The extant system of procurement of CSD is transparent, however, bringing more transparency and efficiency in the system is a continuous process. CSD has been advised to use information technology for hosting status of sale, stock and order details of all suppliers on CSD website. They have also been advised to adopt e-governance expeditiously.
