Application For Ration Card: Kerala

Download Application Forms:-

The Civil Supplies Department of the Kerala Government has launched an online system for submission of application forms for new Ration Cards.

Every economy faces price hikes from time to time due to fluctuations in the international and national markets, changes in fuel prices, and even due to political conditions. In order to secure the reach of the common man, the Government provides subsidies on various goods including even petroleum products and fertilizers for agricultural use so that the common citizen might not face problems in the face of a price hike. This is where the ration card comes in handy. It enables you to get the benefits entitled to Indian citizens.

If you have a ration card, register into the website by entering the bar-code number, which is on the last page of your card.

If you don’t have a ration card, choose No.

You will receive a token number after accepting the application by TSO. You have to keep this token number for further follow up until you get your ration card.

The ration card also serves, primarily, as the legal identity proof required by the Government authorities. Wherever you need a valid, legal document to establish your identity, the ration card serves the purpose.

Even when you buy property or apply for a new loan, it is mandatory to submit an address proof. This is where the Ration card will do the needful and help avoid unnecessary trouble. Further, when you apply for a new phone connection or maybe even a passport or a PAN card, the Ration card will serve the purpose as your address proof. These days, the ration card can also be linked to your Aadhar card, which in turn can be linked to your bank account, thus serving as a multi-purpose document that facilitates a number of tasks.
