However, this is strongly opposed from Kolhapur district.
Any person in the family of the beneficiaries of the Food Security Scheme who are doctors, lawyers, architects, chartered accountants, also pay business tax, sales tax, income tax, and also own four wheeler vehicles excluding taxis and rickshaws. The government expects that there is a pensioner or employed person in the family, whose income is more than 45 thousand in rural areas and more than 59 thousand in urban areas, to opt out of this scheme.
According to the government decision dated 19 October 2016 ‘Get out of food grain subsidy’ The objective behind this scheme is that such a person should go out with a big heart to participate in this scheme and help the needy and deprived people to get the benefit of the scheme. But it received very little response.
