Government restores provision of 'ration in kind' to military officers in peace areasNEW DELHI: The government has restored the provision of 'ration in kind' to military officers in peace areas, a defence official said on Tuesday.

The facility was withdrawn by the government in 2017 and it started paying a certain amount in instead of the ration to defence personnel.

"The Government of India has approved the proposal of the Ministry of Defence for restoration of the 'ration in kind' to the defence officers posted in peace areas," a defence official said.

The decision to withdraw the provision of 'ration in kind' had met with criticism from several quarters within the three services of the armed forces.
