PDS in Karnataka is well managed: Govind Gaude

Belagavi, Oct 1 (UNI) The Public Distribution System of food and civil supplies in Karnataka is being managed well and could be emulated in other states, Goa Civil Supplies and Tribal Welfare minister Govind S Gaude said here on Monday.
Speaking to reporters after holding meetings with Belagavi Food and Civil Supplies officials he said making civil supplies online will be the best practice and Goa would soon initiate programmes in this direction on line with those implemented in Karnataka.
He said villages in Goa need to be brought under internet to ensure seamless PDS system. But only 60 per cent of the State was connected with Internet and this hampered progress in streamlining civil supplies.
He said the government was committed to provide PDS to tribal population in Goa and had initiated many programmes to reach out to the population in the villages to provide necessary commodities.
''What we want is that PDS reach out to every remote village in Goa. My government is paying very good commission to the PDS shop agents that is Rs 280 per quintal, far less than other states. So we have challenges to implement the system facing all these odds, the minster said.
He said the Goa government held a primary meeting with the officials of Belagavi district five months ago and this was a follow up meeting.
''Goa government will follow the Belagavi method of digitizing public distribution system for transparent ration distribution in Goa. Belagavi district has successfully digitalized the PDS system by providing internet connectivity and Point of Sale (POS) devices to every Ration distribution centers. Minister said.
Around 15 lack population in Goa including six lakh migrant residents. There are around 3.57 lack ration card holders in Goa including Karnataka and other migrants . Linking the Ration cards with Adhaar number is under progress. At the same time, we are gearing up to digitization and bio-metric system, the minster said.
