The relentless surge in petrol prices has driven up travel expenses significantly. In response, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has implemented a reduction in fuel Quota allowances for its vehicles and senior officers.
Changes in Fuel Quotas:
- Chairman CDA’s vehicle now has a reduced fuel quota, down from 600 liters to 400 liters.
- Board members’ vehicles are also subject to a reduction, with their fuel capacity lowered from 400 liters to 300 liters.
Fuel Allocation for Directors and DGs:
- Directors and DGs are now allocated a fixed monthly limit of 175 liters for both petrol and diesel.
Fuel Allotment for Deputy Directors and Assistant Directors:
- Deputy directors, assistant directors, and other officers will receive a monthly allocation of 150 liters of fuel.
It’s important to note that the fuel limits for operational vehicles remain unchanged. This adjustment specifically pertains to vehicles designated for personal use by officers, as confirmed by CDA resources.
Financial Savings and Austerity Measures: By reducing the fuel quotas for these officers, the CDA aims to curtail its monthly fuel expenditures, aligning with government-imposed austerity measures designed to lower operational costs. This proactive step seeks to address the financial challenges posed by escalating petrol prices.
