Fair Price Shops and Ration Shops distribute:
A public distribution shop, also known as fair price shop (FPS), is a part of India's public system established by the Government of India which distributes rations at a subsidized price to the poor. Fair price shop is the shops that distribute commodities like rice, wheat etc. as a part of the public distribution system. They're generally the stores o shops that sell daily commodities like wheat, rice, corn etc. The prices at which food materials are sold at these ration shops are lower than the market prices. The low pricing is to benefit the poorer strata of society. This is why these shops are called fair-price shops. Fair-price shops keep stock of food grains, sugar and kerosene oil. The cost of wheat is Rs 27/kg, which will be provided at a subsidised rate of Rs 2 kg, while the cost of rice is about Rs 32/kg but will be supplied at Rs 3/kg through ration shops. All states have been asked to take foodgrains from the Centre in advance for distribution through the PDS.
