Delhi Police help sought to evict 27 ex-MPs overstaying in govt accommodations in Lutyens Delhi, water, power and gas supply may be disconnected

According to the law, former MPs have to vacate their respective accommodation within one month of dissolution of the previous Lok Sabha.

The Lok Sabha House Committee taking strong action against the 27 ex-MPs who have been overstaying in their official residences in Lutyen’s Delhi despite repeated notices from the authorities to move out, has sought Delhi police help to immediately get the accommodations vacated. It has also decided to cut off the water, power and gas connections for these MPs to necessitate immediate eviction.

The 12-member committee is headed by BJP member from Navsari (Gujarat) C R Patil. The committee spearheaded the process after it was reported that in August more than 200 former Lok Sabha MPs have still not vacated their official bungalows here.

According to the law, former MPs have to vacate their respective accommodation within one month of dissolution of the previous Lok Sabha. President Ram Nath Kovind had on May 25 dissolved the 16th Lok Sabha with immediate effect on the recommendation of the Union Cabinet after the Modi government was formed for a second term.

Employees of the Government of India, including MPs, are provided residential accommodation while they are in service or till the end of their office term on the basis of a license generally given till the end of their term. After this license is expired, they are no longer eligible to occupy the accommodation and are required to vacate it immediately.

With these ex-MPs not vacating the government accommodations, the newly-elected MPs are not getting to stay in these bungalows and are being forced to stay at transit accommodation such as their respective state guest houses or the Western Court, sources said. The panel has been unable to allot houses to the MPs despite their repeated requests, they added.
