Tamil Nadu Ration PDS Stock Availability SMS Service

Sponsored Links


Tamil Nadu Government’s PDS-Public Distribution System have started a new SMS Service  for the public . With the help of this  SMS Service, people can get to know the availability of various commodities in ration shops(fair price shops) in various parts in Tamil Nadu without having to walk in to a ration shop to find out that. This SMS service was in Trial Mode for the past 3 months and is now open to public


The SMS should be sent to the following numbers: 97890 06492, 97890 05450, 91764 80226, 91764 80227, 90948 31766, 97907 25349 and 91764 80216.

For example, if a card-holder in North Chennai wants to know the stock in his ration shop, he should first write PDS and leave a space and write 01, the code of the district and leave a space and write BE014, the shop code as printed in the bottom of the ration card’s cover page. Thus, the SMS to be sent is this: PDS 01 BE014.

District code and shop code differs from place to place and the card-holder can know them from the number of the family card.

As the server connected for receiving the SMS would be overloaded after 5 pm, the cardholders are requested to send their SMS in the morning hours to get quick responses.

How to send SMS and what are the step by step instructions? Here is the tutorial and first –hand experience of this service.
