    • The Ration card scheme is good but not the execution. Now Aadhar Card and PAN Card are linked. So computer system should decide which colour ration card should be printed for the applicant. If this happens, definitely corruption will get reduced to some extent.
      Still, we cannot apply it online. The process should be like passport.
