Why is Ration Card Needed

Ration card is a mandatory document for all individuals in India. This card can be used at ration shops where food products can be purchased at lesser rates, which is a great economic help. This is also a very well accepted address and ID proof. This is an important document in case you need to apply for other government documents like passport, PAN card or a domicile certificate or to even get the name registered for electoral rolls to get a Voter ID.

There is a color demarcation in the ration cards as well and in case the economical standard of the family is below the poverty line, then the government will give them blue colored ration cards, where they can get additional provisions at ration shops. The government also offers temporary ration cards valid for shorter periods of time which will help provide relief under special circumstances.


A ration card is considered to be the best ID proof for any individual.
