Ration shop also called as the fair price shop is used for supplying goods like Rice, wheat, oil and other required items for human survival. These goods are supplied for fair price for the poor people and so the name. The people in the nearby area are not aware of the presence of the goods which are provided at a particular day due to improper communication and also some people who are in far places from the shop are unaware of the working time of shop. Because of this, they are standing in queues in case of more rush and some people come at times when the shop is closed. In order to avoid this, we have found a new solution. The people will get the details about the stocks which are supplied for a particular day and also the working time. These messages reach them through normal messages in mobile phones. These are done by sending the messages to the customer’s mobile phone by using Internet of Things (IoT) with the help of GSM Module. The Arduino UNO is used to connect the data’s to GSM and also collect the data’s and send it as message through IoT. These messages are sent to the higher officials in order to avoid any malfunctioning that may occur. By using this technique, they can minimize their precious time by standing in queues and the people will know about the product which is provided at a particular moment or a day.
