Patna: ‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ will be put into action by June 1 across the country, said Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Monday.
“We will implement the ‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ scheme by June 1 across the country. Under this scheme a beneficiary will be able to avail benefits anywhere in the country using the same ration card,” said the Minister.
