Thiruvananthapuram: The option for rectifying errors in ration cards through Kerala government’s Thelima (clarity) project started on November 15 and is nearing its deadline. The rectification process ends on December 15 and before that ration card holders can correct the mistakes that would have occurred during data entry in the Ration Card Management System as part of the renewal of cards in 2017.
The card holders can either make the corrections through drop boxes at ration shops or through online mode. Here’s how to do it:
Drop boxes: The ration card holders need to take photocopy of their card. A request mentioning correction along with contact number should be written in a white paper. Both the copy and the correction mentioned need to be pinned and dropped in the drop boxes kept at ration shops. The officials concerned will contact the card holder and assist the person in correcting the errors.
Online mode: Card holders can either approach Akshaya Centres or individually login to the website of the Civil Supplies Department portal: https://ecitizen.civilsupplieskerala.gov.in/. Akshaya Centres charge for this.
Any changes in the name of members in the respective card, their age and address, their relationship with the cardholder and modifications in LPG-power connection data can be updated in the card with the new scheme. However, changes in ration card type, income, measurement of house and details of vehicles cannot be rectified through this scheme.
