Central Government Scheme


Grocery and food items are the priority need of the people. People are rushing to have enough stock of food available at home for the period of lockdown. Taking all these things into consideration the government has decided to launch PM Ration Subsidy Scheme which is the world’s largest food security scheme on 25th March 2020. The government also said they will provide people with sufficient grocery there will be no shortage of food products and essential goods during the lockdown. Cabinet Minister Prakash Javadekar said in a press conference that the government will provide wheat at a cost of Rs 2 per kg, instead of Rs 27 per kg; and rice at a cost of Rs 3 per kg, instead of Rs 37 per kg. Under this scheme, beneficiaries will also get a 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 much 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.
