State Govt’s special package for Kali Puja & Chhat
Like last year, this year too the State Food and Supplies Department has introduced a special ration package on the occasion of Kali Puja and Chhat. Included in the list of products are edible oil, atta and sugar.
The package is available to people enlisted in the Antyodaya Anna Yojana and to those belonging to special categories, both under the National Food Security Act.
About 3 crore people will get the benefits. The same package was made available for Durga Puja too, which ran from October 9 to 23.
For the occasion of Kali Puja and Chhat, the package is being provided from October 30 to November 13.
A litre of mustard oil is available for Rs 101 and 500ml for Rs 52, while a litre of rice bran oil is available for 94 and 500ml for Rs 48.50. Five hundred gram each of sugar and atta is also available to the people, which could be bought twice during the 15-day period.
