Re: My Ration Card
Your predicament is understandable. But you have to be patient. Initially you will have to make application for removal of your name from ration card at Kolhapur. If you are above 18 years, you have the right to do so. In fact, if you are not staying with your father, it is his duty to remove your name, and not claim the 'subsidized grains' in your name. If the office is not accepting the application (without your father's signature), please send it by registeres post.
If after say one month you do not get any reply, use the RTI. Apply under the Right to Information, asking for daily progress report on your application, and the reason for lack of action. Also ask if any ration was issued on your fathers card gainst your name. Ask for copy of record showing grain issued to you. this should do the trick, even if your father does not actually draw any food from ration shop.
Please go through this site for learning how to draft a RTI Application. A poorly drafted application will only waste your time and money, and increase your frustration. Also, visit our sister site, www.bighelpers.org. The experts their will guide you about any other avenues (Except RTI) available to you.
