How to Get a Ration Card

Every city has a circle office, where you can get an application form to apply for a ration card. The form is called as form no 1 and the cost of the form is fifty paisa. The customers who want to apply for a blue ration card can get the application form for free. The government has also designed a website for the same. One can log on to the website and click on the link for the application form and you will get a format of the form. One can even download the form in a word file and can get a printout of the same. Similarly, when you click for a kerosene oil card, you will get a format of the blue card. You can hereby download this format, fill the relevant information and submit it in the circle office in any of the working days. All the circle offices are open from 9.30 in the morning until 1.00 in the afternoon.

The website also provides the address of all the circle offices in India. One has to click on the relevant area. While submitting the application form, the documents that have to be submitted along are

  • Duly attested photographs of the family head and they should be passport sized and three in number. The photographs can be attested by any government gazetted officer or a member of parliament or assembly or any municipal councilor.
  • If you are the owner of the premises, then you can submit the residence proof, registry of the house, allotment letter, power of attorney or the house tax receipt. In case you are a tenant, you can submit the agreement or the non-objectionable certificate of the property owner or something similar.
  • Surrender or deletion proof of last card.

If you are not able to provide any residential proof, in that case the FSO of that circle will inquire from the neighborhood, taking written or recorded statements of witnesses, two in number from your neighborhood. Fifteen days time is allotted for the preparation of the ration card.
