Solution :-

Ration shops also, known as Fair Price Shops, keep stock of foodgrains, sugar, and kerosene for cooking. These items are sold to people at a price lower than the market price.

However, there are problems of functioning of the ration shops:

1. The quality of food provided to poor people is less than the expected quality of foodgrains.

2. The ration shop deals indulge in malpractices and do not provide the poor people with the entire quantity they deserve.

3. Some ration shops are not opened regularly and this causes discomfort to the poor.

4. The ration shopkeepers even update wrong entries in the name of the poor people.
