A University of Delhi (DU) student Mansi has submitted a representation to Naresh Kumar (IAS), Chairman, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) regarding alleged illegal occupation of a government Bungalow number E1/2, in Satya Sadan, Chanakya Puri, New Delhi by a former Chief Secretary of Govt of NCT of Delhi. As per the representation, the said bungalow was reallotted to Mr Tripathi on being re-employed as the Chairman, Public Grievance Commission, NCT of Delhi after his superannuation retirement from services. Mr Tripathi’s tenure got over w.e.f. 30 0ctober 2017. But he continued to occupy the residence all the while availing the General Pool Residential Accommodation/ Interpol facility.

The student also claims that as per rules, only one month of retention of accommodation is allowed on demitting office. She has further alleged that, on the contrary, he has been illegally occupying the said accommodation even after months of demitting the office.


The student writes:

“Illegal occupation of the said occupation is not what compels me to write this letter to you, Sir. It is the non-performance of duty by one of the finest municipal bodies in Asia which causes me severe pain. The NDMC has the statutory liability of initiating proceedings under the provisions of Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorised Occupants) Act, 1971. It is unfortunate that Sh. Tripathi is being wilfully allowed by the concerned officials of NDMC to remain in the illegal occupation of the said accommodation due to the reasons best known to them. The illegal occupation of the government accommodations situated in the prime locations of the capital city of India at the taxpayer’s expense is extremely disturbing.”

The representation ends with a request to the Chairman to look into the matter and order the initiation of proceedings under the Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorised Occupants) Act, 1971 as well as an inquiry into the matter in the favour of justice.
