Ration Card DBT Status: On Monday, July 10, 2023, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah launched the direct benefit transfer under the Anna Bhagya program. This measure has temporarily excluded millions of additional people, but it is expected to provide assistance to 1.06 crore ration cardholders in the state. According to the Karnataka Ration Card DBT Status, approximately 22 lakh families below the poverty line will not receive immediate aid due to a shortage of bank accounts. The state administration has announced the distribution of an additional five kilograms of rice, but instead, it is sending money (₹170 per month) to the beneficiaries’ bank accounts.
