A ration card is one of the official documents which is issued by a state government. As defined by the government, different households fall under certain categories on the basis of their family income. Based on that, these families are allowed to purchase food grains at subsidised rates through the Public Distribution System or PDS. The PDS carries on its functions under the National Food Security Act (NFSA). The amount of rationed goods that a family is entitled to is also decided by the type of the ration card issued to them.
