A PWD circular issued recently says that in several cases the allottees stay beyond the date of retirement by upto eight to 10 months, and then seek ex-post facto approval.

“It is therefore informed that all retiring officers who are residing in government flats should apply for retention of house (post-retirement) well in advance, in any case, not later than two months of the retirement,” the circular states.

It also states that all such cases where the request for retention is received after two months of retirement, will be rejected and damage charges levied for the period of stay beyond two months.
