Central Government Holiday Homes: Bank Draft in favour of Booking Authority
Central Government Holiday Homes: Bank Draft in favour of Booking Authority irrespective of place of Holiday Home
Directorate of Estates, Ministry of Urban Development has observed that the present practice of drawing Demand Draft or Pay order in favour of authority at the place of holiday home viz., Shimla , Agra etc., while booking made through various booking authorities, causes much delay due to transfer of demand draft / pay order from the booking authority to authority at the place of holiday home after confirmation of booking to encash the same.
Now, Directorate Estates has come up with a new procedure. Central Government Employees who are booking for a holiday home has to take Demand Draft or Pay order in favour of booking authority only irrespect of place of Holiday home.

(i) EM/AEM, Kolkata; AEM, Chennai and AEM, Nagpur will accept the bank draft/pay order towards booking charges of holiday homes / guest houses in favour of the concerned booking authority itself who is looking after the booking and not in favour of other authorities and O/o concerned booking authority will itself deposit the booking charges in the Government account.
