LG suspends e-PoS system of ration distribution

 

By Vinit Wahi / New Delhi

Lt. Governor, Delhi, Anil Baijal received the proposal for suspension of e-PoS devices from the Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and concurred with the same. He hoped that all legal, financial and administrative implications of this decision have been taken into account by the elected government. Lt. Governor stated that we should not end up discarding the very technology that enabled detection of fraudulent transactions in the first place.

He noted that introduction of e-PoS devices is part of a national level reform in the Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) to enable end-to-end tracking of food grains. The objective of e-PoS devices is to ensure that only genuine cardholders or his or her family members whose names are mentioned in the ration card can buy the subsidized commodities. When the ration is taken, the e-PoS device captures the buyer’s biometrics which is verified online with the Aadhaar database. The device helps record all FPS transactions electronically, which enables real time accounting of opening stock, daily sales and closing stock which in turn facilitates monitoring & detection of fraudulent transactions.

Mr Baijal further stated that the introduction of e-PoS devices by the Delhi Government was a step in the right direction to ensure that only the eligible beneficiaries get the rations and there is no diversion. The department had also observed that only within two months of introduction of e-PoS devices, 98.75% of ration had been distributed online through e-PoS devices and operation of e-PoS devices had entered a crucial stage to weed out ineligible card holders from the system which is going to save around 16% of ration. Hence, the ration so saved could be used for distribution to lakhs of needy persons who are in the queue.
