99 pc people in Delhi slums want improvement in PDS

About 99 per cent of people living in slums in Delhi feel the public distribution system should be improved while 37 per cent say they did not get a ration card after applying for it, as per a latest survey.

The study, said most of the respondents did not support the proposed concept of cash transfer of subsidy to BPL card holders' accounts instead of providing cheap foodgrain. About 52 per cent felt the cash given might not be used for ration and is likely to be spent on other needs.

Some 37 per cent said they did not get a ration card after applying for the same while 14 per cent were not able to draw ration because of unstamped APL ration cards.

The survey was carried out in 14 different areas of east, south, north-east and north-west Delhi among 593 ration card holders.
