                        In the year 1965 Statutory Rationing was brought into force in the whole of the State. The whole operation of the Rationing System in the State was then brought under the statutory Order styled "Kerala Rationing Order, 1966" promulgated by the State Government under the provisions of the Essential Commodities Act, read with the order of the Government of India, contained in GSR, 906 dated 9th June, 1966, of the Ministry of food, Agriculture, Community Development & Co-operation (Department of food) and this Rationing System is continuing in the State. The procedure for issue of Ration cards to families, appointment of dealers, imposing of punishment for irregularities committed by the dealers, empowering of Officers with specific responsibilities, etc., are streamlined in the Kerala Rationing Order, 1966. According to this Order, children between the age of 2 and 12 years are considered as no-adults and persons above 12 years are considered as adults.
