NFSA implementation in Pulwama


Pulwama: Regarding the implementation of National Food Security Act (NFSA) in the district, the District Development Commissioner Pulwama Mr. Niraj Kumar, today chaired a meeting here.

DDC while directing the concerned officers to complete all the formalities in the fixed timeframe said that implementation of the NFSA will not only make available ration as per the 2011 census but will also put an end to all the complaints regarding ration distribution in the district.

DDC stressed upon the officers of Revenue and CAPD Departments to work in a collaborative manner so that proper identification of the families as per the already formulated guidelines under this Act is achieved before the deadline.

Under NFSA, people will get assured supply of ration right at their doorsteps in a hassle-free manner.  Any person who is denied ration shall be given ‘Food Security Allowance’ through an inbuilt mechanism which has been incorporated in the Act at state, district and block-level.

DDC directed the CAPD department to make aware people about the NFSA through awareness camps in every tehsil of the district. (CNS)
