Members of Parliament and babus will no longer be able to overstay in central government accommodations by exploiting legal loopholes as the Cabinet on Wednesday approved relevant amendment to the law.

The Union Cabinet gave its nod to changes in the Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorized Occupants) Act, 1971, to give powers to officials to evict such people within three days of their overstay, provided they are not satisfied with their appeal for extension.

The changes also seek to debar such occupants to move any court below the high court with their appeals for overstay.

Currently, it takes around a month to issue the vacation orders after issuing notices and hearing out the occupants. Once the vacation order is issued, another up to 30 days are given to the occupants for leaving the premises. In between, the occupants move the courts, especially the lower courts, to get a stay order.

With the amendments, the process will end in three days.
