MoD GOI must come out clean on the issue. There are URCs selling CSD goods and there are URCs selling non-CSD goods. URCs are being run by regular Military Units and by the non-Regular Military Units. Each one of the URCs selling CSD goods as well as liquors are the ones being run by Regular Military Units and those URCs which are registered by the General Manager CSD Adelphi Mumbai to sell CSD goods ( Grocery only)are the Non-Regular Military Establishments namely CDA , CSD, DRDO, DGQA.Each one of them is occupying defence accomodation or accommodations on A1 def lands privately funded. Saint Antoni must come clean and take stern view of the Loot & Scoot going on and on in the name of welfare to the troops.

Can the subsidy on CSD goods be given to the soldiers and veterans on Aadhar Cards. If done it may save a huge portion of tax payers money. A point worth pondering...
