- India’s first smart card based PDS (Public Distribution System) solution
- Resonates with ‘Aadhar’ (UID project) issuing Smart cards
- Biometric, demographic and personal information details to be gathered
- Use of technology for systematic distribution of food rationing
HCL Infosystems India’s premier hardware, services and ICT system Integration company today announced that it bagged an order to implement India’s first smart card based solutions for Public Distribution System in the union territory of Chandigarh. The project will see distribution of smart card based ration cards to the families living below poverty line in the region.
These smart cards will capture all biometric, tax, demographic and personal information details, enabling authorities to ensure proper distribution of food rationing and other benefits. This first of its kind deployment resonates well with the Government’s national initiative ‘Aadhar’ (UID project) and reinforces the company’s expertise in the space. This selection comes after extensive scrutiny, solution demonstration and evaluation by various committees and also a nodal agency HARTRON (Haryana Electronics Development Cooperation) which found HCL Infosystems with its expertise best suited to deploy this unique solution.
Commenting on the project Mr. J.V. Ramamurthy, President & COO, HCL Infosystems Ltd said, “It gives me immense pleasure to see HCL Infosystems leading the way with India’s first deployment for a technology led PDS solution. Technology today is changing the way local authorities across the globe reach out to their citizens. As Public Distribution System is vital for sustained living of the people living below the poverty line, this project is a step in right direction to make the Public Distribution System more robust and effective by deploying path-breaking technology. The project will ensure that the benefits of the public distribution system will reach the grass root levels and we at HCL Infosystems are proud to be a part of such nation building project.”
