AFD Items
AFD items have been divided into two categories.

Category - I.
These items are not stocked by the Depots but are arranged by CSD and collected by consumers directly from dealers e.g. Refrigerators, TVs, Washing Machines, Air conditions, Microwave Ovens, Cars, Tractors and Two-wheelers etc. These are supplied as per the following procedure :-
The individual customers will obtain information from CSD Website at or from CSD Area Depots & confirm about the availability of these items with the respective dealers. The dealers, in turn, will keep CSD Area Manager informed about the availability of the items from time to time.

The individual customer is required to submit the prescribed form (available with depots/CSD website) duly filled-in and countersigned by the Commanding Officer of the unit, in case of Servicemen & by Station Headquarters or DSS&A Board in case of Ex-servicemen, along-with a UTR generated by a payee Bank and duly signed and stamped by the Banker in token of having transferred the amount through RTGS/NEFT, towards the price of the item. The UTR shall invariably mention the name of the customer who has actually transferred the amount. Every Depot has separate account number and bank; hence, customer is required to verify Bank Account number of the Area Depot before transferring money through RTGS/NEFT to avoid any complication at later stage.
After completion of formalities at the depot, like preparation of Official Receipt, Local Supply Order(LS) on supplier etc., the individual is given an authority letter and a copy of LS Order which is to be submitted to the distributor/dealer for getting the delivery of the item demanded. Normally, AFD-I category items are delivered, based on availability with local dealers.

Category - II
These items are procured by CSD Area Depots based on firm demand received from URC to depot and sold to consumers through URCs for example Ovens, Geysers, Foot Model Sewing Machines, Cooking Ranges, Air Coolers, coir mattress and few other high-value household durable goods (details contained in the Pictorial Price-List) as per the following procedure:-

A separate indent marked AFD-II, duly signed by the Commanding Officer countersigned by Brigadier or equivalent officer should be sent to the depot once a month alongwith the normal demand.

Based on the above indent, orders are placed by the depot on the firm for the supply of item.
On receipt of the item at the Area Depot, the same is invoiced and issued to URC.

Normally it takes three to four weeks for receipt of such items from suppliers.

URCs must ensure immediate collection of such items from depot.

Demand for AFD-II category items, once placed, cannot be cancelled.
