Sir/Madam,

I am directed to this Directorate letter of even number dated 14.02.2020 on the above noted subject.

2. It has been observed that the instructions contained in Rule 7(b) (now Rule 10) of House Building Advance Rules (HBA)- 2017 are not being followed scrupulously. The Rule provides that immediately on completion or purchase of house / flat, as the case may be, the Government servant concerned shall insure the house / flat at his own cost with recognized institutions as approved by IRDA for not less than the amount of advance and shall keep it so insured against damage by fire, flood and light, till the advance together with a sum of interest thereon is full repaid to Government and deposit the policy with Government. Numerous cases are, however, being referred for condonation of periods of non-insurance

3. The Rule further provides that the Heads of Departments are required to obtain a certificate annually in the month of July, before disbursement of the pay for the month of July from each and every Government servant.
