Ration card holders to get SMS alert
Consumers will get SMS alerts when their authorized ration dealers (ARDs) collect food grains from the authorized wholesale dealers (AWDs) or AWDS lift stock from FCI depots as per the project titled FMPDS (Food Grains Movement for effective Public Distribution System).
When dealers collect food grains from wholesale dealers, the rationing inspectors will enter the quantity of grains collected in the department's website. Then the registered ration card holders will get SMS alerts about the time and quantity of food grains collected by their ARDs
The SMS alerts will also be sent to the department's panchayat-level vigilance committee members, police officials and the taluk supply office concerned
