Thiruvananthapuram: Less than half a year since its implementation, the state government has finally decided to revoke the shift-based system in ration shops. The ration shops will function from 8 am to 12 noon and 4 pm to 7 pm from March 1 onwards.
Minister for Food and Civil Supplies GR Anil said that the ration distribution for February will continue until March 4. Meanwhile, the ration shops will return to their regular timing instead of the shift system introduced in November 2022.
Ration customers were facing difficulties due to the shift system. The rising daytime summer heat was aggravating this. The move comes at this juncture.
