  1. Manhour spent by a public,in a ration shop is not taken into account by any government officer.This time has to be considered.If a daily wage earning person has to spend 3 or 4 hours in a ration shop he foregoes his half day earning which may work out to 300-400₹ . If he is sent back without ration items for some reason he has to undergo the same ordeal once again.This has to be thought over with sympathy by the government staff and controlling officials.
