Public Distribution System was setup with a noble intention of providing subsidised amenities to the needy. Overtime it has become one of the most abused system. People in control have been involved in financial scandals, depriving millions of food and basic necessities which would have been otherwise available via PDS.

On the other hand it has also been a huge drain on state exchequer. Tax payers money is getting concentrated in the hands of a few corrupt people instead of getting equitably distributed for a good cause. State governments keep on spending funds for PDS without bothering who is benefited by the money.

State administrations are requested to improve the efficiency, remove too much bureaucracy from the procedures so as to make the whole process, from allocation of funds, to final distribution of ration, easy and transparent. Transparency and accountability only will end corruption.
