State government had taken decision to review all the details of ration card whereby the information can be verified since it has came into light that during election bogus ration cards were issued. But now this move is giving nightmares to Vashi citizens due to unaccountability of rationing staff. The last date of submission of revised information for ration cards is 31st December. With a few days in hand, citizens of all nodes have taken leaves from office to fulfill the formalities of their ration cards. But the pathetic functioning of the rationing office has left citizens hassled. This is evident from the long queues outside the Vashi Rationing Office and the scene inside that is even worse. Because there is no proper organization, no enquiry counter to provide information to people that is leaving citizens furious. One ration card holder alleged that despite fulfilling all the requirements he was being asked to come again and again. And in the midst of the entire system failure at the rationing office, officials are only tossing blames on one another, that too openly. The Asst Rationing Officer at the Vashi office blamed C C Jadhav – the Information and Rationing Officer for being negligent and inefficient. On the other hand, C C Jadhav refused to accept responsibility for chaos and mess blaming citizens for coming at the last moment. Rationing office woes of citizens are a never ending story. And this time too nothing has changed. Its unfortunate though that instead of attending to the grievances of citizens, rationing officers are tossing blames on one another.
