PDS-Training

The erstwhile scheme component/ Project ‘PDS-Training’, which had a sunset date on 31.03.2022, was aimed to impart training to districts and sub-district level functionaries and other officials associated with PDS so that they become acquaint with latest happenings, inter-alia, data analysis, viability of FPSs, portability of ration cards, dash-boarding of data/reports, social audits, oversight and monitoring mechanism under NFSA, etc. in the PDS operations across different parts of the country.  The financial assistance was provided to the interested States/ UTs for conducting training programmes as per the guidelines.

In view of the emerging ICT tools and the challenges posed by Covid-19 pandemic, this Department in collaboration with World Food Programme has developed e-learning platform/training modules for imparting training to the PDS functionaries of States/UTs and this training would enhance their pool of knowledge in respect of contemporary developments in technology with respect to PDS. As of now, 06 training modules have been developed and for online administration of training at State level, State/UT Governments have been requested to share details of State Nodal Officer who would act as State Admin in the LMS and would be responsible for registration of District/Block level PDS functionaries and assignment of online courses for the registered functionaries.
