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.

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:
