A Smart System and Application for ration card contain Biometric and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). To preventing the ration forgery as there are chances that the shopkeeper my sell the material to someone else and take the profit and put something false recodes in system. In smart ration system, RFID tag act as ration card and all details of ration holder and there family member is stored in RFID Tag. RFID reader is used for reading RFID tag and user verification. The microcontroller connected to the reader will checks for the user authentication. If the user is found authentic then the quantity of ration to be given to the customer according to the total number of family members will be displayed on display device. A smart system is free from thieves. Delivered ration details directly send through web application to the government of india without any manual feeding and also sending message to customer’s register mobile number and ration receipt.
