Peddapalli: District in-charge Collector S Prabhakar Reddy directed the ration shop dealers to distribute the rationed items through the e-POS (Point of Sale) system on time to all the beneficiaries for preventing irregularities.
Inaugurating an awareness camp on the e-POS system for the officials concerned at Amarchand Kalyana Mandapam in Peddapalli town on Tuesday, Prabhakar Reddy said that the State government was taking right steps for distributing the subsidised items to the genuine beneficiaries without giving any scope for irregularities. In this connection, the State government had introduced the e-POS system in the ration shops, he added.
The in-charge Collector said that some of the ration shop dealers were diverting the rationed items illegally to other places. To prevent such irregularities and to maintain transparency in the distribution through the public distribution system, the Commissioner in the Civil Supplies Department has initiated steps for introducing the e-POS system in the ration shops.
He said that only the genuine beneficiaries would get the rationed items sold at the fair price shops with the introduction of e-POS system. Such items were distributed here only through e-pass machines. All the welfare schemes would reach the beneficiaries when everyone discharges their duties sincerely with commitment, he added.
The Collector also said that the two day-training programme was organised for creating awareness among ration dealers and officials on the functioning of the e-POS system. As such, they must utilise this opportunity, he added. The District Civil Supply Officer Rehman, District Manager and several ration dealers of the district were present on the occasion.
