The Urban Development Ministry has put on hold the UPA government’s last order for allotment of bungalows and extended occupation to Congress leaders and loyalists in Lutyens’ Delhi.
The beneficiaries of the last order by the Cabinet Committee on Accommodation (CCA) in the previous government included Assam CM Tarun Gogoi, former UIDAI chief Nandan Nilekani, Rajya Sabha member K T S Tulsi, former PM Manmohan Singh’s adviser T K A Nair and the late Arjun Singh’s wife Saroj Kumari among others.
The ministry has also decided that bungalows in Lutyens’ zone will only be allotted to the Union Council of Ministers and heads of constitutional bodies, not to MPs. The previous government had allotted bungalows reserved for ministers and heads of constitutional bodies to many MPs, from the discretionary quota of the Minister or through the CCA.

The allotment for MPs is done through the Lok Sabha Secretariat which has a pool of flats and houses.
The ministry has served eviction notices to all current occupants who have been asked to vacate the bungalows by June 18. The Lok Sabha Secretariat has also sent notices to about 265 former MPs in this connection.
