New ration cards in Hyderabad, Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh are issue by the Mandal Revenue Officer – MRO after the district collector sanctions the ration cards and enquiry is conducted about the applicant.  There will be a Master Register which holds the details of the ration card holder assigned to particular dealers.  The records are maintained dealer wise and will include the name, serial number, card number, address of the card holder, occupation, family members, annual income etc.

Apart from applying to new cards, applicants to come on transfer to other Mandals can also apply for ration cards in those particular places.  For this they have to surrender their old ration cards.  The MRO will verify the certificates and issues ration cards.  Changes in ration cards such as the address change, addition or deletion of family member names are also handled by the MRO.  The responsibilities of MRO also include cancellation of ration cards or fair price shops if any complaints are received about them.
