The new system verifies beneficiaries through Aadhaar authentication and e-PoS devices are integrated with electronic weighing machine to ensure correct amount of rations to beneficiaries.
The minister visited nine FPSs and a number of deficiencies and shortcomings were noticed.
Four FPSs were not displaying mandatory information on the display boards and one shop was found closed. Hussain directed officials to take stringent action against the dealers concerned.
