Public Distribution System | PDS | EPDS | e-pds | Electronic pds

Public Engagement
With this Online Distribution Core, The Government connected with the food grain movement, allocation, distribution, thefts and grievances in real time. The cases of thefts as intercepted by a common man in the district can be instantly reported online or through mobile phones. The reported complaint then gets assigned to the authorized officials and actions are taken immediately. Unlike other system, in, the complainant is kept in the loop in this whole process of rederresal by sending SMS alerts and informing as and when the action is taken on registered complaint. This helps in engaging the beneficiaries in partnering with the Government in managing the supply chain fairly and efficiently.
GPS Tracking
The foodgrain movement is monitored in realtime with the help of GPS devices. These GPS devices when mounted over the ferrying vehicles, sends out the route information back to the system in realtime. This helps in catching the datapoints about the entire planned journey.

The electronics weigh bridges are used in this electronics system of distribution that allowed the weights to be directly entered to the system automatically without any manual intervention so that the chances of error and thefts are eliminated.

Hitherto, manual and slow core of Public Distribution System is now automatic and instant. The opacity of the distribution is now transparent. Information and reports are open in public space and available on the click. The disbursal Vs Offtake report can be generated at every node of the distribution chain. Like one can generate report for entire district wise, blockwise, panchayat wise, dealer-wise.

POS terminals
To tightly couple all the nodes of PDS supply chain, and to remove manual intervention, system provides Point of Sale terminals to the dealers. This POS terminal reads the barcoded coupons and registers the offtake by the beneficiary on to the centrally located MIS wirelessly. Food grains are weighed electronically at FCI, then at SFC and then dealers’ disbursal to the beneficiary too is logged in to MIS through POS terminal. The disbursal Vs offtake data is managed at MIS for each dealer. Total disbursal Vs offtake data is available for various abstraction of district like for whole district, block, panchayat, etc.

PoS terminals are low cost, low power devices designed especially for rural demography where there is a shortage of power supply. These devices have the capability to reduce bandwidth requirement keeping in mind the intermittent internet connectivity in rural setup.

Employment Generation
Apart from ensuring due entitlement of poor reaching to them, the automated PDS also becomes a source of employment generation. In pdsonline data center, young college passouts, men and women alike, can be seen generating the reports and resolving queries on toll free number.

When we contacted the developers of the system, Oglacs Software Pvt Ltd, they discussed their plan for the next phase where the system would be eco-friendly- a green solution. That would solve the problem interrupted power supply where devices and weighbridges shall be operated on solar energy. That make the solution not only eco-friendly but would also reducing a huge recurring cost incurred on alternate power supplies like generators.

“We plan to replace SFC and FCI laptops with low power devices like tablets those can be operated with the help of solar chargers. Similar is the plan for solar powered weighbridges. We intend to bring down the recurring cost substantially.” Engineering Director at Oglacs quoted as saying.

The Hon’ble Minister and the entire Gaya District Administration are hopeful that this State-Of-The-Art solution ( shall certainly help in bringing transparency, accountability and better manageability in the system and as a result, the due entitlement of the poor people reaching them smoothly. At various nodes where the system is already functional, various incidents of theft and frauds have already caught with the help of this system. With increased coverage of this system, in a very short period of time, the hitherto one of the most inefficient department of public distribution system, shall be a very effective tool in social upliftment of the common man.

Wireless Syncing iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with iTunes

One of the latest features in iOS 5 and iTunes 10 is the ability of wireless syncing your devices. What you need to do is to connect the device first to your computer and then making sure that it is plugged into a docking station or into a wall outlet directly. You don't need any help of anyone who works in a software development company, what you need is just a computer, your device and a network.
Before you start the wireless sync, make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes and also ensure that you have the latest version, iOS 5 running on your device. On top of that you will also make sure that you have your computer and device on the same network.

To begin with the sync, plug your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to your Mac or PC then follow the following steps:
ñ  Click on your iDevices name under Devices in the iTunes left panel.
ñ  Scroll down under options and check sync with this iPod Over Wi-Fi and then click Apply.
ñ  Now, plug your device directly to a wall outlet or into a dock (This is a part which involves a wire making this process not completely wireless).
ñ  On your device, go to settings >> General >> iTunes Sync.
ñ  Tap on Sync Now in order to start syncing. In this process, you will be able to see a series of screens while your device syncs with iTunes and you will also be able to monitor the syncing process on it

The synchronizing steps is complete. However the amount of time for the sync to complete depends upon the network speed and the amount of data you are syncing.

Even though this process is not completely wireless, it comes in handy if you rarely connect your device to your computer. Not only that, you can also sync your device with iTunes anywhere in the house provided both are on the same network. The cherry on the cake about the Wireless Sync is that you can continue using your device and iTunes while the synchronization continues in the background.
