Global Positioning System (GPS) devices will be used in Chhattisgarh State to track the movement of vehicles carrying subsi-dised rice for the poor. All the 600 vehicles carrying subsidised food grains, distributed through Public Distribution System (PDS) in the state, will be equipped with the GPS devices. These devices will give complete information on where and for how long the vehicles carrying rice are halted after load-ing at the warehouses and before unloading the rice at PDS shops.
The move will ensure effective implementation of the Rs 1,000-crore, Chief Ministers Food
Security Scheme, under which the state govern-ment provides 35 kg rice a month at Rs 2 and Re 1 per kg to the poor families.
