching "One Nation One Ration Card Scheme"

Shri. V P Singh Badnore, Hon’ble Governor of  Punjab and Administrator Chandigarh UT launched “One Nation One Ration Card (ONORC) Scheme” on 31st October 2020. The ONORC software has been developed by NIC.  Chandigarh UT is the first State/UT to implement ONORC with integration of DBT. Also present on the occasion were  Sh. Manoj Parida, IAS  Adviser to the Administrator, Sh. Vinod P. Kavle, IAS Secretary, Food & Supplies and Consumer Affairs & Legal Metrology, Chandigarh UT and other senior  officers of Chandigarh Administration. 

This ONORC  enables the migrant  beneficiaries to get ration, even when he moves out to other states or UTs.  This is particularly helpful for the migrant labour who stays a few months at one place and thereafter goes to other State for work.  Without portability of the ration card, these migrant people were deprived of their entitlement of ration under the National Food Security Act, 2013.

For this purpose, the department has setup helpline no. “14445” and a dedicated service window in the office.  The migrant person has to either call on “14445” or visit the service window in the department to register under the ONORC Scheme. The migrant persons have to bring their Aadhar Card, Ration Card, Provide Bank Details and Address in Chandigarh. They have to visit the office for biometric authentication. After successful registration, the food subsidy amount in lieu of food grains will be transferred into  the Migrant's bank account as per the entitlement under NFSA.
