Chandigarh, June 23

The Canteen Stores Department (CSD) has signed a contract with fabric maker Raymonds for the supply and sale of cloth for uniform for all three services through CSD outlets across the country.

This was stated by Air Vice Marshal M Baladitya, CSD general manager and chairman, during his visit to Chandigarh. He also interacted with ex-servicemen about issues concerning the functioning of canteens.

The move to supply fabric for different types of uniform comes in the wake of the Seventh Pay Commission recommending Rs 10,000 per annum to jawans for purchase of personal clothing items of uniform. One pair of shirt and trousers is expected to cost Rs 600. CSD has also tied with Godrej to sell furniture and household items to entitled beneficiaries through its outlets.
