if government employees or some other private parties are found either occupying government quarters unauthorisedly or subletting to someone else, strict disciplinary actions under the appropriate sections of the CCS (CCA) Rules will be initiated.
In a bid to keep up with its spectacle of good governance, the state government has issued a strict warning against illegal occupants of government quarters and has formed verification teams to carry out eviction drives immediately.
An office memorandum issued by the Secretariat, Works Department, Government of Manipur dated April 26, 2022 stated that there are instances of government quarters including government guest houses and government buildings either illegally occupied or sublet to unauthorised/illegal occupants by the government employees to whom the quarters are alloted both at the district level as well as within the vicinity of Imphal city. This unauthorised occupation of government quarters has adversely affected and deprived those genuine government employees from getting government accommodation.
In order to streamline proper allotment of government quarters both at the District Headquarters as well as within the vicinity of Imphal City and to prevent such unauthorised occupation of government quarters, the Government of Manipur has constituted several high level verification teams led by executive engineers of PWD with representatives from concerned DC and SP , both at the State level and District level to identify illegal/unauthorised occupants of government quarters and carry out surprise eviction drives thereof immediately, said the memorandum.
The office memorandum further stated that during the checking, if government employees or some other private parties/persons are found either occupying government quarters unauthorisedly or subletting to someone else, strict disciplinary actions like suspension of the concerned government employees as deem fit under the appropriate sections of the CCS (CCA) Rules will be initiated. And if the unauthorised occupants are found to be private parties/individuals, then they will be booked under the appropriate ‘Rule of Law’ in force and even FIRs will be lodged against them and prompt punitive action will be taken against them.
Considering the serious nature of such unauthorised occupation of government quarters, the state government warned all government employees including those serving in the public undertakings and the private parties/individuals that they should not occupy any government quarters unauthorisedly and any government employees found indulging in such unauthorised occupation of government quarters will be debarred from allotting government quarters in their remaining service period.
