The Assam Government, through the Public Distribution Scheme (PDS) of the Nation Food Security Act, 2013 issues ration cards to certain families of the state. A ration card is a document through which families of low income (as determined by PDS), or below the poverty line can avail food grains at a subsidised rate. Ration cards are now issued under the NFSA Scheme in Assam.
