Directorate’s O.M. of even number dated the 31st July, 2000, provides for regularization of the accommodation in case of re-posting within a period of one year i.e. within four months after the permissible retention period of eight months in the case of transfer. The above referred O.M. also provides for regularisation of the house in case of re-posting within a period of four months beyond the permissible period of eight months by charging double rate of normal licence fee even though the date of priority of the officer is not covered. This has created an anomalous situation because an officer vacating the house after eight months is charged at damage rate whereas on the other hand in the case of re-posting an officer is charged only double the normal rate up to a period of one year from the date of transfer.
This position was re-considered by the Directorate and it has been decided that henceforth regularisation in the case of re-posting will be regulated as under;
- Regularization will be considered only in cases where re-posting takes place within the permissible retention period of eight months (two months on normal licence fee and six months on double the normal licence fee on medical/educational grounds).
- Retention beyond the permissible retention period will be treated as unauthorized and charged at damage rate.
- In cases, where re-posting in eligible organization takes place beyond the permissible period of retention of eight months, damage rate of licence fee will be charged for the period beyond eight months and regularisation will be allowed only if the date of priority is covered.
