The above is insane if I am reading this correctly.  In Pakistan, the commissioned officers were never provided rations.  Rations were/are only for JCOs/NCOs and ORs.  Officers were always expected to take care of their own rations out of their pay.  The whole idea was to negate the opportunity for corruption by the officers, because by virtue of their rank, they can pressure the ORs to commit pilfer on their behalf.
