Now Applying Ration Card in Online - Bangalore

State government's Food and Civil Supplies (FCS) department has been accepting online applications for new ration cards at here. Here are some details you will need to fill online application form:  Click Here

-Ward number, taluk, city and district name
-RR number and location code of your electricity connection (from BESCOM bills)
-Personal details like address, phone number, job, DOB, number of years you have been staying in the house etc
-Details of relatives members to be included in ration card
-Total annual income of the relatives
-Details of your LPG connection (agency name, consumer number, name of connection owner), if any. This knowledge will be cross checked with FCS's existing knowledge of valid LPG connections.
-Number of your elderly ration card, if any
-Aadhar number, PAN card details etc are asked, but are not compulsory.
No documents must be submitted online. On submitting knowledge, you will get an online acknowledgement form with a receipt number. Acknowledgement will even be SMSed to the mobile number that you had provided in the application form. There is no deadline for applying.
"The process is the same as the earlier LPG verification - if RR number matches, card is approved. For those with LPG connections, both RR number and LPG verification is mandatory before ration card is approved," says Gangadhar, Deputy Director (Bangalore Urban) at FCS.
General public are not allowed submit LPG verification details online directly anymore, but they can get it done through their respective LPG agencies. "Half of all ration card applications - about one.5 lakh - is from Bangalore Urban alone. They have not started issuing cards yet, it will take some time," says Gangadhar.
The department had suspended about 12 lakh ration cards in urban areas in the state in the coursework of its earlier LPG verification drive. In Bangalore, about 58,400 APL ration cards have been cancelled, 16,000 are under verification, and about 25,000 have been accepted as valid. "This is mostly because the correct RR number was not provided. These candidates can still get their gas agencies to enter the correct number and get their cards approved," says Gangadhar.

Using the UID and obtain government services

After successfully issuing over 39 lakh aadhaar cards in the state, the government has decided to allow citizens to use the card to make use of various services. Karnataka residents can now legally use aadh card as proof of identity and proof of residency to apply for various services offered by government agencies like BBMP and RTO. The State Government has issued an order in this sense the direction of all department heads to accept aadh card instead of other cards as voter ID, PAN card, ration card etc., as proof of identity and address. 

Table II, municipal corporations, local self-government bodies, government agencies and cooperative societies have attempted to recognize aadh card. According to the government order, authentication aadh card is now possible at any time and anywhere. Speaking to this newspaper, a senior department official e-government, said the card aadh will open a new era in public service delivery and ensure cent percent transparency. 

"Until now, many beneficiaries were the use of duplicate identity cards to reap the benefits. But we're expecting big changes after the introduction of cards aadh" he said. "The state government intends to make the plan serves as the social security pension (Treasury Department), the irrigation pump sets (energy), belonging to society (cooperative apartment), Bhagyalakshmi project (department of women and child development), LP gas connections and BPL cards (food and supplies department of civil aadh) and the scheme of Rural Employment Guarantee (RDPR) enabled.

Now, a aadhaar card to identify the property

Come January next year and the State government will launch ''Urban Property Ownership Record (UPOR)''scheme in Bangalore, wherein unique legal property ownership identity cards will be issued to property owners.

The UPOR will soon be a must for all land-related transactions. “We will start the initiative in Bangalore by first selecting 50 wards of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. An estimated four lakh properties will be taken up in the first phase. We plan to start issuing UPORs within the next eight to nine months,” Rajeev Chawla, Secretary (Bhoomi and UPOR), told reporters in Bangalore on Saturday. The move is akin to Aadhar numbers which serve as unique identity to citizens. The Department of Survey Settlement and Land Records has already started UPOR pilot project in Mangalore, Bellary, Mysore, Hubli-Dharwad and Shimoga in public private partnership mode.

The UPOR will have the map of the property, its GPS coordinates, history of previous ownership, mutation of property records in case of sale/partition among others.

“In urban areas, unlike in rural, clear ownership data and titles are not available. The UPOR will serve as legal ownership documents for urban properties. The card would be required for all land-related transactions and can be procured from citizen services centres by the end of next year,” Chawla said.

The task of urban property records will consist of surveying and mapping of all properties, verification of ownership, changes in records due to new construction, change in land use and mutation of records in case of sale and partition. Chawla said the department plans to cover all the 16 lakh properties in Bangalore in the next two years. The process of collecting and computerising property data of 25 lakh properties in Mangalore, Bellary, Mysore, Hubli-Dharwad and Shimoga is in full swing, the officer said.

As the UPOR project involves mapping and measuring of all properties, it will also help in detecting encroached properties. “In Mysore, survey shows that there are 2.75 lakh properties, while the city corporation had only 1.75 lakh properties recorded”, Chawla pointed out.
