This article covers three topics: the documents that you need to produce if you want to obtain a ration card (along with several suggestions and alternatives), and the procedure through which you can apply for the card both online and offline.
As mandated, every state government in India has a website through which you can get detailed information about applications, requirements and timelines. Here, for the sake of convenience and simplicity, we have compiled the information into lists.
