OFFICE MEMORANDUM

 

Subject: Retention of General Pool Residential Accommodation under SR 317-B-11 and SR 317-B-22 on retirement/transfer/ death of an allottee posted to a non-family station in India

As per the extant provisions, in the event of retirement/transfer/ death of an allottee, the allottee or his/her family is permitted to retain Government accommodation on payment of normal licence fee for the period permissible under the provisions of SR 317-B-11 and a further retention is also allowed on payment of prescribed licence fee for the periods permissible under the provisions of SR 317-B-22 provided the accommodation is required for bona-fide use of the allottee or his/her family. However, the extended period of retention under SR 317-B-22 is not allowed in the event of death of an allottee in cases where the deceased allottee or his/her dependent family members own a house at the last place of posting.

2. Further, as per OM No.12035(26)/90-Pol.II dated 13.12.1991, in the event of death/retirement/transfer of an allottee who has been posted/transferred to a non-family station and permitted to retain Government accommodation occupied by him/her at the last place of posting for bona-fide educational needs of his/her children under SR 317-B-18, the allottee or his/her family is allowed a further retention of accommodation for the periods permissible under the provisions of SR 317-B-22 and the facility of retention of accommodation for the periods permissible under the provisions of SR 317-B-11 is not allowed.

3. However, keeping in view the hardships being faced by the allottees posted/transferred to non-family stations in India, it has now been decided that in the event of retirement/transfer/death of an allottee during his/her posting to a non-family station, the allottee or his/her family shall be allowed the facility of retention of Government accommodation at the last place of posting for the periods permissible under the provisions of both SR 317-B-11 and SR 317-B-22 on payment of prescribed licence fee. However, the extended period of retention under SR 317-B-22 shall not be allowed in the event of death of an allottee in cases where the deceased allottee or his/her dependent family members own a house at the last place of posting.

4. This OM will be applicable from the date of issue. The cases which have been decided will not be re-opened.

5. This supersedes all the Office Memorandums/Orders issued from time to time prior to issue of this OM in this regard, if any.

6. This issues with the approval of Hon’ble Minister of Urban Development.
