PROJECT

Aadhaar/ EPIC seeding of ration cards/ Online allocation: As per instructions of Central and State Government, verification of existing ration cards and issue of fresh ration cards are being undertaken by seeding various details like EPIC no/ Aadhaar no/ Bank account no and Mobile no. Government is insisting on online allocation of foodgrains under NFSA/13 (National Food Security Act/13). Wherein those ration cards which are not seeded, will be summarily rejected and foodgrains curtailed.

Hence it is required that all concerned beneficiaries of NFSA/13 (PHH and AAY families) should submit their details at the earliest (Aadhaar, EPIC, Mobile and bank account numbers)

FUTURE COURSE OF ACTION

As a precursor as well as final conclusion for end to end computerization, Department of Food & Civil Supply is planning to completely digitize the database of ration cards and beneficiaries. Further as a logical conclusion to ePDS, smart cards are to be issued to NFSA/13 beneficiaries wherein PDS foodgrains and SKO will be issued online through POS machines in FPS (Fair Price Shops).
