Punjab CM kicks off allotment of fair price shops under ‘Ghar Ghar Rozgar te Karobaar Mission’

In a bid to promote livelihood, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday virtually kicked off a state-wide pro-poor scheme for allotment of 7,219 fair price shops (FPS) under his government’s flagship programme – Ghar Ghar Rozgar te Karobaar Mission.

As a token gesture, the Chief Minister handed over allotment letters to five beneficiaries – Jatinder Pal Singh, Poonam, Jaswinder Singh, Vivek Sharma and Sukhdev Singh, all from Roopnagar.

The event was marked by simultaneous distribution of 370 allotment letters to the beneficiaries in 64 Municipal Committees by various ministers, MLAs and other dignitaries across the state, in the first phase of the scheme.

Amarinder Singh said the initiative would be instrumental in improving the economic condition of people, besides further strengthening the public distribution system to ensure seamless, fair and timely distribution.

He asked the allotees to ensure that the ration meant for the poor reaches the genuine beneficiaries without illegal diversion of food grains.

The CM also said that nearly 30,000 beneficiaries (average family of four) would be benefitted through the scheme.

He asked the Food Department to look into ways and means to supplement the income of FPS owners by facilitating these outlets as points of sale for additional consumer items.
