Date:22 July 2020

The Delhi government on 21 July 2020 approved a scheme for the home delivery of ration supplies, fulfilling a key election promise made earlier this year. Announcing the Mukhyamantri Ghar Ghar Ration Yojana scheme after a cabinet meeting, Chief Minister Mr Arvind Kejriwal said the scheme, once launched, will also be synced with the central government’s ‘One Nation, One Ration Card’ scheme for inter-state portability of ration cards.
