From June 1, only vehicles with engine capacity up to 2,500 CC and costing up to Rs 12 lakh will be available through Canteen Stores Department, officials said.

Indian Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba has purchased and taken delivery a brand new Jeep Compass from Canteen Stores Department (CSD), according to multiple media reports. Although the exact variant purchased by the Navy Chief has not been confirmed, the base variant of the Jeep Compass is priced just above Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom) (approx) in Delhi. Prices for the Compass SUV go well above 20 lakh for the more expensive variants.

From June 1, only vehicles with engine capacity up to 2,500 CC and costing up to Rs 12 lakh will be available through Canteen Stores Department, officials said. The duration of the purchase of vehicles has also been increased from four to eight years according to a letter issued by Quarter General Branch of the Army, they said.

Officials said those in the pay level of 3A and 9 can purchase vehicles with a capacity up to 1,400 CC that comes in the range of Rs 5 lakh. The decision will lead to the exclusion of most of the SUVs that cost more than Rs 12 lakh or with an engine capacity of more than 2,500 CC.

Defence personnel can buy vehicles from military canteens comparatively at a cheaper price than what is available in the market as they get GST exemption. Several retired personnel also avail this facility.
