According to Rajnivas sources, the Lt Governor wanted free rice to be distributed only to the needy in the category of BPL/AAY and the council of ministers has already decided to remove certain affordable families from the scheme.The civil supplies department should carry out this at the earliest.

Subjecting to these conditions approval was given by the LG.

The BPL/AAY families would get 20 kgs of rice a month while, the APL card holder will get 10 kg of rice.

Ms Bedi also suggested of settling the bills only after confirming the quality of rice supplied and that there should be periodical inspection of the quality.
