UP Govt To Start Doorstep Delivery Of Food Stock To Avoid Pilferage

Lucknow: A new system of doorstep delivery of food stocks is being introduced by UP Government directly to the ration dealers under the Public Distribution System (PDS) from Monday in order to control pilferage.

One block in each district is identified by the government for the implementation of the new scheme after the positive results of a pilot project launched in a few blocks of three districts.

“We tried the pilot project in two blocks each in Prayagraj, Moradabad, and Banda. Now, after the success of the project, the government has decided to implement the scheme in one block of each district from Monday”, said Additional commissioner, food and civil supplies, AK Singh.

“Later, the government may decide to replicate the model for all the blocks across the state”, he added.

Under the new system, the food grains will be delivered directly from FCI godowns to the ration dealers.

Earlier, a cost rate of Rs 15-18 per quintal used to be paid by the government, depending on the distance between a dealer’s shop and block godown.

The new system might be helpful for the government to save such expenses apart from avoiding leakages in the long supply chain.

“Soon after a delivery van starts from an FCI godown, the ration dealer concerned will get a message on his registered mobile number informing him about the same including exact quantity loaded and to be delivered. The delivery man will deliver the rations to the dealer, only after he feeds the OTP sent on his cell phone” according to AK Singh.

The delivery vehicles are fitted with GPS devices for they would be under constant vigilance from the control room.

“We have also mapped the routes that the delivery vehicles are supposed to take to reach ration dealers. Any route diversion for them will get detected immediately” said Singh.
