Making PDS Transparent

For effective implementation of Public Distribution System (PDS), Government is implementing of a scheme on “End-to-end Computerization of Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) Operations”. The component-I of the scheme comprises digitization of ration cards/beneficiary and other databases, online allocation, computerization of supply-chain management, setting up of transparency portal and grievance redressal mechanisms. Besides, Central Govt. has also asked States/UTs to opt for any of the two models of Direct Benefit Transfer – Cash transfer of food subsidy into the bank account of beneficiaries or Fair Price Shop (FPS) automation, which involves installation of Point of Sale (PoS) device at FPS, for authentication of beneficiaries and electronic capturing of transactions. The cash transfer of food subsidy is being implemented in 3 UTs namely Chandigarh, Puducherry w.e.f. 1-9-2015 and partially in Dadra & Nagar Haveli w.e.f. 1-3-2016. So far, more than 2,45,706 FPSs are automated across the country. A Statement showing the progress made under ‘End-to-end Computerisation of TPDS Operations’ is given in the table below
