Following the public request to extend the deadline for renewing Public Distribution System (ration) cards, the Government has allowed online renewal of cards from March 1 to 31.

Those who had failed to renew the cards could now long on to http://210.212.62.90:8080/newfcp/cardvalidity.do and get their cards renewed.

A release from the district administration said that after renewal, the cardholder should take two copies of the renewal slip, sign on the same and handover a copy to the person in-charge of the shop concerned.

The cardholder should paste the remaining copy on the ration card.

The press release added that such cardholders should, however, renew their cards before March 31, as the day happened to be a stock taking day.
