As hundreds of migrants continue to travel a long distance during the coronavirus crisis, Union Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Saturday appealed to State governments to immediately lift food grains and pulses from the godowns and distribute them for free within a fortnight to eight crore migrants who neither have Centre nor State ration card.
In the national capital, about 7.27 lakh migrants will get free 5kg food grains per person and 1kg chana per family for May and June.
“If the number of migrants exceeds the current estimation of eight crore, the Centre is ready to provide additional grains for free supply but the identified person should be genuine which State governments have to validate,” Mr. Paswan told the media via video conference in New Delhi.
The allocation has been made considering 10% of the existing 81 crore beneficiaries under the NFSA ( National Food Security Act).
