These days, the residents of the district are facing a lot of problems due to non-availability of a thumb, sometimes due to the absence of a server. Ration shops are being distributed through e-posh machines under the Food Security Act at ration shops, but ration consumers and cottagers are facing a lot of trouble due to the machines not working properly and servers not coming up. Due to non-availability of servers in POS machines, consumers across the district have not been able to get ration till date. Due to which consumers are traveling around fair price shops. If the officers of the Food Department are to be believed, then they say that due to non-availability of material in the POS machine in many districts of Pradesha as well as in Ashoknagar district, the ration has not yet been received from the consumer stores. Due to which they are facing trouble and people are going round the concerned departments and collectorate to find out the reason for this. Under the public system, ration is distributed to the consumers who fall under the poverty line category every month. To get the ration, the thumb of any member of the family should come successfully on the POS machine placed on the consumer stores only then the ration is given to the concerned family.

Can. But even after the 11th of the month has passed, consumers have not received ration till date. Due to which consumers are going round the shops. At the same time, the District Supply Office is being told that there is no server on the machines. District Supply Officer AK Pathak told that this problem is in many districts of the state, this is in the cognizance at the government level but food supply officials believe that we cannot do anything in it till the government directs us. Because even after the arrival of the new machine, the government has talked about distributing ration with the thumb. However, there are 237 ration shops in the district, out of which 208 new machines were sent from the government level to the district due to failure of most machines or server problems. Which have been delivered to all the consumer stores in the district.
Even after this, the problem of servers on new machines remains. Due to which the poor are not getting ration, they are making rounds of ration shops and sit in front of shops and wait and return to their homes empty handed. List of ration is not available in shops Ration shops have not been informed about the time by which they will be distributed ration. Due to which consumers do not get the right information. The consumer also contacts many shops, they are not given the right information or they also have to face wrong behavior. Due to this, consumers have started reaching the respective offices complaining about not getting ration. At the same time, the exact time of opening of the shop is also not mentioned. Due to which the consumers are not able to know when the shop will open and how long the rural shops will be open, then these shops do not give the right information at the same time and due to irregularities, the ration is not given at the time. These shops do not know exactly when to open and when to close.
Shops in the city open on the 1st or the 6th and close on the 21st. After the Diwali festival, people have not been able to get ration on this festival till Dev Uthani Gyaras. The festival is celebrated without rationing. There are many poor people who run the arrangements of their home on the basis of meeting ration control shops. But due to non-receipt of ration on time, the festival was celebrated without rationing, whereas every year, people used to get the distribution of ration before the goddess rose. Saying this the problem of ration distribution is coming. This problem is also present in other districts. People in Mandsaur, Narsingpur and other districts are not getting ration due to lack of servers in the machines. Ration is not available in Ashoknagar district as well as Mungavali, Chanderi due to no server. It is all under the cognizance of governance. Appropriate action will be taken only after getting instructions from the government.
