Central Automobile Workshop
The Central Automobile Workshop, was set-up in January, 1984 with a view to effect economy in the repair of university vehicles, proper maintenance and service to the entire satisfaction of the concerned departments. In 1982-83, there were fifty four vehicles in the University out of which thirty eight were on the road and sixteen vehicles were off the road. In 1983-84, the number rose to sixty three, out of which thirty nine vehicles were on the road and twenty four vehicles were off the road.
At present eighty vehicles with tractors are in the university. Out of which nine vehicles are off road all the university vehicles are being repaired at the Central Automobile Workshop. The repairing cost of vehicles comedown to a considerable extent as compared to the outside repair.
The University Filling Station was established in May, 1986. It is supplying Petrol, Diesel Oil and Lubricating Oil for the university vehicles and this facility has been extended to the vehicles owned by the University Staff and Students (approximately ten thousand vehicles).
At present the University Petrol Pump has three dispencing units of petrol & one dispearing unit of diesel. Now we are procuring 70 KL petrol & 15 KL HSD per month from Indian Oil Corporation Sale & Purchase Accounts were formerly maintained manually but from 2010 all the accounts are being maintained through computers.
Earlier we used to procure the fuel from Indian Oil Corporation through demand draft which was very expensive affair. Now we are transferring the money through R.T.G.S. system & thus saving a handsome amount on every transaction.
