Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) is operated under the joint responsibility of Central Government and State/UT Governments. The Central Government is responsible for procurement, allocation and transportation of foodgrains upto the designated depots of the Food Corporation of India. The operational responsibilities for lifting and distributing the allocated foodgrains within the States/UTs, identification of eligible Below Poverty Line (BPL) families, issuance of ration cards to them and supervision over distribution of allocated foodgrains to eligible card holders through the Fair Price Shops (FPSs) are of the State/UT Governments. This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, Prof. K.V. Thomas in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.

 

                Shri Thomas said that in order to maintain supplies and securing availability and distribution of essential commodities under TPDS, Public Distribution System (Control) Order, 2001, has been notified by the Government of India on 31st August, 2001. This order, inter-alia, provides that State Governments shall issue an order under Section 3 of the Essential Commodities Act for regulating the sale and distribution of essential commodities. The licenses to the fair price shop owners shall be issued under the said order and shall lay down the duties and responsibilities of the fair price shop owner.

 

           Since 2001, State/UT Governments have been given the flexibility in the matter of fixing the margin for the Fair Price Shops (FPSs).  The rates of commission to FPS owners are, therefore, to be determined by the respective States/UTs. Each State depending on their policies have fixed rates of commission to FP Shop dealers, the Minister added.
