Allotment of Quarters on medical grounds

The Directorate of Estates has already issued an Office Memorandum dated 17.11.1997 and 08.07.2008 on allotment of Government Accommodation on medical grounds.

Due to paucity of units in the higher types, of late it is seen that medical ground has become a soft route to procure allotment of accommodation of the category, which the concerned officer is not likely to get in his turn in the near future. This resulting in junior officers getting higher type of accommodation on medical grounds while senior are waiting for years. This practice has become a cause of concern for a large number of officers waiting to get 2-3 types below their entitlement on their regular turn. With a view to provide accommodation to the needy on medical ground and also ensure that the facility is not misused to procure an accommodation higher than what he/she may get in normal course on the basis of his/her seniority in the waiting list it has now been decided with the approval of competent authority that the following guidelines be observed by the committee while considering and recommending cases of discretionary allotment on medical ground in addition to the existing guidelines.
