Ration card rules in bangalore

Taken from:

Life is so much easier if you have a ration card. Whether you buy the rations doled out or not, it is wiser to possess one, because it has its uses - whether it's at the passport office or the RTO.
For getting a ration card afresh, here's what you have to do:
•You have to fill in an application form available at any of the five range offices of the Food and Civil Supplies department.
•You will also need your voter identity card, and a court fee stamp of Rs 2.
•Attach proof of residence. For this, you can offer any one of the following - rent agreement document, tax paid receipt, telephone bill, gas bill, electricity bill, bank passbook; even a letter mailed to the house will do.
Submit these at the jurisdictional range office. There are five of them: East - near RBANMS college, West - Bhashyam Circle, Rajajinagar, North - Vyalikaval, South - 5th main road, Chamarajpet, Central - opposite Vishveshwaraiah museum.
Submit the documents, get an acknowledgement. An inspector from the department will visit your residence to check if you really reside there, after which he sends his report to the office. And the ration card is ready for you to collect in less than a month.
On the day you go to receive your card, pay Rs 45, and get a computerised card, complete with your photo in it.
Surrender certificate
In case you are applying for a ration card and you have held one earlier at another place, you have to get a surrender certificate from the previous place. A ration card will be issued afresh on the same day.
Deletion certificate
In case there has been a bifurcation in the family, if a member has married and moved away, the name has to be deleted. For this you have to get a deletion certificate and apply with the other documents. The card will be issued on the same day.
Addition certificate
If a child's name is to be included, produce the birth certificate. If you don't have one, get a certificate issued by the school authorities. The card will be issued on the same day.
According to officials at the Food and Civil Supplies department, Chamarajpet, there are three kinds of ration cards issued - yellow (earlier green) for those below the poverty line; blue card or the photo card for those above the poverty line; and the white card or what is called the honorary card, for those who want the card only for address proof purposes and not for rations. This is issued within 10 days of your applying for it.
