Before 15th of October 2022, at all fair price ration shops in TN, the new method of providing ration items to the public by means of Iris method would be implemented. This was as per Mr. Chakrapani.
The minister at the Secretariat spoke about how in TN through fair price shops ration items lie rice, pulses etc are being provided to all the ration card holders at cheap rates. It is known that certain times the instrument used for keeping fingerprints of the consumers at these ration shops become non-functional. To avoid this issue, finger prints would be replaced by Iris technology and arrangements have been made regarding this. If this becomes operational, then at all the fair price ration shops steps would be taken for Iris registration.
It is worthy to note here that across India in several states steps are being taken for 100percent Iris registration for buying ration items at the fair price ration shops. It is now brought out that by 15th of October in some ration shops trials would be carried out.Point is that those differently able persons and elderly persons etc could fill up the forms at the ration shops for recommending the person on behalf of them to busy the ration items.
