FCI Depot Online System powered by VIT DepoSoft™
FCI Depot Online System, powered by VIT DepoSoft™, is a solution for managing the end to end operations of all the Depots/Warehouses of Food Corporation of India that are spread across India. The solution would facilitate process automation, standardization and efficiency of the management of food grain distribution and would enable real time monitoring of operations and timely data reporting.
"The Depot Online System has been completed. It is an historic step. The automation of the entire process from entry and exit of food grains at FCI depots would bring total transparency in the working of FCI. This will improve efficiency in operations of depots," Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said at the launch of the system at an FCI depot in New Delhi on March 17th 2016.

End-to-end supply chain visibility through integration with procurement agencies and logistics partners
