Jamshedpur, Oct. 17: A district level meeting of the ration and supplies department was held on Monday at the office of the Deputy Commissioner of East Singhbhum.

The DC, Amit Kumar, presiding over the meeting, directed the district ration and supply officials to distribute as many as 15,000 ration cards that have not been given to the beneficiaries so far. He said the distribution of ration cards should be ensured within a week. The ration cards of ineligible persons should be returned and deposited with the department, he said.

The DC said that 5000 application forms had been made available to each block in the district for white ration cards while 25,000 application forms had been supplied in the ration areas.

The officials have been directed to ensure that no eligible person is deprived of the white ration cards and that no undeserving candidate is able to get the same.

Kumar asked the officials to carry out wide publicity of the availability of white forms at panchayat level. The block supply officers and block marketing officers have been asked to take care of the publicity work. Forms have been provided to all circle offices for this purpose.

All regional officials have been asked to inform farmers about the white ration card and the availability of ration.
During the review, the DC was told that the ration for September month had not been distributed as yet. The DC said that ration should be distributed within two days.

The DC was also informed that foodgrain supply work had started in the district with the help of ePOS machines from 16th October onwards. He asked the officials to ensure smooth distribution of ration through ePOS without any discrepancy. If any dealer is facing technical difficulty, he should contact the technical officials concerned available in the district control room, the DC said.

In connection with kerosene distribution, it was reported to the DC that the bank accounts of 48.7 per cent beneficiaries had been collected so far.

Expressing dissatisfaction over it, the DC said the district supply officer, district ration officer and block level supply officials should complete 90 per cent of the work by October end.

The meeting was attended by the sub divisional officer Suraj Kumar, district supply officer Dilip Tiwary, ration officer Bindeshwari Tatma, block supply officers and marketing officers.
