Telangana Govt to monitor supply of PDS kerosene online

Hyderabad: The Telangana Government today decided to monitor supply of kerosene, being provided to the poor through fair price shops, online to ensure transparency.

Civil Supplies Commissioner C V Anand, who held a meeting with officials of his department, oil companies and wholesale kerosene dealers, asked the representatives of dealers not to commit irregularities in the process of supply.

“The CCS has instructed all concerned officers to bring the kerosene oil also in ePDS application (software) so as to ensure that as in the case of other commodities, the kerosene should be supplied to the card holders from 1st to 15th of every month,” a State Government release said.

The release quoted Anand as saying in the meeting that stringent action will be taken against wholesale dealers diverting kerosene to other than the intended beneficiaries.
