Radio Frequency Identification for Public Distribution System in Smart Rationing

S. Yang, A. Andreo


The traditional public distribution system, intended to provide subsidized food to poor households, is the largest welfare programme in India. Several studies have found the system to be corrupted, involve food leakage, inefficient and costly in assisting the poor. To overcome from this problem Radio frequency identification (RFID) is introduced. RFID is a rapidly growing technology that has the potential to make great economic impacts on many industries. This work aims to review some of the current developments in this field and to develop a taxonomic framework to classify literature which will facilitate quick content analysis and identify future direction of research. RFID is used to automatic data capture allowing contact less identification of objects using radio frequency. This system provides the materials automatically without the help of humans.
