Corrections & Updates to TNPDS Smart Card

by Rahul Bhist Executive

The Tamil Nadu Public Distribution System have introduced the new and a modified version of the ration cards and they are called the smart ration cards. They are called smart because they are imbibed with a microchip which contains all the data of the card user. The introduction of smart ration cards is another initiative on the part of the Tamil Nadu government towards a more digital India and take the normal ration cards to the next level.

After applying for a smart ration card an SMS will be sent to the registered mobile number of the card user. The user then has gone to his or her nearest PDS center and collect the card by showing the SMS. The card can also be printed from the official website of the Tamil Nadu Public Distribution System.

There can be a number of reasons when a person might want to update or change the details in the PDS database like for example change in local address, change in our name after marriage etc. In any case, the individual can change the information available in the database by simply visiting the official website of TN PDS
