Government of India allots rice, wheat, sugar and kerosene to Government of Karnataka every month. The allotment is based on the number of ration cards.
The objectives of the Public Distribution System are :

  • To protect the low income groups by guaranteeing them supply of certain minimum quantities of food grains at affordable price
  • Ensuring equitable distribution.
  • Controlling the price rise of Essential Commodities in the open market.

Essential Commodities are distributed through Fair Price Shops to ensure that the basic food requirement of the population is met on the one hand and food security to the poor on the other. Food grains are issued to the poor and vulnerable sections of the society at affordable prices.
