Chamarajanagar: MR Ravi, Deputy Commissioner of Chamarajanagar district, on Wednesday said that his administration has launched a drive with the slogan ‘no vaccination, no ration’. “To avail ration facility, the BPL and antyodaya cardholders, around 2.9 lakhs in number, will need to take vaccine compulsorily,” Ravi said.
In a bid to vaccinate everyone, Karnataka’s Chamarajanagar district has directed banks to release pensions to only vaccinated people. It has also made vaccination compulsory for availing rations from government-run outlets.
He added that the district has also given the slogan of ‘no vaccination, no pension’. “We have around 2.20 lakh pensioners in the district. We have instructed all the banks in this regard. These measures are part of our efforts to vaccinate everyone in the district,” the deputy commissioner said.
