The present ration distribution framework works manually and has downsides like sometimes not reaching service to needy people, more time-consuming process, lack of awareness about quantity and amount, availability of goods, material theft in ration shops, lack of fairness in distribution. So, to overcome such malpractices we bring a solution that implements an embedded system which works automatically without human interference in distribution and keeps all records automatically in a transparent manner. We can call it a smart and automatic ration distribution system which is more reliable and automated. This system uses RFID (Radio-frequency Identification) and GSM (Global system for mobile) to make the system automatic and smart. We are creating a web portal using IOT so that the government's updated information will be reached directly to the user. We are using an RFID card reader instead of a ration card which contains all the information present in the ration card. After the transaction, the user will get a message of a transaction on his authorized mobile number. For authentication, we are checking fingerprints using a fingerprint sensor.
