New Delhi: To accommodate newly elected Members of Parliament, the Lok Sabha Secretariat has sent notices to about 265 former MPs asking them to vacate their houses by June 18.

Describing the exercise as “routine”, Lok Sabha Secretary General P Sreedharan said, “The secretariat has informed all former MPs to vacate their houses by June 18. As far as former ministers are concerned the Directorate of Estate has asked them to hand over their bungalows by June 26.”

There are about 320 new MPs, including newly appointed ministers, in the 16th Lok Sabha, who have to be provided accommodation in the national capital.  

While the Directorate of Estate (DoE) is responsible for providing bungalows to ministers, the Lok Sabha Housing Committee will be allocating houses to new MPs.  

The Lok Sabha Housing Committee will be constituted by the Speaker after the first session gets over on June 11.
