Public Distribution

TPDS: Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS) is operated under the joint responsibility of Central Government and State/Union Territory (UT) Governments.

Instructions have been issued to State/UT Governments for involving Panchayati Raj Institutions in the functioning of the TPDS. The instructions, interalia, stipulate that the list of BPL beneficiaries should be displayed in the Fair Price Shop (FPS) as well as the office of the Gram Panchayat for public scrutiny.
