Housing reform

TENANTS occupying government quarters will pay garbage fees.

This is a part of ongoing reforms of government housing for eligible civil servants.

Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said over the years the Lands Ministry had been paying city and town rates to the municipal councils for government quarters and garbage fees were included in these rates.

"However, effective from this year, the garbage fees will be payable by the individuals occupying the government quarters," Mr Chand said.

"This is both for quarters occupied by eligible civil servants and those rented out by government at market rates to outside individuals."

He said this was stipulated in the PSC Circular No 79/2011.
