Following the statement made by Singh, the state issued a notice to all administrative heads to constitute verification teams at the state level as well as at the district level for verification and checking of government quarters.

As per the notice, if any government employee or some other private parties are found either occupying government quarters unauthorisedly or subletting to someone else, then strict disciplinary action like suspension of government employee as deemed fit under appropriate section of CCS (CCA) rules will be initiated. The notice said even FIRs may be lodged. An IRB jawan was also placed under suspension on Thursday for renting out the government quarter allotted to him to a civilian.
