Sub: Clarification to Supplementary Rules 317-B-5 – Classification of Residences, eligibility, date of priority and inter-so seniority for type of General Pool Residential Accommodation.
The undersigned is directed to invite attention to SR 317-B-5 of the Allotment of Government Residences (General Pool in Delhi) Rules, 1963 which provides the classification of residences, eligibility, date of priority and inter-se seniority for various types of General Pool Residential Accommodation (GPRA).
2. – It has also been brought to the notice of the Directorate of Estates that some same batch officers, whose basic pay is more than their counterparts, though both are posted in Delhi under Central Staffing Scheme in various Ministries/Departments but both drawing the same Grade Pay at the Centre. Moreover, some junior officers are drawing more pay in the Pay Band than their seniors. While applying for a particular type of accommodation, a junior officer is placed above the senior officer as he draws more pay in the pay band than his senior officer or same batch officer due to his increase in basic pay acquired from other posting/cadre.
3. The pay of the officers on deputation under Central Staffing Scheme has to be fixed as per the instructions and clarifications issued from time to time by the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance in this regard.
4. Another issue which has been brought to the notice of the Directorate of Estates is that some officers have included Non Practicing Allowance [NPA] with basic pay while applying for general pool residential accommodation in their applications though Non Practicing Allowance [NPA] and Military Service Pay [MSP] have not been made as part of basic pay for eligibility of general pool residential accommodation after implementation of 6″‘ CPC recommendations.
5. In order to remove the discrepancies mentioned above, it has been decided with the approval of the competent authority that the following will be followed in preparation of unified waiting lists for allotment of various types of general pool residential accommodation under SR 317-B-5:
i) . While deciding inter-se seniority as per sub-clause (c)(iii) of Explanation to SR 317-B-5, the basic pay + grade pay or basic pay, as the case may be, of the officer shall be restricted to the maximum pay in the Pay Band i.e. Basic Pay + Grade Pay or Basic Pay granted to a post in the Central Government for the purpose of allotment of general pool residential accommodation, though the officer draws more than the maximum pay in the pay band of Central Government due to his/her promotion in other posting/cadre.
ii) The Non-Practicing Allowance [NPA] and Military Service Pay [MSP] shall not be taken into account along with basic pay + grade pay or basic pay, as the case may be, for consideration of eligibility of an officer for General Pool Residential Accommodation.
