Cars Q&A

Hi, I would like to purchase a car from CSD as my father is an ex-servicemen wherin the CSD personnel say that they would require a four wheeler driving licence to purchase a car through CSD. When I approached the CSD depot for purchase of four wheeler less than 1300cc, they said " you should be a four wheeler license holder, then only you can avail the car. Otherwise , it is not possible. At this age of 65, how can my dad get a license? Would like to know whether the beneficiary pensioner should be a four wheeler license holder to purchase a car through CSD?

For purchaning through CSD, the buyer should have relevent licence and it should be taken in his name.Otherwise it can be bought from outside dealers.

The answer to this question is a resounding NO. There is no need as per the Motor Vehicle Act or Rules that for purchase of a four wheeler it is necessary that the person have a 4 wheeler license. As the person is an ex service man and also a senior citizen, it is not possible for him to obtain a regular driving license legally. You should write a representation producing the medical document of your father and send it to the officer concerned and also to the Ministry of Defence.

Moreover such persons often have health problems like heart or BP problems. Their hearing also would be poor like their eye sight. These persons could very well use a driver or their children to use the car for their needs.

There is no written condition in the guidelines for CSD that 4 wheeler licence is necessary. The guys in the CSD only want us to go private dealers directly so that they get their commission.

you should take down the name of the officer who said this and prosecute him. If you go to a good lawyer and file a case before the High Court, I am sure that you will win hands down.

All the best.
