Instances of Sub-letting and oversatay in Govt. accommodation are rampant.
Overstaying in Government Accommodation will now attract higher penal rental as Public Premises Authorities have approved revised rates and increased component every subsequent months until the house is finally vacated.
‘Damages’ or Market Rent of the occupied Property for the first month of “unauthorised occupation” of General Pool Residential Accommodation for all the cities would now be in the range of 40-55 times higher than what occupants pay every month depending upon the type of house occupied.
However, the Penal Rates will increase in a telescopic manner from second month onwards- @10 per cent, 20 per cent, and likewise for the rent – for each subsequent month in addition to the Market Rent until the house is finally Physically vacated, as per the such Penal rates.
“The revised rates of Penal Rent will be applicable to all the unauthorized occupants who are in Possession of any Public Premises as on July 1, 2016 and thereafter and to those who are subsequently declared unauthorised occupants in such Public Premises,” Directorate of Estates, under Urban Development Ministry, has disclosed in a recent order.
The rates are much more higher in case of subletting to Third Parties.
In such cases of Sub- Letting, the revised rates are fixed at two times of the market rate for the first month apart from the additional charges of 10 per cent, 20 per cent, 30 per cent, 40 per cent and so on every subsequent month.
