3.4 Grants and other forms of monetary assistance to co-operative consumers’ stores :

By TRs Nos. 579 and 1118 of 1972, sanction was accorded to co-operative consumers’ stores run by Port Trust employees being given, out of the Welfare Fund, a subsidy, equal to one-third of the total expenditure on the societies’ staff, or 1% of the sales turn-over, whichever is less, on the basis of the preceding co-operative year, i.e. July to June. On the authority of this TR, the Chief Accountant is authorising expenditure on the scale and conditions laid down in the TR on receipt of claims submitted through the Chief Labour Officer. The Chairman has decided that this arrangement may be continued.
