Ministry of Defence

Unit Run Canteens

There are at present 3730 Unit Run Canteens in the country. There is no centralized system to compile the annual turnover of URCs.

Local taxes are paid by Canteen Stores Department’s Depots as per the policy of respective State Governments in vogue from time to time and the same is charged from URCs along with the cost of items. The Comptroller & Auditor General of India in its 14 Report (2010-11) on Performance Audit of Canteen Stores Department has recommended that the URCs should be recognized as the retail outlets integral to CSD and steps be taken to bring the URCs under the accountability regime that is applicable to all operations funded by the Consolidated Fund of India. C&AG in its report has also mentioned that Audit was denied access to records of URCs. The Public Accounts Committee to Parliament (PAC) (15thLok Sabha) selected the subject report of C&AG for examination during the year 2010-11. The PAC presented its 48th Report on Canteen Stores Department to Parliament on 28.12.2011. The Report is under consideration in the Ministry for preparing Action Taken Notes

This information was given by Minister of Defence Shri AK Antony in a written reply to Shri Jose K Mani and others in Lok Sabha today.
