Thiruvananthapuram: The last date for the distribution of Onam special kits through ration shops has been extended till September 3.

The bedridden patients and Covid patients can seek help of others to get the Onam kit. If the ration card holders face any difficulty in receiving the Onam kit, they should contact the district and taluk level supply officers.
