Essential Commodities under PDS <

 

The Government allocates foodgrains @ 35 kg per family per month for all accepted number of Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY), Below Poverty Line (BPL) and Above Poverty Line (APL) families in Assam. The monthly quota of levy sugar is 700 grams per person per month.

 

Government of India allocates PDS Kerosene to States/Union Territories (UTs) on quarterly basis for distribution under PDS for cooking and illumination only.  Further, distribution within the States/UTs through their PDS network to card holders as per their respective criteria, is the responsibility of the concerned States/UTs.

 

The total quantity of foodgrains, levy sugar and kerosene allocated and lifted by Assam under Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) during the last three years is as under:

Lower offtake by the State is mainly in the additional allocation attributable to State’s inability to absorb additional allocation due to further subsidization by the State Government to the targeted beneficiaries, short placement of stocks at some Food Corporation of India (FCI) depots due to movement bottlenecks resulting from inadequate placement of rail rakes. In order to improve lifting, Government has been favourably considering the request of the State Government for extension of validity for lifting of the allocated quantity under TPDS. Further, the Government has also been taking up the matter with the State Government through periodical meetings and communications at various levels with them.

 

         This information was given by the Minister of State (IC) for Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution Prof. K.V.Thomas in a written reply in theRajya Sabha today.
