One more kg of free rice for poor in state

  • The state government plans to distribute an additional one kilogram of free rice and one kilogram of tur dal at concessional rates to ‘below poverty line’ (BPL) cardholders.ArkaRakshk3
  • Presently, the government is providing five kg of food grains per person free of cost under the Anna Bhagya scheme. This includes three kg of rice and two kg of wheat/ ragi/jowar.
  • Karnataka is also bringing in a protein component under the public distribution system scheme for the first time by introducing tur dal.
  • Tur dal would be sold at a subsidised rate of Rs 30 a kg.
  • Supplying free rice would cost the exchequer around Rs 1,450 crore annually.
  • With the introduction of the coupon system and Aadhaar seeding, the government will save nearly 40,000 metric tonnes of rice per month.
  • By subsidising tur dal, the government will incur an expenditure of Rs 360 crore annually. The decision to distribute more rice and sell subsidised tur dal follows demands made by BPL families
