Ration card or ration stamp is a card issued by a government. It makes it easier for the cardholder to receive food or other items that may be available in small quantities during war or any other emergency when rationing has been applied.  

It has been implemented on both sides even after the end of the war, when Mashrabian's efforts have gradually returned to normal.  The ration stamp is also brought to the dealer to keep the necessary food grains at any time.
