The small quota of 15% of residential accommodation of the Defence/Army Pool is grossly inadequate and therefore it causes extreme hardship to the defence civilian employees who have to make their own arrangement for residential accommodation.

2. It has been noticed that Dte of Estates has already granted eligibility for GPRA to majority of defence establishments in Delhi. The defence civilian employees serving in these defence establishments are already availing the facilities of Residential Accommodation of Dte of Estates. Only a few defence establishments are not covered in the list of eligible offices maintained by the Dte of Estates and a list of 8 such defence establishments in Delhi is at Annexure.

3. In view of the hardship being experienced by the Civilian employees of these eight defence establishments, it is requested that eligibility code for allotment of General Pool Residential accommodation (GPRA) to the staff of these defence establishments/offices may please be allotted. It is certified that the essential requirements, listed below, for a Central Government offices to be treated as ‘eligible offices’ for the purpose of the allotment of Government Residences (General Pool in Delhi) Rules, 1963, are fulfilled by these offices/defence establishments:

(i) These offices/establishments have been situated in Delhi/New Delhi/Delhi Cantt since decades and in most of the cases before independence.

(ii) They are attached/subordinate offices of Ministry of Defence under Government of India.

(iii) The salary of their employees is paid from the Consolidated Fund of India.

(iv) 15% quota of residential accommodation of the Defence/Army Pool is not adequate.

4. This issues with the approval of Defence Secretary.

Several instructions have been issued from time to time by this Directorate regarding regularization / allotment of alternate accommodation in the name of eligible spouse / ward of an allottee in the event of death / retirement / transfer of the allottee. It has been observed that some of the provisions contained in these instructions are inconsistent. Further, the rationale behind providing the facility of regularization / allotment of alternate accommodation in the name of the spouse/ward of the deceased/retired/transferred allottee is to avoid dislocation and hardships to the family of the alottee due to such an event. It is, however, felt that imposition of conditions like date of priority should be covered for providing such a facility undermines the very motive behind such a provision and causes undue hardships to the family of the allottee.

2 In view of above, the matter has been reviewed and, in supersession of all previous Orders/OMs issued by this Directorate in the subject. it has now been decided with the approval of the competent authority to consolidate the several instructions issued from time to time in this regard by harmonizing and modifying them as under

regularized/allotted in the name of such a spouse/ward provided the appointment is secured within a period of three years after the death of the allottee and the accommodation in occupation has not been vacated, and

d) A daughter-in-law, working in an eligible office, will also be eligible for regularization/allotment of alternate accommodation.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:  Revision of rates of damages for unauthorized occupation of General Pool Residential Accommodation in metropolitan cities of India

 

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Directorate’ O.M of even number dated 6th December 2012 notifying the revised rates of damages to be chargeable from unauthorized occupants of General Pool Residential Accommodation (GPRA) from 1st January 2013. The revised rates were different for Central and Non-Central localities as well as for higher and lower types at the same station. It was also noticed that for some categories, the revised rates were very high, in some cases, even more than the basic pay of the eligible officers. The rates revised vide above- said OM have been reviewed on receipt of feed-back from the allottees and it is felt that the concept of Central/Non-Central area at the same station is discriminatory and should be done away with.

2. In view of above, it has been decided to revise the rates of damages notified vide OM dated 6th December 2012 as per Annexure at a uniform rate of 55 times of normal rate of licence fee in respect of Type-VII and Type-VIII, 50 times of the normal rate of licence fee in respect of Type-IV(Spl) to Type-VI and 40 times of the normal rate of licence fee in respect of Type-I to Type-IV categories of accommodation irrespective of the Central/Non-Central/area in all metropolitan cities except Mumbai for which separate rates have been given in the Annexure.

 

3. The revised rates being notified vide this OM shall be effective from 1st January 2013 and will be valid till 31.3.2014 or till further orders. The rates of damages will automatically get revised as and when the rate of normal licence fee under FR 45-A is revised. In cases, where higher rates have been charged between 1st January 2013 till notification of new rates, the same may be adjusted/refunded.

 

4. In respect of other departmental pools of accommodation in Delhi/other stations, the rates of damages prescribed for GPRA shall be adopted by such other Ministries/Departments. Similar rates of damages are to be worked out by the CPWD for other stations wherever GPRA is available and the rates so worked out are to be adopted for recovery of damages in respect of GPRA as well as departmental pool of accommodation at these stations. Where there is no GPRA, the concerned Ministry/Department have to get suitable unit rate worked out by the CPWD/local PWD.

 

5. This issues with the concurrence of Integrated Finance Wing of the Ministry of Urban Development under its Diary No. 169/US(D.IV)/FD/13 dated 31.05.2013.

 

6. This supersedes this Directorate’s OM of even number dated 6th December 2012.
