There were no hiccups in ration distribution now.However, arrangements had been made for seven districts in the morning and seven in the afternoon to fully resolve some server issues. It was only for five days, Mr. Anil said.

The government was trying to make available quality products to people, the Minister said adding that Supplyco would soon upgrade its showrooms.The online facility would be available through out the State by March.

A joint inspection of FCI officials and civil supplies officials would be carried out to ensure the quality of the goods, Mr. Anil said.
