R. Arivanantham

KRISHNAGIRI: Hand-held billing machines with GPRS facility will be provided to all the fair price shops in Krishnagiri districts soon.

This will enable the cooperative societies to monitor the sales, stock details in shops under their control on a real-time basis. It will help societies concerned to plan stock of goods.

A. Krishnamoorthy, Joint Registrar of the Cooperative Societies, told The Hindu that the facility will be introduced in all the 464 fair price shops under the control of the cooperative societies.

He said the task of procuring the billing machines, giving sufficient training to officials and staff has been entrusted with the state-owned the Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu.

Officials and technical staff of the Chennai-based Coromandel Informatics India Limited, which is supplying the machines and technical support, gave training to Deputy Registrar P. M. Murugesan during the last week of May.

He and officials from the company would train the rest of the PDS staff. The billing system could contain malpractices and would be monitored from the district headquarters on real-time basis.

With the success of the vehicle monitoring system that carries essential commodities from the TNCSC godowns to fair price shops, the government has decided to introduce the hand-held billing machines at the ration shops, the official said.
