In order to streamline the public distribution system the government has taken many measures in this direction so that the left outs are also included to get the required ration and other benefits.
Recently the government said that in order to streamline and make the Public Distribution System more credible and transparent, the Department is vigorously pursuing Aadhaar seeding of beneficiaries in all categories in a mission mode so that all the genuine beneficiaries get identified and avail their entitled quota in a smooth and transparent manner.
In the event of any beneficiaries being without Aadhaar, the DCs have been requested to order a special drive for enrolment of such beneficiaries in coordination with the field functionaries of FCS&CA Department, the government of Jammu and Kashmir recently said.
The Department is employing innovative measures to make the Public Distribution System credible and lay down an institutionalized framework for effective implementation of NFSA. Government said in terms of the J&K Food Security Rules-2021, notified by the Department recently, measures like, fool-proof procedure for identification of beneficiaries, setting up of Internal Grievances Redress Mechanism along with Vigilance Committees to be set up at Village/Ward, Block and District levels and a mechanism of Social Audit have been put in place.
These measures shall help to further strengthen the Public Distribution System with the participation of all stake-holders right from grassroots level and help ensure transparency, accountability and proper functioning of the system in Jammu & Kashmir.
