After getting encouraging results from Haryana and Puducherry, the government is likely to scrap public distribution scheme (PDS) system and transfer money directly to the accounts of poor beneficiaries, PM Modi said. Modi stated this during his Monday's informal discussion with BJP MPs from Delhi, J-K, Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Chandigarh. PM admired these states and said, “This model may be implemented in other states as well".
