Abstract: The Government of India provides the Ration Cards as an official document authorizing the holder to a ration of food, fuel, or other goods. An Indian Citizen holding the Ration Card primarily uses it for purchasing subsidized ration like wheat, rice, sugar and kerosene. They are an important subsistence tool for the poor, providing documented proof of identity and a connection with the Indian government databases. All the people must have valid ration card to buy any material from the ration shops. This material has to be taken from the shopkeeper once in a month. In this paper we are trying to explore some monitoring systems which are to be linked with government offices, shopkeeper and the ration card holder.
