Apex court asks Centre for list of allottees of govt bungalows

NEW DELHI (TIP): The Supreme Court on November 7 asked the Centre to furnish the list of allottees of government bungalows in the national capital, including those who occupied the accommodation under the five per cent discretionary quota. A bench of Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justice A K Sikri also told solicitor general Ranjit Kumar, representing the Centre, to submit a list of people who over-stayed in the government bungalows, particularly in type VI, VII and VIII categories. The court’s order to the Government came after amicus curiae and senior advocate Meenakshi Arora submitted that a large number of bungalows were occupied by former ministers. The squatters continued occupation on the ground that they were re-elected to Parliament, she claimed. She gave the example of former Union minister Arjun Singh, whose wife continued to squat in the allotted bungalow due to health reasons.
