provided to them under any arrangements or to field service areas where they
are precluded from taking their families for not less than six months in the
previous duty station, will on posting to Defence HQrs have their seniority

posted from CI ops/ High Risk Area/ field area and were in occupation of reserved

earmarked accn is the organizational/ functional requirement owing to critical nature
of their posting. The incumbent has no other option to exercise but to stay in the
earmarked accn which cannot be equated to a married accn or rather does not serve the
purpose of a married accn as the families of such officers are not permitted to stay with
them at these stations.

Station Seniority

24. Officers on the regular strength posted from any of the Units in Delhi, New
Delhi, Tughlakabad and Palam area to AFHQ are eligible for seniority from the
original date of their posting to such a station immediately prior to their posting to
AFHQ. For this purpose, the officer has to apply while filling up the application for
married accommodation on the prescribed format duly certified by the competent
authority from the previous unit. Such seniority will not be admissible to officers
posted from Civil Ministries / Department / Organisations located in Delhi / New
Delhi as mentioned in Ministry of Defence letter No.13(1)/89/D(Q&C) dated 31 Jan
1990 (Annexure-I).

ADDENDUM. As per Govt of India letter No. 41187/PSOC-95/CAO/Q-1 dated 27 Jun

26. If an officer is married after his posting, the seniority for allotment of married
accommodation will count from the date of receipt of application in the Quartering
Office after his marriage.

Procedure for Allotment

27. Offer of allotment in respect of bungalows will be made as soon as vacation


reports are received from the concerned CPWD authorities. In respect of all other
types of accommodation, offer of allotment will be made normally on 1st and 3rd
Fridays of the month. The offer letter will contain a list of vacant houses and
eligible officers as also the date / time by which the acceptance will be entertained
and the date of allotment.
28. The officer whose name appears in the offer letter should personally ensure
that his reply is sent by hand to reach Quartering Officer by the prescribed time and
date. Replies received late would not be normally entertained. Officers can exercise
a choice in the matter of selection of accommodation depending on their position in
the offer letter. Thus the senior most officer accepting the accommodation can
choose any house in the offer letter. The next officer can similarly exercise his
choice. While officers may indicate their preference for the houses offered as above,
they are obliged to give acceptance for all the houses offered to avoid relegation.
However, officers who have applied for allotment in specified areas, before the offer
is made as per rules, need indicate their preference only for the accommodation
located in the area / floors they have specified. Allotment will be made strictly in the
order of the seniority of the officers in the offer list vis-à-vis the preference given by
them.

29. In case of non-availability of an officer at the time of receipt of the offer letter
due to exigency of service etc. the same will be communicated to the Quartering
Officer under the signature of his next superior officer along with supporting
documents and this will not bring about any relegation for allotment of
accommodation. However, such communication should reach the Quartering Officer
before expiry of time and date prescribed in the offer letter. Letters received after
the prescribed time and date will not be accepted. In case the officer proceeds on
leave / temporary duty after receipt of the offer letter he should nominate another
officer to accept / take over the accommodation on his behalf. Otherwise he will be
relegated.

Relegation

30. An officer will be relegated to the bottom of the waiting list in case he does
not send his acceptance as explained in the preceding paragraphs within the period
specified in the offer lists or refuses to accept a house duly allotted to him. The
period of relegation for different type of accommodation is under:_

(a) Type VIII Accommodation:- Officers are relegated for six months.
Relegation of PSOs for this type of accommodation will be regulated as
under:-

(i) In case of refusal, PSOs will be relegated for type VIII


accommodation for a period of six months. However, since there is no
separate pool of Type VIII accommodation for PSOs and non- PSOs, they
will be relegated for this type of accommodation among PSOs only. In
other words, a PSO even if relegated will have precedence over non-
PSOs for allotment of accommodation.

AMENDMENT . As per PSOC decision dated 03 Jul 2014, PSO’s relegated


for Type VIII accn will figure at the bottom of the waitlist of PSO’s at the
time of relegation, he will however, still be senior in the waitlist to PSO’s
registered subsequently.

(ii) The relegation imposed on a non-PSO for a Type VIII


accommodation will held good even if subsequently he becomes a PSO
during the currency of the relegation period provided, other PSOs
already on the waiting list at that are undergoing relegation for refusal to
accept the same accommodation. In that case, his name will be entered
below the names of other relegated PSOs already on the list.

(b) Type VII Bungalows: Officers of the rank of Lt Gens and equivalents are
not relegated for refusing this type of accommodation. Maj Gens /
equivalents will be relegated for six months.

(c) Type VI bungalows: The period of relegation is three months.

(d) Regular Accommodation: The period of relegation is six months.

(e) 3-4 Roomed Hostel Accommodation: Officers who have got this type of
accommodation approved as specified area will be relegated for six months.

initially.

(f) Hired Accommodation / 2 Roomed Hostel: Period of relegation is three


months.

31. On completion of the period of relegation as above, the officers name will be
restored in the waiting list with the original seniority. An officer relegated twice
will be considered for allotment only on receipt of a request from him in writing
after the period of second relegation.

Waival of Relegation

32. The waival of the period of relegation will be considered on merit by the JS
(T) & CAO / Director in charge of quartering in CAO’s Office, in case an officer
applies for the same. The officer should submit his application to the Quartering
Office giving reasons for condoning the relegation, duly supported by documents
and recommended by the next superior officer.
