           It has been several months since covid-19 began  to spread throughout our state. At the very beginning of the spread of covid-19 in our state,  our State Government and the central government had started distributing all the free rations. Similarly free kits were distributed.  That kit contained 17 items. About 88 lakh ration card holders are eligible for this benefit.
