Ration Card On-line Renewal - Procedures and Due Date


Ration Card On-line Renewal 
Procedures and Due Date


The households with the "Yellow" and "White" ration cards ("N" Ration Cards) should renew their cards as their existing validity has ended on 31st December 2013. The Ration cards issued by the TamilNadu Civil Supplies department will be of many types, but majority of them belongs to the below four categories: 

1. Green Card : All Commodities Card, which are issued to those who opts for all the commodities from the ration card. ie. Rice + other essential commodities.

2. White Card : Sugar Cards, are issued to those who opts for sugar instead of Rice as in Green Card. Ie. Sugar + Other essential commodities (No Rice).

3. White Card : No Commodity Cards, are issued to those who don't want any commodities from the Public Distribution System (PDS).

4. Yellow Card : Tatkal Card issued only for the address proof. 

For category 1 & 2, the renewal has been done at the same ration shop where they are procuring the commodities. An additional sheet has been annexed at the end of the ration card. 

There has been a problem for the cards pertaining to category 3 & 4, who are just using the card for the address proof. Since they are not purchasing any commodities from the ration shop, it is obvious that they are under no obligation to come to the ration shop. And many of them were unaware about the validity of their cards. It came into light only when the other officials / authorities rejects these cards as invalid when it has been submitted as address proof. 

Now it is the time for these 2 categories - White (No Commodities Card) & Yellow (Tatkal Cards) cardholders to renew their cards so as to use it as a valid address proof. It just a few minutes work, we can renew the cards online . The procedure is explained below: 

How to renew Online: 

1. Click here to go to the Online Renewal portal.

2. A window like this will open



3. Enter the card number and fill the necessary details.

4. Once we submit the form and our form got registered, Validity extension slip with letter "N" will be generated.

5. Take a print of this extension slip, sign it and paste it in the ration card. 

Last date for renewal : 

The cards should be renewed on or before 31st January 2014

Note : This on-line renewal is only for the category 3 & 4 mentioned above (White Card - No Commodities and Yellow Card - Tatkal Card) and not for the categories 1 & 2 (Commodities card).

Since the due date is getting nearer, requesting all the White & Yellow Card Holders to renew their cards at the earliest. Share this with your friends so that they can also be aware.

Meet you all in my next post.

With Cheers,
Deepak Raghuraman

  1. Truly, a very precise post for people like me who search information on ration cards. If possible, can you please post some information on how to change a Sugar ration card to No Commodity ration card?

    1. Yes you could change it but you have to visit your nearest municipal office or your nearby ration office (department which allows you to change the address or add or delete the names) you should ask your ration shop workers about this place. When you go there you should fill a form and submit relevant documents and handover the ration card. The time taken is varied for different reasons. You will have nothing to pay for this.

  17. Hi,
    We have a ration card in Chennai, but since we were out of station for a few months ( 4 months now), we were unable to use the same, ie.; we couldn't purchase ration in this duration. Could you please tell me, if our card would have any problem with this( will get invalid), or can we still go and buy ration from this month onwards?
    Thank You.

  22. When trying to renew the N card, the message 'the ration card number given is not available' is displayed for some cards. Do not know how to proceed. Thinking of asking the respective ration shop people. Will post their reply soon.
