Abstract: In this project, the proposed concept is to replace the manual work in public distribution system. The ration distribution system is automated by using embedded system technology, which is similar to the ATM. This automated ration system replaces the conventional ration card system by smart card. In addition, the finger print smart card is placed in the machine in order to check the correct user access. If the user is correct user, the next process takes place. As soon as the input is given, the products are obtained from the automated ration shop and the amount is taken from account of the particular person. The embedded controller is pre-programmed in such a way to perform the similar operations. In this automated ration shop government have control over all transaction that occurs in ration shop. In order to involve government in the process, the proposed ration shop system is connected to the government database via GSM modules, which further sends the up-to-date information to the government and the consumer. For the efficient operation and economic constraints of the system, the power supply unit is fully made alternate to solar power.
