The Government under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is committed to the ideals of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayaas” to build an Aatmanirbhar Bharat. The Government has been working to ensure basic necessities to all citizens of the country through various programmes and schemes for the holistic welfare of the poor and marginalised sections of society. These are aimed at serving the last person at the bottom of the pyramid. In the last eight years, there has been an exponential leap in ensuring last-mile delivery to the poorest sections of society. Whether it be in the unprecedented number of houses built (PM Awas Yojana), water connections given (Jal Jeevan Mission), bank accounts (Jan Dhan), direct benefit transfer to farmers (PM KISAN) or free gas connections (Ujjwala), there has been a perceptible improvement in the livelihoods of the poor.

As India celebrates 75 years of its Independence, Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Government has stepped up efforts to engage with citizens in participatory governance and delivery of schemes and programmes. As a part of this last-mile delivery approach, MyGov is organising the Sabka Vikas Mahaquiz Series, which is part of an outreach effort to build awareness in citizens. The quiz aims to sensitise the participants about the various schemes and initiatives and how to avail the benefits. Massive participation in the quiz series will deepen government engagement at the grassroots level. In this context, MyGov invites all of you to participate and test your knowledge of New India.
This quiz has been launched on the birth anniversary of Bharat Ratna Dr Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar on 14th April 2022. Babasaheb Ambedkar is an icon of social justice and empowerment, and the Government has been following his footsteps in serving the poor, marginalised and vulnerable sections of society.
The first quiz will be on the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY) under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution. Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PM-GKAY) is a pro-poor scheme intended to reduce the challenges encountered by the poor as a result of disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The immediate goal was to ensure that no poor or vulnerable person or household went hungry. Under the scheme, all National Food Security Act (NFSA) beneficiaries are entitled to 5 kgs of free food grain every month. This is over and above the highly subsidised food grains available to NFSA beneficiaries.
PMGKAY is a unique scheme to combat the effects of the covid pandemic on the poor of the country. As a result, more than 1,000 Lakh MT foodgrains have already been distributed under the scheme. The estimated financial outlay is about Rs. 3.4 Lakh Crore. As Prime Minister Modi said, “Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana is working to ensure that nobody sleeps on an empty stomach.”
The scheme has been successful in keeping extreme poverty low during the pandemic as evidenced by a working paper prepared by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). “Extreme poverty was as low as 0.8 per cent in the pre-pandemic year 2019, and food transfers were instrumental in ensuring that it remained at that low level in the pandemic year 2020”, the paper said.
How to avail the scheme?
All NFSA beneficiaries (Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY) and Priority Householders (PHH) identified by State/UT governments i.e. around 80 Crore beneficiaries are covered under PM-GKAY. They are automatically covered and can avail the free food grains from Fair Price Shops using their existing NFSA ration cards. No new ration card or registration is required. A toll-free helpline number ‘1967’ has been set up to redress beneficiaries’ complaints and grievances related to the Public Distribution System.
Android based Mobile Application ‘Mera Ration’ (https://tinyurl.com/fp2tmd97 ) can be used by beneficiaries to view their NFSA as well as PM-GKAY food grain allotment and balance quota. The facility is currently available for those beneficiaries who are successfully verified in the central ration card repository. The app is currently available in 13 languages viz. Assamese, English, Hindi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Urdu, Gujarati, Marathi and Bangla, and can be downloaded freely from the Google Play Store for Android mobiles. The Annavitran Portal (http://annavitran.nic.in) has a dashboard for monitoring the distribution of PM-GKAY Foodgrains.
