Office Memorandum

Subject: Streamlining the process of Eligibility Applications submitted to DoE under Rule 4 and Rule 5 of CGGPRA Rules, 2017-reg.

Eligibility to central government offices for GPRA at Delhi and outside Delhi is granted by this Directorate under Rule 4 and Rule 5 of CGGPRA Rules-2017, respectively. A Central Government office which fulfills the conditions of the aforesaid rules may make an online application to the Directorate of Estates (DoE) for allotment of accommodation after obtaining the approval of the Joint Secretary of the Ministry concerned and send its stamped/signed print-out to DoE.

2. As per present practice, individual offices send the proposal to DoE directly. Consequently, the applications/proposals are received in different manners having a lot of ambiguities. Often, the above quoted approval of JS of the concerned Ministry is found to be missing/incomplete. It is essential for DoE to ensure that the applicant office fulfills the condition of Rule 4/5 for getting eligibility. Hence, it is very important to ensure that the proposals are properly and independently examined at the concerned Ministry/Department and approval of the Joint Secretary or above level officer is obtained after such examination to declare that the applying office fulfills the condition of Rule 4 or 5 (as the case maybe). The examination will be uniform if done at one particular point in the concerned Ministry/Department and authenticity of the papers forwarded to DoE in such manner can be established easily.

3. In view of above, it has been decided that, henceforth, this Directorate will accept all eligibility applications only from the Secretariat of the concerned Ministry/Department. Ineligible Attached/ Subordinate Offices of the concerned Ministry/Department shall make online application in e-sampada portal and send its signed/stamped printout to the secretariat of the Ministry/ Department concerned. Ministries/Departments shall scrutinize the applications, take approval of their JS/above level officer in the charge of Administration/Establishment [or any other suitable JS/above level officer nominated for this purpose] and, thereafter, forward all eligibility applications/proposals in a standard manner (proforma annexed) to DoE. It would be responsibility of the Ministry concerned to ensure that the information filled in the application are authentic and the applying office fulfills all the conditions of Rule 4 or 5 of CGGPRA Rules, 2017.

This issues with the approval of the Competent Authority.
