PM Ration Subsidy Scheme
Grocery and food items are the priority need for the people. People are rushing to have enough stock of food available at home for the period of lockdown.

Under this scheme, beneficiaries will also get 7kg per person per month ration for the next three months.
Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana Objective
Pradhanmantri Garib Kalyan Yojana was launched by the Prime Minister with the objective of providing daily basic food items to all the poor people living in the country at a subsidized rate so that they can afford happy living in these hard times of corona. Due to the prevailing conditions of lockdown due to coronavirus in the country, people don’t have to implement these days and a major population of India depends on daily wage for their daily bread, so in this condition, they don’t have that many savings that they can afford a monthly or further lockdown. That’s why the government has planned to ration to the poor people at a subsidized rate.
