The Haryana government on Friday said free ration for the month of April will be given to those living below poverty line and poor people of other categories. It will reach the concerned depots by April 5.

As per chief secretary Keshni Anand Arora all the anganwadis in the state have been directed to ensure that the one month’s dry ration reaches the doorsteps of beneficiaries within the next three days.

The finance department will release 500 crore for all municipalities to effectively deal with the crisis and all deputy commissioners will ensure that the funds are only used for maintaining essential services, Arora said.
