Like Last Year, Union Govt to Provide Free Ration to Poor

The Union government Friday announced it would be providing free ration to poor families for two months, May and June. About 80 crore beneficiaries will be getting free ration. Each poor family will get an additional 5 kg ration per person per month for free. It will be over and above the wheat, rice and grain which they’re entitled to get at rupees 3, 2 and 1 per kg respectively. It will cost the government about INR 26000 crores.

The scheme covered the period from April-November last year.
