People Going Out For Supplies Can Be Detained Even With Ration Card?

Hanima Anand |Apr 16, 2020

It’s confusing when a woman reports that she was detained by New Delhi police when going out to buy necessities. She did show her ration card but wasn’t let go. Read on!

When PM Narendra Modi announced the India lockdown extension on Tuesday, Rabina, a woman in New Delhi rushed out to buy some supplies. She didn’t forget her ration card to avoid troubles with police, but to her surprise, Delhi police stopped her for no reason.

Delhi Police Detain People During Lockdown
Many people were detained for going out in Delhi.

The incident took place near Nizamuddin Railway Station when Rabina was going through an underpass to reach home. Police there were enforcing the lockdown order and insisted on stopping her even though she had her ration card and showed them the supplies she was carrying at that time.

Rabina tried her best to plea police to let her go home but nothing changed. She even called the government helpline at 1076 but she didn’t get any help.

Late that night, Rabina luckily met a Samaritan who helped convince the police that she was his neighbor.

People Buying Supplies During India Lockdown
The government allows each family to send one person out for supplies.

And it’s not happening to Rabina only. Many other cases holding ration cards are also stopped when going out for supplies during the lockdown. These records are particularly common in hotspot zones when the security force is tightening the surveillance.

In fact, the authority allows one person in each family to go out and collect essential goods on the condition that those who come to ration shops for supplies must maintain social distancing seriously.

However, policemen in some areas gloss over this policy and automatically stop everyone out. This poses threat to various residents in these places, especially the vulnerable. Sadly, people might die of hunger before coronavirus.

Poor People During Indian Lockdown
Poor people are the most vulnerable in this time.

In response to this concern, the Centre is giving out free rice and pulses for households in the next 3 months under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Anna Yojana, according to which each beneficiary gets 5 kg or rice or wheat and each householder get 1 kg of pulses.

We are not sure when the India lockdown is lifted but there’s no doubt that many serious problems are facing Indian people now, which are also jeopardizing their lives.
