OPERATIONS

3. It is a Department under the Ministry of Defence. A point to remember is that unlike other Government Departments who buy goods for their own consumption against entitlement, CSD purchases goods for sale to Unit-run- Canteens based on their demand. Hence only those products are introduced in CSD which are of high quality and have proven good saleability in civil market.

3

4. The CSD operates on all India basis. It has set up 5 RM offices and 34 Area Depots in different parts of the country, stretching from Leh in the high altitude(Ladakh region in the North) to Port Blair in the South and from Dimapur in the East to Bikaner in the West. These depots, some of them in remote places (far away from normal business operations), but in close proximity to the military units and formations, feed over 3825 Canteens run by local Military Administration to reach armed forces personnel, the ultimate customers in the chain.

The area depots, in turn, receive their supplies either directly from the suppliers or from a mother depot, known as Base Depot, located at Mumbai.

5. The entire distribution net work from suppliers to the unit-run canteens (URCs) is controlled and monitored by the HO at Mumbai. In this, the HO is assisted by five Regional Managers located at Khadki (Pune) for South, Lucknow for Central, Narangi(Guwahati) for East, Delhi Cantt. for West and BD Bari (Jammu) for North, each RM controlling six to eight area depots in his region.

7.With the distribution outlets reaching the length and breadth of the country, only CSD offers a supplier the most attractive and effective exposure to his products which he can not otherwise, hope to achieve elsewhere without any extra investments on publicity and distribution. It is CSD which ensures that payments are made in time to the suppliers.

8.The main objective of the department is to provide merchandise at uniformally reasonable prices, preferably cheaper than the market rates to the defence service personnel, earning at the same time a small margin of profit. A portion of earnings is used for meeting the operating expenses of the department and the remaining bulk is ploughed back to the three services for morale, welfare and recreational activities. The CSD thus seeks to improve

7

the quality of life for millions of its customers, spread over the length and breadth of the country.

9. To sum up, the CSD is a unique military-oriented government organisation. Though it is charged with making profit, it returns its earnings back to the customers. All in all, the CSD lives upto its motto "Service to the Services" in letter and spirit.

SECTION - 2

PURCHASE OPERATIONS

1. CSD purchases consumer durable and non-durable goods which are popular with the masses and have been selling well in the civil market. CSD purchases are to be differentiated with Govt.purchases. The purchases and practices followed in the CSD are not the same as Govt.purchases and they are more on commercial lines. The quantum of purchase depend on how the product sells in the CSD outlets and not on any other considerations. Secondly, CSD shall delist the items from its list as and when they are found to be unpopular with the clientele and not picking up adequate sales.

WHO CAN APPLY

2. Any established firm with proper credentials can make an application for registration as a supplier and the application will receive fair and impartial consideration. As a matter of policy CSD deals directly with manufacturers and not with intermediaries. In case of consumer items, the offered products should be popular and available in the civil market having high sales potential. The firm shall offer to CSD the products of latest improved technology so that defence customers are in a position to get the items from CSD immediately after they are launched in the market. In exceptional cases when the manufacturer does not undertake marketing by himself, All India sole marketing agent/ distributor appointed by the manufacturer for both civil and CSD REPEAT NOT for CSD or CSD and Paramilitary forces only, may be accepted as a supplier. In such cases, a letter of authorisation from the manufacturers to the marketing agent clearly spelling out that he is the sole authorised agent for sale of its product at All India level, is to be presented to the department on Rs. 100/- non-judicial stamp paper duly notarised alongwith the copy of the agreement.

3.The firms applying to CSD should be :

a)An Income Tax payee.

b)Registered under Factories Act (may be exempted at the discretion of the Competent Authority in respect of Cottage Industries/Ex- Servicemen Enterprises etc.).

9

c)If a Small Scale Industry, should have registered themselves as a Small Scale Industry.

d)Registered under State & Central Sales Tax and VAT, if applicable.

e)Should possess Registration Certificate and Constitution of the firm.

f)In the case of electrical and electronic gadgets, the product must conform to latest BIS Specifications. In other cases BIS/ISI Specifications would be an added advantage.

g)In the case of food and edible products, they should have `AGMARK'/`FPO' stamp. The products would be tested in Defence Food Laboratories and their verdict will be taken as final.

(Firms not qualifying the above requirements need not apply)

WHAT DO WE BUY

4. We buy and sell through unit-run-canteens durable consumer goods and daily necessities as found in the civilian departmental shops. Major categories of merchandise purchased by CSD fall in any one of the following :-

a)Toilet Requisites

b)Cosmetics

c)Kitchenware

d)Cookers and Accessories

e)Insulated ware

f)Crockery, Cutlery, Utensils, Glassware and Plastic ware

g)Electrical, electronic appliances

h)Time devices and watches

i)Sewing Machines and Accessories

j)Cycles, Motor Cycles, Scooters, Mopeds, Cars

k)Luggage items

l)Hosiery items

m)Sports goods

n)Matured Rum, IMFL, Beer, Wine & Champagne

10

o)Beverages, Patent Food, Medicinal (orally consumed) items, Edible and Hydrogenated Oils

p)Stationery items

q)White Goods- Refrigerators, TVs, AC, Washing Machine, Micro Ovens & Music System etc.

r)Miscellaneous household requisites

In case at any stage, the information provided in introduction form and connected papers is found to be false, the item will be deleted.

Any dispute arising out of business with CSD, the decision of GM CSD / Chairman BOA will be final and shall be binding on the supplier.

5. Firms interested in doing business with CSD are to fill in the `Form of Application for use by firms for seeking enlistment as ‘Approved Suppliers to CSD' and submit to CSD HO within 60 (Sixty) days of the date of issue of this booklet. All columns in this form are to be correctly filled, attaching additional sheet of paper to furnish full details where the space provided in a column is inadequate. Care should be exercised in filling up technical data, terms and rates columns as information given herein are to be explicitly clear and all relevant details are to be indicated for clear understanding and smooth future operations. The form is to be signed by the proprietor of the firm or by an authorised representative of the firm who holds the power of attorney to sign documents of financial nature, binding the company to contractual obligations.

PROCESSING OF APPLICATIONS FOR INTRODUCTION OF ITEMS IN CSD

6. The applications received from prospective suppliers are processed in CSD as per the laid down procedural guidelines. They pass through three main stages before the final seal of approval is accorded for supply through CSD. They are briefly discussed in succeeding paras for the general information of the suppliers.

11

7.The application on receipt is scrutinised for completeness and correctness and put up along with sample item before the Preliminary Screening Committee(PSC) of the Board of Administration (BOA) consisting of senior officers from the three Services and a senior officer representing department as decided by GM,CSD. Only those cases which are recommended by the PSC are processed further as detailed below. Not recommended cases are closed and concerned firms intimated accordingly. No representation are accepted in this regard.

8.Applications recommended by the PSC of the BOA are sent for an independent Market Survey at 7 different places all over India to ascertain the availability of the product in the Civil Market, it's popularity, sales potential, selling rates with and without sales tax. Factory inspection, CFL/AFL tests & Hygiene inspection are carried out.

9.After checking the saleability and rates of the product, the accredited

representative of the supplier who is in a position to take decision is called for price negotiation by the Price Negotiation Committee(PNC). The PNC negotiates the rates and terms with the authorised rep. of the firm for dealing with the Department. After finalising the rates and terms, the supplier is required to give his consent in writing.

10. The last and final stage is examination of the products offered for introduction by the Board of Administration (BOA). BOA scrutinises all relevant details of the products negotiated by PNC viz. Rate negotiated vis-a-vis rates & discount structure of functional equivalent items, procurement and retail parities, brand image of the product, quality, finish, durability, shelf life, usefulness to CSD clientele, status of the firm, its turn over etc. As per the revised guidelines on introduction of new items, the case file for introduction will be put up to the BOA only after completing all the necessary formalities like CFL testing, factory hygiene inspection, factory inspection and Price Negotiation Committee recommendations. BOA after careful analysis & study of the analysis chart and the sample of the product under consideration for introduction will take decision for acceptance or otherwise in the BOA meeting.

12

11.GM may call for test/quality reports of any product at any stage if he finds that there is a genuine reason to call for any specific report from any registered/authorised Govt. laboratory or test house.

12.No representations are accepted against cases not approved by the Board of Administration. If approved, GM decides on the quantity to be ordered initially and its distribution to area depots.

13.After the approval of initial order quantity, the case files are sent to concerned Store branches for issue of introduction letter to the firms.

14.Intimation regarding rejected cases is simultaneously sent to the concerned parties. They are also advised to collect their samples on receipt of communication within a stipulated period.

15.It should be clearly understood and agreed that the products having been offered and agreed to be introduced in the CSD, neither the manufacturers nor distributors/agents would deal directly with any of the Defence Services including Indian Naval Canteen Services (INCS) who are catered by this department. Any violation of this provision would entail cancellation of outstanding orders and delisting of the products from the CSD list.

16.The supplier is then required to submit a Bank Guarantee (BG) equal to 100% of the value of orders. The order thereafter is to be executed as per the delivery schedule given in it. In case of non-durable consumer item, the approved sample is kept with Management Service Branch of the Department before execution of the order for future reference with regard to quality/technical specifications.

17.The delivery against an order will have to be as per the agreed despatch terms as specified in the order by the HO. The delivery schedule of first order will be maximum 90 days. In case the order is not executed within the prescribed period, the item will be put up to BOA for deletion without notice. In the event of any stock against first order or subsequent orders remaining unsold, Department reserves the right to return the stock at the Department's wholesale rate at the expense of supplier and amount

adjusted either from pending bills or by invoking the Bank Guarantee whichever is available.

13

18.As per policy, the terms of despatches of stores may be FOR Base depot (against freight rebate) and may be FOR destination at the risk and cost of the supplier.

19.Strict quality check is maintained by the Department and products are periodically sent for testing. In case a product fails in quality check, further orders are withheld and penalty is levied. In case a product fails in repeat testing, the same is put up for deletion. However, before effecting deletion of items on quality grounds, comments within 30 days are sought from the supplier and if not received in time, payment to the extent as decided by the department will be withheld to settle the complaint.

20.

Supply of Against Firm Demand(AFD)

items like TVs, Refrigerators,

Air Conditioners, Cars, Mopeds, Music System,

Washing Machines for which

CSD does not keep in regular stocks like other items but orders for which are placed by CSD Depots only against demand from clientele, firms are to execute supply from their outlets co-located with CSD Area Depots/Unit Canteens except for Leh Depot. It is also incumbent on part of the firm to provide prompt after-sales-service to back up the sales of their AFD items for which purpose they must indicate names and addresses of such centres in an affidavit to cover all depot locations (Except Leh) to CSD, HO for approval.

21.The CSD would like to make it categorically clear that any supplier delivering/despatching stocks in excess of quantity ordered shall do so at his own risk and expenses and the department is not obliged to regularise the excess supply by any covering order at a later date. The excess supply so received will not be accepted if delivered personally or will be backloaded to the supplier on `freight to pay' basis at his risk and expense. The department will neither entertain any claim nor correspondence on this subject in any manner.

22.It is the responsibility of the supplier to obtain sales tax and octroi exemption certificates where applicable before actual despatch so that these concessions extended to the department are fully availed. Any future claim due to non-availing of these concessions will not be entertained by the department.

14

23. Discrepancy in quality and quantity in the consignments received at the depots would be reflected in the debit notes prepared by the consignee depots to the suppliers account. These debit notes would be forwarded to the HO (F&A) Branch for adjusting in the suppliers' account. In case where replacements have subsequently been provided, credit notes would be raised and adjusted in the suppliers' account on the same lines as debit notes. Willful act of omission/commission in quality shall lead to deletion of items from CSD list and blacklisting the supplier.

CHANGE OF PACK AND PRICE REVISION

24. Subsequent to introduction of the item, if the supplier at any time desires to either change the case pack of the item or seek increase in prices, he is to approach the CSD Head Office giving following particulars for the consideration and approval of the request.

a)Details of item with Index No.

b)Brand Name.

c)Change in weight/pack, if any.

d)Date of revision of prices in civil market.

e)Details of dealers/stockists in Mumbai and outside.

f)Reasons for price increase/decrease with full-justification. (Please attach photostat copy of proforma for determination of value under Central Excise and Salt Act 1944 as amended from time to time.)

g)Any other details.

h)Printed price list for wholesalers/distributors and dealers, duly authenticated.

25.The letter containing above details should be addressed to the concerned Stores Branch in the Head Office and till approval of the above is

received in writing from HO, neither the pack's specifications nor increased rates are to be put into effect. All outstanding orders with the supplier will be executed as per the existing terms and conditions and the supplier is not to wait for the approval of the changes proposed by him for executing old orders.

15

26.If any increase/decrease in the levies is announced by the Government, the suppliers are required to convey the same to CSD HO Mumbai, and seek written approval of CSD HO Mumbai for charging increased/decreased rates. No supply should be made without getting the approval of CSD HO Mumbai, charging the increased/decreased rate unless the supplier is continuing invoicing the products at the pre-revised/ decreased rates.

27.The request for change of pack would be considered by the department and normally a decision would be communicated to the supplier within four weeks of receipt of the letter. In so far as request for price increase is concerned, the department would carry out a market survey to ascertain the retail and wholesale rates, with or without taxes in the market, to establish the price differential between the market and CSD procurement rates as well as

across the counter retail rate in CSD. This is required to be maintained at

all

times.

28.

The request made by the supplier alongwith the market survey report

as indicated above with details

of

price

differntial worked out for easy

undestanding

would then be put

up

to a

Price Revision Committee(PRC).

The PRC will

examine the proposal

vis-à-vis the introduction proceedings.

The last price revision case and decide for acceptance or otherwise of the proposal and if being accepted totally or partially. Where the parity in price differential is maintained, the PRC may recommend it for approval by the competent authority and concerned branch will communicate the decision thereafter to the supplier and future orders would be placed for revised rates. In case the price differential is found to vary, either a counter offer would be made to the supplier, indicating the percentage of increase that can be permitted by the department or the firm's representative called for direct negotiations to arrive at a consensus. Thereafter with the approval of the competent authority, the increase in rates would be intimated to the supplier.

OBLIGATION ON THE PART OF THE SUPPLIER TO INTIMATE CSD ON STOPPAGE OF PRODUCTION OR ANTICIPATED EXCESSIVE DELAY IN EXECUTION OF ORDERS

29. As already brought out, it is absolutely essential that the orders are executed as per the delivery schedule indicated therein. However, if due to any unforeseen reasons, which are beyond the control of the suppliers, either they stop manufacture of the item or are unable to despatch the items to the

16

consignee depots within the delivery schedule they must inform the CSD Head Office immediately, indicating the period for which the supplies would not be available and seek extension of delivery time from the HO. Similarly, permanent withdrawal of the product from production must also be intimated to the department well in advance indicating the status of outstanding orders and commitment of the firm for meeting the outstanding orders.

30.Appointment of middleman/agent by you to lookafter interest of your product in CSD is not permitted and any violation will lead to deletion of product without notice.

31.The CSD personnel being Government servants are prohibited from accepting any gift/gratuity from any person or firm doing or seeking to do business with the CSD. The term gratuity includes entertainment, favour or anything of monetary value given to CSD employees or a member of their

family.

The offering or giving of

a gift

or

gratuity

by an individual

or

firm or

its employees or agents could

lead

to

serious

consequences,

to

include

termination of supply arrangement, debarment for

further supplies

or and

criminal

prosecution.

 

 

 

 

 

 

32.In case of introduction of IMFL/Matured Rum/Beer, it is obligatory on the part of supplier to submit the sales data of each item pertaining to offered pack size for last 2 years duly verified by the concerned state Excise Authorities.

33.15 percent of the following products are reserved for ex-servicemen enterprises provided these are competitive in all respects and at par with others:-

SECTION - 3

PAYMENT OF BILLS

1. This department will endeavour to make payment to the suppliers after 30 working days subject to availability of funds from the date of receipt of goods at the designated depots, and receipt of certified copies of the bills alongwith other connected documents. The payment of bills are made centrally by the HO Finance and Accounts Branch (F&A) by cheque on Mumbai branch encashable at the station of supplier's choice, wherever this facility exists. In case supplies under" AGAINST FIRM DEMAND (AFD-CATEGORY-I) the payments will be released by the respective depots to the dealers directly. Expenditure on account of despatch of cheque by courier will be borne by the firms.

BILLS SUBMISSION

2. After an order is executed and goods despatched to the consignee depots, bills will be prepared in the firm's bill form as per the prescribed format and submitted to the department in sextuplicate as per distribution given below :-

a)3 copies in original(white), duplicate(blue) and triplicate(pink) would be despatched to the concerned depot where the consignment has been despatched.

b)One advance copy quintuplicate(yellow) will be forwarded to F&A Branch in HO in an envelope marked attention DGM(F&A).

c)Quadruplicate copy(green) will be despatched to DGM(F&A) only if the suppliers opted for early payment on cash discount basis.

d)The sixth copy will be despatched to DGM(GS)/(LIF) as applicable for linking with the order copy held by them.

3.

In case of local supplies to Base

Depot and Area Depot

at Mumbai,

it is advisable that the advance copy is delivered by

hand to

avoid postal

delays.

When the goods are transported

by road, it is

advisable to despatch

19

the two copies of the bills meant for the consignee depot through the transporters for early processing and clearance at HO. It must be ensured that there is no variation between the copies sent to depots and to HO.

4. The billing should be in conformity with rates and terms agreed by this department. Deviation entails delay in the clearance of bills and should be avoided. Care should be taken in quoting the correct order references, case pack, Index Nos. and nomenclature on the bills for easy linking and payment.

DELAYED/EXCESS SUPPLY

5. Wherever supply made is in excess to the ordered quantity or after the Delivery date, the matter should be immediately taken up with the Stores Branch at the Head Office or the concerned depot (in case of LS Orders) to review the cases and regularise the excess supply. Payment in such cases would be released only after the confirmatory orders are issued. However, it is once again stressed that firms are not to supply in excess to the ordered quantities, otherwise they will be put to lot of inconvenience. The firms are also advised to execute orders within the delivery schedule failing which penalty at the rates decided by the department from time to time will be imposed. If the delivery is delayed by more than 60 days, the same will not be accepted.

DIRECT DESPATCHES

6. In case the order specifies direct despatch of items to different area depots, the firm should keep close liaison with the local area depot and arrange direct despatch of goods to the depots as per delivery schedule indicated in the order. Bills covering such direct despatches alongwith Lorry Receipt(LR)/Goods Receipt(GR)/Railway Receipt(RR) are to be invariably handed over to the local area depot concerned. Instructions for the submission of bill, given in para 2 & 4 above, should be strictly followed. The local area depot will certify and forward it to HO for payment process. It has been noticed that some of the suppliers do not submit their bills to local depots in time which results in delayed submission of the documents by the depot to HO. It is advised that the required documents be handed over to the local depot personally for despatch to HO.

20

BILL FORWARDING ADVICE (BFA)

7. Depot Manager's are authorised to make payment against Firm demand items (AFD CATEGORY - I) from their Depot Imprest account. Documents of Bill/BFA/F2 and LS Orders are to be enclosed while forwarding their weekly imprest statement to HO.

Items other than AFD CATEGORY - I, the payment is being made centrally by HO F&A Branch to the respective suppliers. The Depot Managers are instructed to certify the bills within 48 hours from the receipt of consignment and the documents like Bills/BFA/F2 and LS Orders are to be forwarded to HO F&A Branch by speed post. Depot Managers are also instructed to mention on LS Order clearly the rate of local tax and surcharge against each items and also whether tax is being paid to tax authorities by 1st point or 2nd point, enable HO to verify the correctness of tax charged by the supplier on their bills.

SALES TAX EXEMPTION

8. This department is fully or partially exempted from the payment of sales tax and other dues in some of the States. The stores purchased by this department are sold to troops at our procurement rates plus tax charged by the supplier and our nominal profit margins. Supplier should therefore, ensure that all taxes not exempted to CSD and wherever applicable are charged while negotiating the rates with the department. Arrears of tax not charged due to any reason will not be paid by the department since they cannot be recovered from the troops at a later date for the sales made to them in the past. Exemption certificates for sales tax wherever applicable are issued by the CSD depot to which the supplies are effected. Request for such forms should be made direct to the concerned depots and (repeat) not to the F&A branch at HO.

OCTROI

9. Purchases made by the department are exempted from Octroi charges in certain States. The suppliers are to obtain exemption certificates from the concerned depots before despatching the goods. If due to non-submission of

21

requisite certificate, octroi is levied, the department will not reimburse these charges.

DEBIT NOTES

10. For items received short or in damaged condition, debit notes will be raised on the supplier by the respective depots. On replacement / rectification, the concerned depots would subsequently raise credit notes for adjusting the recovery made on the debit notes raised earlier and the payment will be regulated accordingly. As per the departmental policy, the depots have been instructed to raise debit notes on wholesale rates prevalent as on date of warehousing of such stores. While we assure you that due care is exercised while debit notes are raised, it is requested that no correspondence be initiated in case the discrepancy is below Rs.100/-.

CASH DISCOUNTING OF BILLS

11.Discretion to discounting of bills rests entirely with this department. Due to stringent liquidity constraints and workload involved, this facility is extended only selectively. Any supplier wishing to avail of this facility is to apply in writing to the General Manager, CSD and cash discounting facility would start only after the request is considered and approved by the General Manager. The percentage of discount will be 3% of the Bills Amount.

12.Copy of the Bill/Challan transfer invoice duly signed by Depot Manager as token of having received goods at CSD Depot should be submitted to HO.

a)In case of local supplies, the bills/challans should also be counter- signed by the Depot Manager of the concerned depot for having received the consignment. The bill should be signed by the Manager with his rubber stamp. Signature by Storekeeper alone are not acceptable.

b)Certificate as given below should invariably accompany the bills.

BASE DEPOT

4.The visits to Base Depot at Sewri will be on the lines of HO. The

suppliers' representatives escorting stores for delivery to Base Depot against a valid order placed by HO will only be permitted to visit the godowns. All the other visitors will meet DGM(Base) and conduct their business only with him.

AREA DEPOTS

5. The visits to area depots will again be as per the guidelines given for Base Depot. All meetings/transactions would be conducted at the level of the Manager and suppliers' representatives are permitted to visit godowns only when delivering stores against orders.

  

26

SECTION - 5

QUALITY CONTROL

1. Our aim is to provide quality merchandise in the CSD distribution system. While each supplier is to ensure that products supplied to CSD are made to high quality standards, the department has a quality control cell of its own to ensure continued high quality of products in the CSD inventory.

LIQUOR/FOOD PRODUCTS

2.While some of the food products have `AGMARK' quality of assurance, most others do not have any such quality specifications of assurance. The food products are therefore subjected to testing by Composite Food Laboratories(CFL), a military food testing organistion under the Ministry of Defence, and are introduced in CSD only if the verdict is favourable. Subsequently samples are drawn periodically at random from the consignments received from suppliers either at the Base Depot or at the area depots and sent to CFL for testing and verdict. The cost of the samples and testing are to be borne by the supplier and debit note is raised for the amount as and when such testing is done.

3.The verdict of the CFL is final and binding on the supplier. Where the verdict is unfavourable or the item declared unfit for CSD vending, the department reserves the right to impose a penalty on the total quantity supplied

against particular batch No, at the rates decided as per the prevailing policy of the deptt. and backload the entire/left out stocks of the batch under adverse verdict and recover the cost thereof at the wholesale rate (not procurement rate) from the supplier and the later is bound to reimburse the value thereof immediately to the department. It is the responsibility of the supplier to mark on all individual container and the packages containing the case pack of the item, the dates of manufacture and life expiry and special storage conditions, if any, for the information of CSD personnel and ultimate users of these products. Non-marking of containers/packages as above constitute a serious violation of the quality control requirement and the department reserves the

27

right to take action as appropriate including backloading of the entire consignment and recovering cost thereof at wholesale rates and impose penalty as decided by GM, CSD. The department also reserves the right to get the suppliers production installation hygienically inspected by qualified officers of the Ministry of Defence and until and unless the installation is brought upto the standards set by them and declared fit, to suspend supplies to the CSD.

LIQUOR

4.Indian made foreign liquor (IMFL) including rum and beer are tested to BIS/ISI Specifications at CFLs and if found meeting the specification are only then introduced in the CSD. Hygienic inspection by qualified medical officers and their certification of fitness for the distillery is a precondition for introduction of the brand of IMFL/Rum/Beer in the CSD. The distillery should also offer themselves for a hygienic inspection at any time thereafter as and when CSD perceives the need for a repeat inspection. Items cleared by AFL and satisfactory Hygienic inspection does not guarantee the introduction of items.

5.Periodical testing of samples drawn at random from the supplies made to CSD would be carried out at CFLs and all the follow up measures as spelt out for food items in para 2 & 3 would equally apply to liquor items also.

SAMPLE TESTING

6. It is the responsibility of the supplier to ensure that all goods supplied by him are manufactured to original specifications given in the introduction form and are identical in all respects to the sealed samples handed over to the department. He must also ensure that items are packed, marked and delivered to Base/Area depots as per specifications spelt out in the introduction form and approved by the department. No deviation is permitted without approval from HO. In order to ensure that the quality of the product being introduced is good the product should be laboratory tested and specification be submitted at the time of application itself.

28

7.In case of introduction of perfumes the supplier must apply for products containing only Isopropyl alcohol.

8.The supplies will be checked by drawing samples at random and comparing with the sealed samples already held in the department. As and when necessary the samples would be sent to reputed Govt./Civil testing agencies for checking on characteristics like colour fastness, shrinkage, strength, electrical performance, safety factors etc. Where such tests are conducted at outside agencies, the cost of the sample and testing charges would be borne by the supplier. Cases of adverse verdict, after the testing as above, would be dealt with and penalty imposed wherever applicable, as per the policy of the deptt., in vogue.

AFTER SALES SERVICES AGAINST WARRANTY

9. Moulded luggage, electricals and electronic appliances, televisions, Washing Machines, kitchen gadgets and similar range of items carry warranty cards assuring the customers trouble free performance of the item for a specified period of time and guaranteeing that any defects/damages during the period of warranty would be rectified/repaired/replaced free of cost. It is the responsibility of the supplier in these cases to ensure that the CSD customers serving at far flung areas are able to avail of the warranty provisions speedily. Local dealers in all cities, who would attend to the complaints of the CSD customers are to be submitted to HO for circulation to all depots/URCs. In places, where such facilities are not made available, the area depots would be permitted to replace the item and backload the defective piece to the supplier on "Freight To Pay" basis in case of major defects/damages or allow the item to be repaired and debit the cost to the supplier, if the damage is of minor nature.

10. For the items covered under warranty period, customers will produce warranty card/cash memo at the time of seeking service from the dealers to authenticate the date of purchase from URC/Depot (in case of AFD items). In case local dealer does not co-operate/render service within 30 days period, URC will report to the Depot for necessary assistance. In order to help the Unit, Depot Manager will take up the matter with the nominated dealer for

29

arranging After Sales Service. Even inspite of Manager's intervention, if the dealer does not respond within the 30 days, necessary replacement of ex- stock will be arranged debiting all costs to the firm.

11. In the HO, the Management Services (MS) branch handle all Complaints received from the depots/URCs/individual customers. The department is sensitive to complaints, particularly non-availability of supplier's outlets at different points for attending to warranty complaints and repeated quality complaints will lead to deletion of items from the CSD range. It should therefore, be the endeavour of all CSD suppliers to attend promptly to complaints received from individual CSD customers/URC/Area depot/Base depot/HO and ensure satisfactory service rendered and confirmed to all concerned.

12. Before introduction of any consumer durable item, supplier must undertake to provide After Sales Service Centres for all CSD Depots locations (Except Leh ) in an affidavit containing details of such After Sale Service Centres.

  

30

SECTION - 6

MISCELLANEOUS

ORDERING SYSTEM

1. The department operates on computer based periodic ordering system. Orders for each product are based on the demand of the product at each of our depots. This, besides bringing in greater accuracy in our stocking patterns, ensure the right type of item as per the choice of the customers being made available at area depots for sale to URCs. In other words, further order for a product would depend upon its sale across the country at URCs and further demands by the customers. This considerably reduces the human subjectivity in the ordering system. The suppliers are, therefore, advised to depend on the inherent strength of their product and its capacity to generate further demands from customers, rather than resort to any unfair practices.

CONSUMER EMPOWERMENT

2. Due to remote location, often our ultimate customers (the troops) donot become aware about the product range in the CSD. While products of big firms and multinationals are widely publicised and covered through TV media, same is not the case with products of many other firms. To make the customers aware of the products, if considered appropriate, the suppliers may give publicity to their products in the following publications of CSD which are circulated to all Unit-run-Canteens and are seen by our customers :

a)Price Catalogue : The price catalogue is circulated twice a year listing out the wholesale and retail price of all products traded by CSD. The prices listed are for the information of URCs and their customers alike. This is extensively used on a day-to-day basis in all the canteens.

b)Quarterly Newsletter : The Newsletter is issued every quarter to all URCs, giving all important information relating to supply of product, temporarily suspension of supplies, new introduction made

31

and such other information that would be required by all the canteens and their customers.

c) Monthly Bulletin is also published by MS branch containing details of items introduced, deleted, change in case pack, gift schemes offered by various firms & period of its validity and such other information which will help URCs to update their price list and other records while indenting stores with CSD.

OTHER PUBLICATIONS

3.Department publishes Inhouse Magazine called `SAMPARK' on half yearly basis. This journal is circulated to all CSD installations and provide good scope for publicity.

4.The advertisement tariffs could be obtained by the suppliers from F&A Branch in HO for Price Catalogue, MS branch for Quarterly News Letter and Monthly Bulletin and DGM(P&A) for `SAMPARK'.

5.Any gifts/complementaries the suppliers wish to offer to the department as a sales promotion effort, must be first informed to the MS Branch including the dealing branch in HO and supplies may be regulated as per the guidelines of the HO. It may be noted that as and when gift/complimentry schemes are made to run in civil market, the same must also be passed on to CSD customers by the supplier, failing which it will attract penalty. The department sincerely solicits the co-operation of the suppliers in this regard for ensuring

equitable distribution of such complimentary items to all CSD clientele.

6. Lastly, the department would like to extend a warm invitation to the prospective suppliers to join hands with CSD to promote healthy and prosperous trade links of a long lasting nature wherein both the department and the supplier could be proud of and achieve results, towards betterment of their own cherished goals. Once again wishing you good luck and God speed.
