The state government will provide ration cards to sex workers and destitutes without insisting on identity and residential proof, Food and Civil Supplies Minister Chhagan Bhujbal said on Thursday. The department has sought a detailed list of sex workers and destitutes from various non-government organisations and the State Aids Control Organisation.
“Officials issuing the new ration cards have been asked not to stress on documents such as identity and residential proof. They should be exempted from providing such documents,” Bhujbal said.
The state urban development department plans to amend the Development Control and Promotion Regulations-2034, which will allow the BMC to construct houses for project-affected persons (PAP) on its own land.

Officials said the department has sought suggestions and objections for amending Clause 3.1 I of Regulation 33(10).
BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal said on Thursday, “The BMC will need at least 50,000 PAP tenements in the next two to three years to push development projects. At present, the supply of houses from SRA is negligible. This decision will enable us to create a sizeable pool of PAP tenements.’’
