The Decision to stop the sale to all ranks upto 31 Aug 11 was taken by QMG Branch due to inadequate budget allocation to CSD for FY 2011-12. The situation is yet to improve and allocated budget is only sufficient to cater for purchase of Grocery and Liquor. CSD has taken up a case with MoD for allocation of additional funds and outcome is awaited. Thus, status quo on this subject will be maintained. Special sanction will be given by QMG on case to case basis.
