Cabinet secretariat auctions two old white ambassadors. Interested?

DO YOU have any fascination for white ambassador cars? Cabinet secretariat is auctioning two such cars which are currently being displayed at its campus inside the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The description of the nine year old cars, as written in the bid documents, says both are…
in good running condition, and have music systems fitted in those. One of the cars has an extra fan for the driver.
Any individual or agency can bid for the same. The quotation will be received till 3 pm on May 28, and the bids will be opened on the same day at 3.30 pm. The highest bidder will be able to take away the car after  paying the agreed amount.
Interested parties can inspect the vehicles between 4 to 5 pm on any working day till May 24 at the Cabinet secretariat premises.
Significantly, the government is quietly disposing off ambassador cars and getting its old fleet replaced by new sedans like SX4, Ford etc. Cabinet secretary and a number of other Union secretaries now drive SX4 which incidentally use an advertising tagline called “Men are back”.

Action and Appointments
a) The Central government has accorded approval for inter-cadre deputation of Anoop Khinchi, a 2008 batch Nagaland cadre IAS from Nagaland cadre to Rajasthan cadre for a period of three years from the date of assumption of charge or until further orders, whichever is earlier.

  1. Unfortunately auctions are usually where dealers unload cars they cannot sell for one reason or another, but very few good cars make it to an auction.
