Many of the city’s rationing offices are reeling under dilapidated condition. For the same, MLC Mhanda Mhatre, who recently took over as the President of Rationing Dakshta Committee paid visit to all the rationing offices of the city. Issues like shortage of staff, shortage of space, dilapidated offices are some of the problem that the city’s rationing offices face. However, if we talk about numbers then there are around 90 rationing shops that fall under three rationing offices in Vashi and the reason why their maintenance also becomes difficult. To solve their issues, the Rationing Dakshta Committee was formed which is presided over by MLC Mhanda Mhatre. Recently she paid a visit to the rationing offices in Vashi to study its condition. Speaking to the media she informed that very soon rationing offices would be opened in Airoli and CBD. She further added that she would meet Food and Civic Supply Minister Sunil Tatkare regarding this. She also stated that computers would be given to the offices for better functioning.
