A ration card is an official document issued by the state government to households eligible for subsidised food grain from the Public Distribution System (PDS) under the National Food Security Act. It can also be used as ID proof for making a Domicile certificate, Birth certificate, and Voter ID card, among other things. The ration card form can now be procured online. Additionally, individuals can also check ration card status, add names, download e-ration card, and link ration card with Aadhaar card via the respective state government’s websites. If you’re wondering how? Fret not, we’ve got you covered. Here is how to apply for a ration card online, check its status, and more.

Who is eligible for ration card in India?

The non-BPL ration cards are white in colour and issued to people above the poverty line.
