Upon registering, the system will automatically allocate the entitled foodgrains. The NFSA beneficiaries will be able to check their foodgrains entitlement, the last six-month transactions, and the status of Aadhaar seeding. The app will provide transparency given beneficiary would no longer have to ask the FPS dealer as to how much ration he/she would get but check their entitled subsidies directly on the app.

“The new mobile app aims to facilitate the ONORC-related services among beneficiaries of the NFSA, particularly migrant beneficiaries, fair price shop (FPS) or ration shop dealers and other stakeholders,” Sudhanshu Pandey, Secretary, Department of Food & Public Distribution said at the launch.
