PURCHASE OF CAR BY PBOR VETERANS
Govt. of India , Ministry of Defence, vide its letter No. 96410/Q/DDGCS dt. 23 Oct. 2008 issued by Integrated HQ of MOD (Army) Army HQs / QMG's Branch, Dy. Dte. Gen. Canteen Services, has authorized serving and retired PBORs to purchase four wheelers through the CSD with effect from 01 Jan 2009 up to 1300 CC capacity.
This facility has been accorded to PBORs as a result of great struggle by various ESM organizations including Indian Ex-Services League, Punjab & Chandigarh, headed by the undersigned. However, we are utterly disappointed by the eligibility conditions imposed by Ministry of Defence on the purchase of car through CSD by PBORs. Following conditions are to be fulfilled by the PBORs before they can purchase car:-
1. PBOR should have retired honorably with pension after a colour service of 15 years.
2. The retired PBORs shall submit an affidavit of Rs. 5/-on Non Judicial Stamp Paper covering the following:-
(a) He has not purchased the car in the last 5 years (for JCO) and 7 years (for other rank).
(b) The vehicle is for his personal use.
(c) Vehicle will be registered on his name.
Entry with regards to purchase of car by retd PBOR will be made on the original PPO at the Depot.
After that CSD will take the following action:-
(a) Verify the correctness of the details furnished by the PBOR.
(b) Cross check from CSD HO whether the Concerned PBOR has already purchased a car from any other CSD Depot in the last 5 / 7 years.
(c) Share the data with regards to purchase of car by PBOR with other depots.
PBOR will be allowed to purchase the car only after receipt of confirmation from CSD Head Office.
No such condition is applicable to officer and all officers including ECs and SSCs, not drawing pension, are allowed to purchase a car of any capacity after a gap of 2 years.
This organization has already taken of the case of these additional conditions applicable to PBORs with Integrated HQ of MOD (Army) Adjutant General's Branch and they have further asked QMG Branch for the reasons for the additional conditions applicable to PBORs vide their letter no. B/33152/AG/PS-2(c) dt. 5 June 2009 with a copy to this league HQ.
So far no reply has been received from QMG Branch. Same will be displayed on this blog as and when received.
