Ministry of Consumer
Affairs has launched a National Transparency Portal for Public
Distribution System. The portal has been developed with the objective of
providing all PDS related information through a single platform in the
public domain. The portal contains information relating to Fair Price
Shops (FPSs) and ration cards attached to the FPSs. Information on FCI
and State storage godowns with capacity utilization and data on Central
Pool stocks is also published on the portal. The portal further hosts
information like the monthly allocation orders, State-specific commodity
sale prices, lifting position, etc. for public view.
All States/UTs have been requested to maintain and update the data on
the portal through use of PDS application software for end-to-end
computerization of TPDS. The Transparency portal may be accessed at
http://pdsportal.nic.in. Citizens may also access the Portals of
State/UT Food & Civil Supplies Departments through the links provided.
