AP EPDS: AP Ration Card Apply & Status @ epds1.ap.gov.in
AP EPDS Ration Cards are an official document issued by Andhra Pradesh State Governments in India to households that are eligible to purchase subsidized food grain from the Public Distribution System (under the National Food Security Act). They also serve as a common form of identification for many Indians.

Under the National Food Security Act, Andhra Pradesh Governments in India have to identify households that are eligible for purchasing subsidized food grain from the Public Distribution System and provide them with ration cards. There are two types of ration cards under NFSA:

PDS ration in Andhra Pradesh - AP EPDS Ration Card (epds1.ap.gov.in)

PDS rationing in districts of Andhra Pradesh can be an illustrative example of using modern technology to prevent retail corruption. Ration cards and corresponding bank accounts of the heads of families (HoF) have been linked with Aadhaar Numbers of family members.

When a beneficiary buys rations from a PDS shop, their eligibility is authenticated through an Aadhaar KYC handheld device. The PDS computer system reads out the quantity eligibility and balance of each item in the local language. After purchase, the balance quantities for that month are read out. The buyer pays the open market rate to the PDS shop. A computer prints a receipt showing all items purchased, balance items, money paid and subsidy amount. The subsidy amount is credited to the beneficiary's bank account under the DBT program. Because the PDS computer system is connected to a central server, beneficiaries can buy ration items from any PDS shop. The system is flexible and provides access and options to the public that was not seen before in PDS.

Once all PDS shops in the state are linked to Aadhaar-enabled central server, beneficiaries can buy their rations anywhere in the state without changing their ration card, which will benefit migrant workers in the state. Similarly, subsidized LPG is linked with the Aadhaar Number and delivery is made at market rate. The subsidy amount is credited as DBT to the eligible beneficiary. Leakage and diversions of subsidized commodities provide no benefit to middlemen and retail corruption comes to a halt.

While submitting application for Ration Card in Andhra pradesh, Form D1 needs to be submitted to the nearest rationing office.

Types of AP EPDS Ration Card


AP EPDS Priority Ration Card - priority ration cards are issued to households that meet the eligibility criteria set by their state government. Each priority household is entitled to 5 kilograms of food grain per member per month.
AP EPDS Antyodaya (AAY) Ration Card - Andhra Pradesh EPDS ration cards are issued to "poorest of poor" households. Each AAY household is entitled to 35 kilograms of food grain per month.



Before the NFSA was enacted, there were three types of ration cards - 

  • AP EPDS Above Poverty Line (APL) Ration Card - APEPDS ration cards that were issued to households living above the poverty line (as estimated by the Planning Commission). These households received 15 kilogram of food grain (based on availability).
  • AP EPDS Below Poverty Line (BPL) Ration Card - APEPDS ration cards that were issued to households living below the poverty line. These households received 25-35 kilograms of food grain.
  • AP EPDS Antyodaya (AAY) Ration Card - APEPDS ration cards that were issued to "poorest of poor" households. These households received 35 kilograms of food grain.
