Overstaying in government accommodation will attract higher rental charges with authorities approving revised rates and increasing component every subsequent months until the house is vacated.
‘Damages’ or market rent for the first month of “unauthorised occupation” of general pool residential accommodation for various cities would be in the range of 40-55 times of what occupants pay every month depending upon the type of house.
However, the rates will increase in telescopic manner from second month onwards- 10 per cent, 20 per cent, and so on of the rent – for every subsequent month in addition to the market rent until the house is vacated, as per the revised rates.
“The revised rates of damages will be applicable to all unauthorised occupants as on July 1, 2016 and to those who are subsequently declared unauthorised occupants,” Directorate of Estates, which is under Urban Development Ministry, said in a recent order.
The rates are higher in case of subletting. In such cases, the revised rates are fixed at two times of the market rate for the first month and there will be additional charges of 10 per cent, 20 per ent, 30 per cent, 40 per cent and so on every subsequent month.
