The government will be spending Rs 830 crore more on this scheme," an official said.The Civil Supplies department has incorporated changes in procuring rice to reduce husk and chipped rice. It will also supply sortex rice to beneficiaries without stones or damaged grains."Using the volunteer system, quality rice will be distributed at the doorstep of the cardholders by taking their fingerprints and supplying ration in reusable bags with precise weight. Every rice bag is sealed and tagged with a unique code which leaves zero scope for adulteration," he said.
