Aug 28, 2013 16:09 IST

The Assam government on 27 August 2013 decided to set up Assam State Civil Supply Corporation for better management of public distribution system. Apart from making the public distribution system hassle free, the proposed corporation will monitor the implementation of Food Security programme. The concept was designed by IIM-Shillong and it is expected to cater to the PDS needs for Assam for the next four to five decades.
The new corporation will include elements of women empowerment, profit surpluses for the community, self governance and long term bonding, competitive managerial capabilities and modern technologies.

Assam State Civil Supply Corporation is designed to be an efficient management method that will remove leakages and inefficiencies of the legacy system. It will be set up on a private-public-partnership model. The new system will have a two-tier structure consisting of an initiating corporate body and an executing company.
