PLUGGING THE LEAKS
IMPROVING REACH & EFFICIENCY OF PDS
Coordinator -Anam Singla(email@example.com)
Identification errors(i.e unable to recognize the beneficiaries)-like
non existing beneficiaries i.e “GHOST” or duplicate i.e having
PUBLIC DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM(PDS) which provide food to 65million household suffering from the myriad amount of leakages and diversions of
subsidized food grains. According to the report about 58% of the subsidized food grains issues doesn’t reach the targeted beneficiaries..
Migrations-as the person would unable to get the benefit of these
subsidies due to far away from the domain ,where subsidies given.
Decentralization of system is absent-less power or access is given to
the states due to which the schemes couldn’t reach far away up to the
corners of the INDIA .for example BPL survey conducted by the
ministry of rural development doesn’t perform well instead it works
much more efficiently on the platform provided by the states.
Following Targeted scheme and not universalized-in case of
universalized scheme the leaking of subsidies be reduced as the
market price and the subsidized prices remains same .
Time delays – intermediates which are present at the various level
from the centre -> to states->districts->village level
due to which more time is being consumed on each transfer .
Lack of social security-villages where these schemes are implemented
according to the government mainly contain illiterates who are in lack
of security were unable to fully access these schemes.
Shifting priorities-as the requirements of a persons change from time
to time ,as it was better food initially then after ,better education for
his/her children then better living conditions and many endless needs
but due to this public distribution system was unable to give access

SCOPE OF EXISTING PDS
of foreign particles
and high moisture
content, which is
much poorer than
the market grains,
quality level of food
These error occurred
due to imperfect ways
of BPL identification.
Inclusion errors. like
when APL families
usually pick their stock,
which let BPL stock low-
down, impact over the
government’s budget .Highgearleakage
During 2003-04, the 16
large States were issued
14.07 million tonnes of
BPL quota from the
Central Pool. Of this,
around 5.93 million
tonnes had delivered to
the BPL families and 8.14
million tones intended
for them but never
PDS came into existence to create a healthy nation of its healthy people, but existing system doesn’t provide us that much guarantee. The
quality of food grains declined and are just sufficient to make you sick. Even the quality being distributed to APL & BPL families are different.
WHO WILL TAKE CARE OF ME??
REBUILDING THE STRUCTURE OF PDS THROUGH DIGITALIZED FPS(FAIR PRIZE SHOPS)
& AADHAAR CARD
A SHORT GLIMPSE-HAVE A WATCH
Installation of digitalized &
Web System on FPS
Effective Delivery System &
of digitalized system
• WOMEN EMPOWERMENT-Increase to a certain level.
• MIGRATION-will definitely increase.as in case of Delhi
where migrations are decreasing in recent news .
• GHOST EXISTENCE-will get removed totally=0
OUR ESTIMATIONS=NOT EXACT
WE WILL TAKECARE OF YOU..
EFFECTUATION THROUGH AADHAAR CARD
AADHAAR AS UNIQUE EXISTENCE
too much cards make it bulky for our system
so here , we work only with the aadhaar card
which provide unique no. to each and every
AADHAAR SELECTING THE BPL’S
AADHAAR ID’S TO CENTRE
• on the basis of these aadhaar they select the BPL’s through the procedure of
appointing the government worker in the specified area , who with all the
documents including the electricity bills and some amount of income of the
individual and his family ,decides whether he should be IN or OUT.
• If IN, then the aadhaar id’s of the whole family will be submitted along with
the documentary information. //PRECAUTION-integrity to all id’s should be
• These documentary information along with the aadhaar id’s through web
goes to the BPL officer of the districts(here we are creating a new office &
say we appoint BPL officer having the status of GRADE-A.)
WORKING OF AADHAAR ON FPS
These id’s or say it as unique number will be
given to the centre directly , which through a
certain software help create a list of id’s which
1.A BPL individual comes to the depo’s along with the aadhaar card.
2.Then his id should be matched by the id’s in the list.
3.If matched //CONDITION APPLIED//
4.Then through the identification of his finger prints or eye’s recognition h/she
will be given the packet full of rice(just say it in the figurative way…never
LET’S INSTALL A FAIR PRICE SHOP(FPS)
SETUP OF DIGITIZATION SYSTEM
WHERE TO FIT FPS?
CONNECT WITH THE CENTRE
System contain computers on fair price shops ,well 3G internet , scanner for
finger prints.. and packets of food which we are going to distribute.
Setup without connection will become effete , so it should be well
connected and efficiently communicated.
INSTALLATION OF SOFTWARE
We try to provide each and every privilege to BPL individuals ,so why not
we try to facilitate FPS as close as possible to them.
BY DOING SO-
• Their transportation cost will remain with them.
• Easily availability of food packages.
• Women safety –they easily go alone to FPS.
//PROVIDE FPS AFTER PASSING EVERY 1 TO 2KM//
PACK THE FOOD…!!!
BARCODED PACKETS Equal size packets-//LETS WORK WITH AN EXAMPLE//
1. Lets put 1kg in each packet with a barcode on it.
2. Barcode will give the acknowledgement of food transferred and our
system’s efficiency .
3. After packaging during delivery of stock, each packet coming out of
the private company(which the govt. is hiring in contract) will be in
the record through bar codes.
PACKETS WORK IN FPS- Every BPL holder will register from
which particular FPS he will buy his products. In this way every
FPS will need a counted no of packets . During selling , packets
will be again scanned, hence calls for the accountability of the
• Leakages will remove to a large extent.
• Accountability will enhance.
• Fallacies during weighing of food grains will completely sweep away (as
we are directly handing over packets to the beneficiaries ).
DELIVERY & ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
USE OF TRUCKS(our way for transportation of the packages)- when trucks are
loaded, their information like truck no, source place, destination, quantity to
be transfer needs to be registered before delivery.
After reaching destination, an acknowledgement of receiving needs to be
send by receiver through the web based system . This will help in creating a
database and an averred transactions.
1.We are going to provide a shop no. which is also unique.
Example-beneficiary will decide from which shop no. h/she going to fetch the
packet full of grains.
//HELPS IN PROPER DELIVERY = LEAKAGES AVOID//
2.For this system to work a BPL individual should have to register his or her
id’s no. to particular FPS ( example –say before 10days so that FPS maintain
his data & that much amount he will delivered.

RECORD =PROPER IMPLEMENTATION
1.BPL FAMILY RECORD -Here we will inspect after every 1year whether
h/she is in or out //inspection done by the govt. employee which will
be hired by the Sub divisional Inspector//
WHO WILL TAKE RESPONSIBILITY?
BPL INDIVIDUAL ITSELF – Here we make it mandatory that if any
individual wants some benefits and continue to receive it, they have to
come here for their inspection.
//SIMPLE AND EFFICIENT WAY//
2.RECORD AT FPS-individual should register his id’s to particular FPS
before 10days of collecting the packets.
If in case of migration ,registration from that particular shop should be
canceled by the individual
and new registration on that new area (after migration)should be done.
//In this case new FPS head will conform through its old FPS head//
3.Record at each BPL office –its under the BPL officer
4.Record under centre will directly link up with each BPL office & its
