Amar Dukan


Amar Dukan is an Assamese term meaning 'Our Shop' to denote a notified Fair Price Shop in Assam which, besides providing the regular subsidized items under the Public Distribution System in India to the ration card holders, also sells some other essential commodities at reasonable rates fixed by the state Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Department to the general consumers under an initiative of the state government to strengthen the Public Distribution System (PDS). These specially converted Fair Price Shops had started to function in many districts of the state since early 2011.

This initiative on the part of the state government is also an attempt to tame spiraling prices of essential commodities and make them available to the common people at "significantly less" price compared to that in the open market. Items such as onions, potatoes, mustard oil, refined oil, soya oil, dal, atta, suji, maida, soap, milk, toothpaste, toothbrush hair oil etc. are some of the nearabout twenty one notified items which are kept by the Fair Price Shop-keeper in the Amar Dukan.

Neither all the FPS in Assam are notified for functioning as Amar Dukan nor every Amar Dukan sells all the notified items.
