A significant undertaking in Operation Research (OR) is to locate the Basic Feasible Solution (BFS) of  Transportation Problem (TP). In this, the distribution   indicators (DI) have been resolved from the distinction of the biggest unit cost and average value of total unit cost of each row and column .The area of the fundamental cells have been resolved as the biggest entrance of the transportation Table (TT) along the biggest DI. The modified technique is delineated with a model alongside the optimality test to legitimize its proficiency. It is seen that the strategy introduced in this is material similarly on the reasonable and lopsided TP with equivalent imperatives.
