Crunch of Govt. accommodation in Delhi: Majorly because of retired officers' reluctance to vacate their allotted houses
This is a story of two officers belonging to premier civil services of the country. One is serving IAS officer while other is retired IAS officer. Bone of contention between them is the Govt's accommodation at posh Motibagh area of New Delhi.

Halim Khan, who retired as secretary of Govt. of India was allotted this posh bungalow which he has not vacated even after about one and half years of his retirement. According to the official sources ministry of Urban Development has imposed a hefty amount of penal rent and has reportedly sent police for getting the house vacated but didn't succeed.

When this citizen journalist tried to contact the officer over his mobile he neither took the call nor replied to the SMS. It is learnt that the officer has been0 appointed in some tribunal in Assam and on that ground he is retaining the house.

Meanwhile Haryana cadre IAS Officer, presently on deputation in Govt. of India, who was allotted this bungalow about six months back is waiting for the day when he can shift in the house.

Notably a large number of politicians, officers and journalists are occupying Govt. houses in national capital for years causing great inconvenience to those whom houses had been allotted. At least 5,000 central government employees who are entitled for Govt. accommodation are waiting for their turn.

Everybody wants to retain government's accommodation in Delhi and uses all weapons available in their armour for this purpose.
