Facing criticism over “delay” and to “remove any likely malpractices”, the Quarter Master General’s Branch, Canteen Services, has issued fresh instructions for defence personnel seeking to buy new cars.


The new procedure will be implemented by November 15. It has been introduced as Quarter Master General’s branch pointed out that “feedback from environment, has indicated that there is a considerable delay from the time a Sanction Letter for car is dispatched by this Dte ( directorate) to the time it is received by the applicants”. It was added that new procedure would “mitigate the problems being faced specially by Veterans” and to “remove any likely malpractices and to enhance satisfaction level of car applicants”.

New Procedure
All applicants will fill application forms in duplicate and obtain countersignatures on both copies.

One copy of the form duly completed will be forwarded to the Canteen Services Directorate, whereas the duplicate copy will be required to be produced to Canteen Services Depot (CSD) at the time of final preparation of documents for delivery of the car.
