Srinagar/IBNS: Union Food and Public Distribution Secretary, Sudhanshu Pandey, Saturday held a meeting at Civil Secretariat to review ongoing programmes of the Department of Food Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs (FCS&CA) and Winter Stocking in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Union Food Secretary also reviewed the distribution of subsidised foodgrain to identified beneficiaries under the Prime Minister GaribKalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY), and the National Food Security Act (NFSA) amongst other relevant schemes.

The Union Secretary while reviewing the progress made by the FCS&CA in various spheres appreciated their efforts for streamlining the system and making it more transparent and target oriented.

Emphasising the need of improved technological interventions to automate all distribution operations and avoid any  leakages/diversion in the PDS, he said the government of India is taking several initiatives in this regard.

An alert should be made for repeated failed transactions at FPS shops to solve the problems, he added.

All Fair Price Shops in the J&K should be colour coded with an increase in the font size on the billboards for making them more visible and obvious, the Union Food Secretary said.
