New Ration Card rules to avoid legal action

The central government began providing free rations to low-income families during the Corona pandemic, but the government has discovered that many ration cardholders are not eligible and are taking advantage of the free rations. Simultaneously, many cardholders who are eligible for the scheme are not receiving the benefit. The government has instructed ineligible individuals to surrender their ration cards immediately. According to reports, if an ineligible person does not surrender his ration card, he will face legal action following an investigation. Citizens who live below the poverty line and earn less than Rs. 10,000 per year are issued BPL cards. Who is required to surrender his or her Ration card?
