Ex-IAS, judges appointed as chairmen can’t retain govt houses

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, February 5

With the new Government Residences (Chandigarh Administration General Pool) Allotment (Amendment) Rules, 2020, coming in force, retired senior government functionaries, including bureaucrats and judges, will not be able to retain their palatial government bungalows in Chandigarh even after their appointment as the chairmen of various commissions.

Now, only five chairpersons of the statutory commissions such as those of Human Rights Commission, Lokayuktas, the Chief Information Commissioners, the State Election Commissioners and the Chief Commissioners of Right to Service established by Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh will be entitled for government accommodation.

“The state government/UT Administrator will decide as to which commission will be given benefit. The quota of five houses under this category will not be extended under any circumstances,” said a notification issued by Vinod P Kavle, Secretary, House Allotment Committee of the Chandigarh Administration.

Till now, a majority of the former IAS and IPS officers and judges managed their posting as the chairpersons of various commissions, enabling them to retain their government accommodation even after retirement.

A large number of eligible officers from Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh are staying in below category houses or transit accommodation or in UT Guest House.
