UP Ration Card 2018 | How To Apply, Update & Check List | fcs.up.nic.in

In day to day life, a common man is completely dependent upon several essential commodities such as rice, pulses, wheat, sugar, kerosene oil, LPG, Fertilizers etc. The hikes in the prices of these commodities somehow affect the weaker economic sections of the society. Thus, to prevent from such circumstances the Government of India came up with an idea to introduce Ration Card which came to their rescue as an Official legal document.

The Ration Card is a document that is issued under an Authority to provide the food grains and other commodities at subsidized rates. Not only this, the Ration card also serves as an Identity Proof while applying for other documents such as Passport, Voter ID etc. It also serves as the Proof of identity for the entire family.

Uttar Pradesh (UP) Ration Card at fcs.up.nic.in

Uttar Pradesh is known as one of the most populous states in India (approx. 200 million). The state has an approx. of 60 million of the inhabitants who are living below the poverty line. The Human Development Index Value in Uttar Pradesh is about 0.380 against 0.467 which is the National Average.

So from the above statistics, it has been clear that the Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) is crucial to ensure the Food Security in the state. Therefore, the implementation of the Ration Card came into action due to which the citizens can obtain the food grains and other commodities at subsidized rates.

In this article, we will be providing you the complete details regarding the Ration Card Application in Uttar Pradesh.

Benefits and Advantages of having UP Ration Card

As told earlier, the Government is committed to certain duties and responsibilities for the benefits of the citizens. It ensures that there should be a complete social security and food security of its citizens. Therefore, the Ration Card came into rescue. It will help in executing the TPDS, thereby allowing the citizens to survive from frequent hikes in the commodity prices.

We all are aware of the fluctuations in the prices of the commodities in both National and International Markets as well as in the Political Factors. In such conditions, the Government ensures that the economically weak sections of the society must have a continued access to the commodities at affordable price rates. Therefore, the Government introduced the Fair Price Shops where the people can get the day to day life commodities at low price rates. This section of the society can sustain themselves with the help of the Ration Cards.

The Second thing is the Proof of identification. Since, the Ration Card is an Official document, therefore, this card serves as the Proof of identity for the cardholder and is acceptable at many places and offices where an ID proof is asked.

The Ration Card also serves as a Residential Proof. It can be used in many cases such as: during the selling or purchasing of the property, buying a loan etc. Recently, the Government has made it mandatory to link Aadhaar with the Ration Card which makes the Ration Card function as a multi-purpose document since; the Aadhaar is linked to the cardholder’s bank account.

It should also be noted that the Ration Card also serves as an Identity Proof for the complete family. It consists of the complete details of each and every family member- their names, age, gender, photographs, and relation with the head of the family. This is one of the unique characteristics of the Ration Card.
