Dear Sir now how much time to wait clarification regarding admissibility of CSD facilities to family pensioners to MOD…………….kindly reply the comment i am waiting for your comment …………………

  • It's true that both the Service Personal & Civilian Personal used to serve the Government with shoulder to shoulder with the conception for 24 hrs. And it's experienced that most of the services requires the attention more than scheduled hrs and both the personal are equally effected on the issues.
    But in the last episode of service Civilian services have been denied the benefit of CSD Canteen. This is not logically fair. However the disparity must be rectified considering the facts as narrated above.

    Sub: Grant of CSD Canteen facilities to the retired Defence Civilian Employees.
    To The Secretary to Government of India
    Ministry of Defence
    South Block
    New Delhi-110 001
    Sir,
    While the Service Personnel and Civilian Personnel are entitled for CSD Canteen benefits while in Service, after retirement the benefit is being extend to Service Personnel and the same is denied to the Civilian Employees. This is a clear discrimination. In the past whenever AIDTOA raised this demand it was always told that if such facility is extended to Civilians then there would be demand from the Para Military Forces also. At present, the Ministry of Home have already extended the Canteen facility to its Para Military Forces at par with Ex-Servicemen. Moreover, the Ministry of Defence have extended the CSD Canteen facility for Civilian Employees who are retiring from the CSD. Therefore, there is no justification in denying the benefit to the Defence Civilian Employees.
    It is also a fact that more than 60% of the Defence Civilian Employees settle down in their home town which is far away from the places where the CSD/ Unit Run Canteens are functioning. Therefore, at their old age they will not be travelling long distances for purchasing items from the Canteen. Therefore, the contention of the CSD Managing Board that they cannot extend the facility due to shortage of infrastructure and manpower is not justified.
    It is a known fact that the Railway Employees who are eligible for free pass for travelling all over the country in Train are extended the benefit after retirement also. When Railway Ministry has recognised the services of the Railway Employees even after retirement there is no justification in Defence Ministry denying such recognition to its retired Civilian Employees.
    In view of the above, as already decided in the special meeting held under the Chairmanship of JS(E) on 12/11/2014 the CSD Managing Board may approve the recommendation of the MoD in this regard for extending the CSD Canteen facility to the retired Defence Civilian Employees.
    Thanking you

    Yours faithfully,General Secretary

  • AIDTOA & CCGGOO thank all the Defence Civilian Officers, employees& Pensioners, Federations & Associations for their support in the struggle for achieving CSD Canteen Facilities to Retired Defence Civilian Employees.

    Income becomes less than half since hra,cca,conveyance allowance are not in the pension. after that advantage of csd is withdrawn by some self centered army officer.csd facility must be given even to the widow of retired cent govt. employees.

    CSD facility is much needed only after the retirement. Govt may consider this genuine demand sympathetically keeping in view the average requirement of goods only for two people.
