Aiming to check pilferage in the food distribution system, Fair Price Shops across the national capital will be equipped with Point of Sale (PoS) machines by March next year, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday. The GPS-based system will help in keeping track of commodities sent from godowns to the shops and the amount received. Ration card beneficiaries will also be linked with the Aadhar biometric system, he said.
It will pave way for speedy inclusion of people, who are in actual need of such benefits, in the public distribution system and the work will be completed by March 31, 2017, he told a press conference.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal also announced that around 17,000 guest teachers working with Delhi government schools will get fixed monthly salaries of around Rs 32,000 – Rs 34,000 per month.
