SILCHAR: Ceremonial distribution programme of "Anna Mahotsav" under Pradhan Mantri Gramin Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY) was held at Gandhi Bhaban on Friday in Silchar. The programme was organised by Food & Civil Supply & Consumer Affairs Department under the aegis of Cachar district administration. At the outset all the dignitaries were felicitated with a traditional gamocha.
Speaking on the occasion, Additional Deputy Commissioner, Food and Civil Supply & Consumer Affairs, Kamal Baruah said that this "Anna Mahotsav" will be a great help for the poor people at this critical time of pandemic. He further stressed that a special drive will be taken shortly to inspect the fair price shops whether they have displayed the list of beneficiaries of National Food Security Act card holders or not and requested all concerned for surrendering the ration cards who are not eligible as per government norms.
In the program organized on this occasion, every speaker praised the programme. However, they requested the administration to identify the fake ration card holders and arrange surprise visits to the fair price shops. They said that strict action should be taken against the fake card holders by identifying them. Besides, it is necessary to ensure that the real beneficiaries are not deprived.
3,23000 beneficiaries will be benefited under this scheme. This scheme started from the month of May and will be continued upto Diwali. On this occasion the non woven carry bags with 10 kg rice were handed over to 20 beneficiaries.
