Hyderabad residents can now register for ration distribution via SMS

The Hyderabad district administration has set up a system allowing people to get themselves registered for rations via SMSThey have to send an SMS with the word ‘Ration’ and their CNIC number and send it to 88434. They will then get a token via mobile which will allow them to receive the rations. If it’s a repeated CNIC number we get a message, said one official. 

The district administration has developed an app to help manage this system. It has a data bank of over 9,000 names and the app tells them whether the person who has registered has already received rations.
