Gujarat establishes cashless system for PDS


Gujarat has become the first state in the country for establishing the cashless system in its public distribution system (PDS) of food grains. The beneficiaries who are eligible for subsidised food grains under the National Food Security Act (NFSA) will now need to carry only Aadhaar cards for getting their food grains in Gujarat. 

According to the Food Ministry, there are over 81 crore beneficiaries under NSAI in the country.
