Hi all, I want a new ration card for me and my wife. I can't remove my name as well as my wife's name in the existing ration cards. Since its a love marriage. We are not in contact with our family. If we contact them there is no proper response. So we need a new ration card but we can't remove the names. Is it possible to get a new ration card? if it is, Can anyone tell me the procedure? Thanks, Rajaa
Hi to all, I am glad to share my experience in getting a new Ration card for me and my family in the Chennai city by spending not more than Rs.25/- ... Yes only Rupees Twenty Five with no bribe... within a period of 45 days. Almost everyone in Tamil Nadu would say as if all Government jobs can be fulfilled only by means of giving bribe to the government officials. But I want myself to differ from that statement. Only when we are not perfect enough in the required documents, there the bribe comes into picture. When we have all our documents in place with no holes in it then for sure you can achieve getting the Government job done without any bribe I believe (since I am Successful). Let me list out the steps that I have followed in order to get a Ration card on my name Step 1: I removed my name from my Father's Ration card and got a name deletion certificate (with in a period of 7 days), also I took a Xerox of the page in the original Ration card, where the information for deleting my name is mentioned. Step 2: I removed my Wife's name from her Father's Ration card and got her name deletion certificate, also took a Xerox of the page in the original Ration card, where the information for deleting my Wife's name is mentioned. Step 3: I took a Xerox copy of the Ration card of my house owner as the address proof of my stay in the rented house, along with a letter from my House owner Step 4: I took a Xerox copy of my Son's birth certificate Step 5: With all the above said proof I filled in the Ration card application form with the help of a person who writes it in the Civil supplies office. I gave Rs.20/- for the form as well as for filling in the application Step 6: With a passport size photograph pasted in the form I submitted all my documents along with my marriage certificate and invitation (only the name deletion certificate should be in original, take Xerox copy for your reference) Step 7: I submitted all the relevant documents on 3rd of December 2011 Step 8: With in a period of 2 weeks a person from Civil supplies office will come for verification to confirm whether you are staying in the mentioned address. Even if your house owner confirms that you stay there, then no issues. Step 9: If at all some documents are missing out, then the verifying officer will request you to provide those documents. Better do it immediately as and when the person reports you, if there is any delay from your side then there are chances of your documents to go missed out (if your original name deletion certificate is missed out, it is very difficult to get a duplicate of it ) Step 11: If there are no queries from the verification officer, then it means, your Ration card is all set to go for Printing (just give him a call and confirm). Step 12: After 2 weeks time of the Civil Supplies officer's visit at your home, you can directly go to the Civil Supplies office and inquire about your Card Status Step 13: They would ask you to call a number to confirm when will be your Card ready for collection Step 14: After the confirmation via Call you can go to Civil supplies office to collect your Ration Card by giving Rs.5/- as printing cost Step 15: Finally now the time comes… You have your most longed Ration Card on your hand with your Photo printed on top right corner…..hurrrrray……. Step 16: Final step is to take the Ration Card to the Ration shop in your area, (the shop number will be printed on your Ration Card with its address) for getting a seal from the manager of the Shop. It means your Card is ready to purchase commodities from that shop from the consecutive month onwards. Note: The manager in the shop might ask you to leave by giving the card to him saying that he is busy and will give the card with seal in an hour or so… Please don’t give your card to him and leave, as he will not give you any acknowledgement for the same. If he misses it out, then no way you can get a duplicate Card So these are my experience in getting a new Ration card on my Name. And I am successful without giving any bribe… Hope it would be useful for many like me. All the very best, get a New Ration Card with no bribe Jaihind!!

Dear Friends, I would like to share my experience while obtaining a new ration card in chennai. I had applied for new ration card in thiruvottiyur civil supplies office in chennai in the month of september. I had to submit mine and my wife's deletion certificate and my son's birth certificate along with the application. I had obtained my deletion certificate from mumbai, it was in marathi language and the name was also not written completely. It was not accepted by them. They asked me to get it in english. But, going back to mumbai and getting the certificate again was impossible for me then. After enquiring with other officers in the ration office, i came to know that i can bring a true translation of the deletion certificate on an affidavit duly stamped and signed by any NOTARY PUBLIC who is a lawyer, you'll get many at high court. I had to pay Rs. 200 for the affidavit. I could attach it along with my deletion certificate. i had to produce an address proff for which i used the postal address proof card provided by indian post office. After submission they gave me a slip (kind of acknowledgement card). I was told that i will get the ration card in 60 days. It was nearing 60 days but no official came from ration office for verification which is supposed to happen after 10-15 days of form submission. Exactly on 61st day i sent them RTI application. I got information on ration offices in chennai, heads of ration offices from following links: http://timepassuworld.blogspot.com/2...d-chennai.html http://infoworld4ualways.blogspot.co...ow-to-get.html http://right2information.wordpress.c...-july-19-2006/ http://wserver1.tn.nic.in:9005/ccs_c...vance_home.jsp Exactly on 30th day from RTI application date, officer arrived at my residence for verification. He verified our details and signed on the slip marking completion of verification process. Now the next step was only to get the ration card. The officer told me that after verification they send the details for ration card printing which takes generally takes more than a month (It depends on the printing dept.). On 1st of february i got an email from ration card office (CIVIL SUPPLIES AND CONSUMER PROTECTION DEPARTMENT) that my ration card is ready and i have to collect it after 15 days. Fortunately, i got my card in my hands on 16th feb as mentioned by them without further delay. I forgot to mention that, the officer came for verification to our residence explicitly mentioned that it is because i applied for RTI, they came so early for verification else it would have taken months and months. Anyway i got my card. For all those who would like to apply for ration card in chennai, i would like you to ensure the following things: 1). If you do not have anything to be used as an address proof. immediately apply for postal address proof card. You will get it in may be 15-20 days 2). While obtaining deletion certificate, ask the officer to provide it in english necessarily. Ensure that your names are written correctly and completely (FIRSTNAME MIDDLENAME(father) LASTNAME(surname)) 3). Immediately after 60 days apply for RTI. Dont forget to attach the acknowledment slip. Unlike other government organizations which take Rs.10, civil supplies needs Rs.50 DD in favour of "Public Information officer, Civil Supplies and Consumer Protection Department" You'll get the address of your nearest ration office in the above links. While applying for RTI you can use the same format available in this website, modify it little bit for ration card. I am attaching my application. During this whole process i strongly felt that there should be a way to apply for RTI along with the application (let them take some extra money) but time to time update should be sent to us instead of making us wait for the stipulated time for applying for the RTI. This is the second time i used RTI successfully, the first was for my passport from lucknow paasport office which i got after 9 months of application (after 1 month of RTI application) as if they were delivering a baby. I would like to mention that i did not spend even a penny as a bribe........Thanks to RTI RationCardRTI.doc
