We propose a procedure which allows one to construct local symmetry generators of general quadratic Lagrangian theory. Manifest recurrence relations for generators in terms of the so-called structure matrices of the Dirac formalism are obtained. The procedure fulfill in terms of initial variables of the theory, and does not imply either separation of constraints on first and second class subsets or any other choice of basis for constraints.
