To bring transparency, inclusion and exclusion errors,  and minimise other issues pertaining to distribution of PDS items in the state, the chief minister launched the Fair Price Shop Automation system.

 After launching the system,  the chief minister said that such system would bring transparency and streamline the distribution of PDS items to the beneficiaries. 

Under this Fair Price Shop (FPS) automation system, fake and bogus ration cards would be easily identified which will help minimise leakages in the distribution of PDS items, he added. 

He said that beneficiaries will get food grains through ePOS (Electronic Point of Sale) device with proper authentication like Aadhar or OTP.

Singh further highlighted that the FPS automation would be made available in 10 FPS for the first phase in the state.  In the state, there are 2324 Fair Price Shops and 23,87,949 beneficiaries with 5,69,688 ration cards. 

The monthly allocation of National Food Security Act (NFSA) rice in the state is 131632.45 quintal, the chief minister said. The chief minister reiterated his government’s commitment on bringing good governance and positive changes in the state from the grassroots level.

On the occasion, officials of the consumer affairs, food and public distribution (CAF&PD) made a demonstration on the usage of the ePOS machine.

Among others, the function was attended by state deputy chief minister Y Joykumar, CAF&PD minister Karam Shyam, health minister L Jayantakumar, forest minister Th Shyamkumar, PHED minister Losii Dikho, agriculture minister V Hangkhanlian and water resources minister Letpao Haokip.
