As i have read that RANS is extended to poor patients with income certificate certified by the concerned and a BPL ration card.there are places where BPL rarion card are not equally distributed and many poor do not possess a BPL card. Therefore what can be submitted in place of a rarion card. Please help so that patients with no BPL card can be looked after.
