What is EPOS device?
In order to ensure that the beneficiaries of the Public Distribution System (PDS) do not get less ration, the shops of ration dealers have been connected with online electronic point of sale i.e. POS devices with electronic scales. With the installation of this device, there is no scope left for disturbances in the ration weighing. These machines will work in online mode as well as offline. The government has taken this step to increase transparency in ration shops and to prevent cases of underweight. This system has been implemented since November last year.
Through the National Food Security Act, the government is giving 5 kg of wheat and rice every month to about 80 crore people of the country at a subsidized rate of Rs 2 to 3 per kg. At the same time, the government has announced to give free food grains to BPL families till December 2023. The government said that this decision has been implemented with the aim of bringing transparency and improvement in the operation of the Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) under the National Food Security Act.
