The controlled distribution of resources or scarce goods is known as Rationing. It also restricts people to a certain amount of the stuff that they can consume; rationing is also controlling the size or demand by one for its 'rations' on the day of the distribution or at the allotted particular time.

The word Rationing is commonly used in the field of economics, it is frequently used to describe the roles of prices that play in the markets, however in the normal way rationing stands for "Non price Rationing".

Rationing has been long use in the defence services especially in the Navy, so as to make the supplies given to the sailors last during the entire voyage and to make sure that they last for the entire trip, rations are divided in equal portions for each sailor present on board the vessel.
