Why CSD Price is Low as compared to market ?

As we all know that goods that we buy from CSD are cheaper as compared to market. Firstly they are procured directly from the manufacturer in bulk so no middleman and thus their commission, secondly, certain taxes on these goods are exempted by both Central as well as State Govt.

The manufacturer are not suffering any loss as they are selling on the same rate as they sell to any other wholesale dealer on the other hand the State and Central Govt are suffering losses as they have exempted these goods from certain taxes.
