The Delhi Government is most likely to launch its ambitious doorstep delivery ration scheme on March 25 by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Civil Supplies Minister Imran Hussain said the service will be implemented in 100 households initially in Seemapuri before expanding it to all the other parts of the city from April 1.
CM Kejriwal announced on January 25 that the scheme will be launched by March. However, few administrative hurdles delayed the roll-out. In fact, this has also led to some frictional incidents between AAP and officials of the department.
However, the issues are addressed to finally implement the scheme soon by drafting the modalities of the door delivery ration scheme. Hence, the ration will be supplied to 1.75 households in the capital by including the new areas on weekly basis starting from April 1 after distributing initially for 100 households in Seemapuri.
As a part of it, all those availing ration through TPDS( Targeted Public Distribution System) can enrol to avail of the scheme and the others who won’t opt for the option can continue availing the ration at the Fair Price Shops as usual.
