ePDS on full swing in Tirap Denhang Bosai
KHONSA, June 10: Everyday scores of consumers throng the newly inaugurated ePDS counter
at Khonsa. The consumers are not only overawed by the efficient functioning of the
ePDS but are also happy to reap the multi-dimensional benefits it provides. It may
be mentioned here that the ePDS, the first of its kind in the state was launched
here by the Speaker Wanglin Lowanglong on May 31.
When asked to throw light on key features of ePDS, DF&CSO Amit Bengia said “Under
this system, allocation to the FPS is based on replenishment basis instead of a blanket
allocation. Further, the challan issued by the warehouse (WSN) will be crosschecked
by a 5 member team at the village level at the time of delivery to the FPS. Without
this challan duly verified by at least 3 members of the FPS level vigilance committee
and countersigned by an administrative officer, new allocation shall not be made
to the FPS. The completed challans will be scanned and saved in the system for the
purpose of office record. This will ensure that there is no pilferage of commodities
between the warehouse and the FPS dealer.
• The ePDS system operates on a novel, non-replicable coupon system. These coupons
are issued to the beneficiaries at the time of issuance/renewal of the ration cards.
Twelve coupons are issued for one year (1 coupon per month) which will have to be
submitted to the FPS by the beneficiary at the time of purchasing his/her ration
quota. FPS owners will submit these coupons to the ePDS counter (DC/DF&CSO office)
to get allocation for the next month. The system will automatically generate monthly
sub- allocation order on the basis of the coupons submitted by FPS dealer. This process
will largely eliminate any excess or unclaimed ration by beneficiaries i.e will shift
the allocation system from a blanket allocation to a more relevant & accurate ‘Replenishment’
• Fresh ration cards are issued to all beneficiaries. During the fresh issuance several
family related data are being captured like group photographs, HoF photograph, HoF’s
digital fingerprint. A significant amount of duplicity has been removed at this stage
itself. As time passes and more information is captured, data analytics is used to
find defaulters on a regular basis. This will be made possible as all data shall
be digitalized. ePDS system enables quick issuance and modification of ration cards
through a centralized; online database and approval mechanism. Erroneous or incomplete
applications are rejected by the system immediately hence the applicant (beneficiary)
also does not have go back and forth to submit a correct application. This has the
* Minimum time wasted by the department in processing erroneous applications.
* Significant decrease in time for issuance of ration cards to beneficiaries.
* Significant reduction in time for filing applications.
• Under the ePDS system, all essential functions of the department related to distribution
of essential commodities and issuance of ration cards to beneficiaries have been
captured. Using a multi-level online approval mechanism; the hierarchy of authority
and flow of work has been replicated from the physical system. Using strong login
controls to the ePDS system, it is ensured that no step is missed or carried out
by un-authorized personnel. Further each activity in the system can be tracked and
reported hence enabling quick and decisive resolution to errors / malpractices. The
Directorate of Food & Civil Supplies can formulate and implement policy / procedural
changes centrally. These changes once captured in the ePDS system will take effect
immediately, hence eliminating delay and inconsistency in implementation of crucial
• He also highlighted the Key benefits of ePDS in this way;
* Bogus/ghost ration cards will be completely eliminated.
* System is web-based, not destroyable at the time of natural calamities etc
* Permanent database - searchable data record.
* Duplicate ration card can be issued on the spot.
* System will warn if another application is submitted by an already enrolled beneficiary.
* Reduction in under and over allocation of ration to FPS.
* Reduction in diversion of essential commodities.
* Containment of arbitrary decision making at all levels.
* Induction of transparency and accountability in operations.
* Reduction of redundant workload of department employees.
* Fast dispersal of stakeholder grievances.
* Dissemination of information as per public requirement.
* Management information system for monitoring and quick decision making.
* Protecting the interest of all the genuine stakeholders
* Faster reaction time for the department (Authority) on key policy/management matters.

The greatest extravaganza and Africa
ITANAGAR, June 10: FIFA world cup 2010 is all set to kick off with Africa readying
to showcase beautiful side of the continent to rest of the world. When FIFA decided
to host 2010 world cup in South Africa, the whole of Africa erupted in joy. In the
past often been in news for all wrong reasons, Africa is hoping to erase all the
pain and suffering it has witnessed by joining this celebration.
Decades of civil war have never let Africans live peacefully in their own land. In
many countries like Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan thousands of people have died because
of raging civil war leading to international outrage. Lawlessness prevails in many
countries of Africa which are hampering their development. These are the reasons
why till date several parts of Africa live 19th century lifestyle. In terms of human
resource development, Africa has long way to go before it achieved substantial standard.
In my college days, a Somalian friend had once told me, “In Somali if you wear some
gold stuff, new clothes and walk around the road, easily people will target you.
People kill each other even for little sum of money. It’s quite tough to live in
some countries of Africa though it is one of the most beautiful places of this earth.”
Despite every kind of trouble, African has always shined in sports area and has given
world class talents to the world of sports. Hence in the aftermath of this background,
one can expect some surprise performance by African countries in this year’s FIFA
world cup. It was Cameroon which captivated world audience with scintillating performance
in the 1990 FIFA world cup and declared arrival of African countries in world stage
in true sense. Since then Africa has produced many world class footballers like Didier
Drogba, Samuel Eto and many more. Football has given immense source of happiness
to Africans and has facilitated the process of healing many old wounds.
When South Africa was awarded hosting right for FIFA world cup 2010 many pundits
across the world were skeptical about its ability to host event of such magnitude.
But braving all odds, the country is all set to host this mega event and the world
audience will get a chance to witness Africa’s hidden beauty. For one month, entire
Africa will immerse in joy of being part of this football extravaganza and perhaps
this may be beginning of new era for this continent. Our North-East region which
too has witnessed bloody history in major part of its existence since Independence
can learn lesson out of this FIFA world cup. Sports and music have no boundary and
can heal old wounds and give hope for future. Time to forgive each other and move
on with life!

contamination exists leading to villagers suffering from diseases like diarrhea and

alongwith the drainage system in the village under ‘operation samaritan’ and same
are being used by the villagers.
