This paper proposes the improvised technique of implementing smart ration card. The main objectives of smart ration card are providing food grains and other essential items to vulnerable sections of the society at reasonable (subsidized) prices and to eradicate inefficiency in the targeting of beneficiaries and the resulting leakage of subsidies which is the main disadvantage of the present PDS (Public Distribution System). These objectives can be achieved by creating a unique database of residents in India and will put together the best technologies and processes for this purpose. This will lead to a database without duplicate entries and ghost cards which will help to avoid illegal and bogus claims and fraud in distribution of ration.
