Government of India provides various facilities to the people those are under poverty line but such facilities do not reach to the poor and needy people due to the corruption present in the distribution chain. One of such facility provided by the government is ration material distribution system (RDS). In RDS, people can buy ration material (sugar, rice, oil, kerosene, etc.) from the ration shop with the special cost ones in the month. If it is not purchased by the card holder then there is a possibility of misuse of material by shopkeeper, like he can sell it illegally in market with high cost and gains more profit. So, to overcome this problem, one can have a transparent central monitoring system which will be linked with the government offices, ration distributors and the ration card holders. For this GSM technology will be helpful for wireless data transmission, Biometric Machine for authentication of consumer, RFID card for identification & transaction and advance processor to process the system such as Arduino UNO. In this paper different types of system implemented for similar application was describe with their advantages disadvantages and applications. Inline to this a new approach to automatic ration distribution is given to overcome all the basic drawbacks of existing system.
