    Thanks for the article. I shifted my residence to another area. i.e from Valasaravakkam to Mahalingapuram. I do not have any proof of new address. How I can get the ration card address changed?? Wherever I go, they ask for proof address. I have Voter Id, bank account etc at old address. it is my own flat I have moved now. The proof mentioned in the list, I do not have. My ration card is only for Identity purpose and I do not get any items or any free gift like Color TV/Grinder/Mixie/Any flood relief grant based on Ration Card ..etc.

    I really find difficult. Can any one suggest me how I can my address changed?? It is quite frustrating to get NOC from old office (which is at Villivakkam) and again to apply for change of address at T Nagar.

    Can anyone guide us in this regard please.

    It was a pleasant surprise to me to read an article that ration cards can be extended by online. I tried it and it was easy and user friendly. my appreciations to the leader and team in coming out with this type of online system which will improve the image of Tamilnadu Govt. The facility for getting new ration card through online also will be very useful to the families as the literacy level has improved in urban and semi-urban areas. Pilot project may be launched in Chennai on trial basis and can be improved after getting feedback. This Govt can do wonders like Gujarat which is a leading state in providing online services on many areas.

    i failed to renew my ration card in time, i do agree ignorance of law is not an excuse, but please do provide me the options to renew my Ration Card as it is a must document. penalty can be imposed by charging an reasonable amount for late renewals, but not straight away cancelling the card. when people of 1.97 crores out of 1.87 crores had renewed there policy, which is almost more than 90%, govt can take steps to renew the card automatically, for those shifting from current locations can give a intimation to the concerned office.
