The Government Servants in B-1 to B-15 who have been granted House Building
Advance, Scooter advance and cycle advance and who dies while in service, the
outstanding amount of those advances would stand *waived off. This decision having the
prospective effect will be applicable in the cases occurring on or after 20.2.1992.
The outstanding balances on the books of A.G. office would be cleared by making
necessary budget provision under the relevant service head by Finance department on the
basis of information furnished by respective Administrative Departments. It has however
been observed that budget provision is usually delayed due to lack of in-time demand of
funds by the Administrative Departments which results in the delay in finalization of
family pension cases of the deceased employees.

In order to avoid such delays and early finalization of family pension it has been
decided that family pension cases of the deceased Government servants would not be
delayed by the Audit Authorities for want of budget provisions, provided a case for
necessary budget provision is initiated by the pension sanctioning authorities viz
Administrative Departments and other subordinate offices and a certificate in this regard is
furnished to the audit with the pension application. However, Administrative Departments,

*

before submission of family pension cases to the respective Audit Authorities, should
initiate case for the provision of budget with the Finance Department.

253-A. Advances to Government servants for the construction of houses are


regulated by the following rules :-

1- Advances may be made under the sanction of Ministers of the


Government of Pakistan, Heads of Departments, and Heads of Circles in the Pakistan
Post Office and Telegraphs and Telephone Department, to Government servants, who
desire to build houses, for occupation by themselves, at any place in Pakistan. No
advance is ordinarily permissible to a Government servant who is likely to retire before
complete recovery can be effected.

Note 1.- deleted.

Note.2 - Advances will be granted for the construction of new houses.


Advances will also be granted for purchasing a newly constructed house, or for
completely reconstructing a house already owned by the Government servant concerned,
or for extending/renovating a house already owned by the Government servant
concerned.

Government decision.- Building Advance for the purchase of flats in multi-


storeyed buildings may be granted to Government servants to the extent and subject to
the usual conditions prescribed for the admissibility of house building advance. This shall
be subject to the following further provisions :-

(a) Before receiving the amount of the advance, or payment of the amount to
the construction agency direct (vide para 2 below), the Government
servant concerned shall be required to execute an agreement in the
prescribed form attached; and after the purchase of the flat is complete to

8
execute and register the Mortgage deed in the prescribed form as security
for repayment of the amount advanced with interest;

(b) Satisfactory evidence shall have to be produced within 3 months of the


drawal of the advance to show that the amount has been spent on the
purchase of flat. This can be done by showing the valid legal receipt
issued by the Construction Agency concerned in token of the purchase
deed.

2. Where a Government servant desires that the payment of


the advance sanctioned under the above orders be made direct to the
construction agency, the Drawing and Disbursing Officer shall arrange
for the direct payment of the sanctioned amount to the agency
concerned and obtain a valid receipt in the name of the Government
servant from that agency and hand over the same to him.

Note.3 - House building advance for construction/purchase of houses in Azad


Kashmir territory may also be granted to the Federal Government servants domiciled in
Azad Kashmir subject to usual conditions.

Note.4 - Government servants are entitled to draw advances for construction of


houses either from the Government or from the House Building Finance Corporation but
not from both.

(i) deleted.

(ii) All such advances must be bona fide required for the purpose of building
suitable houses for the personal residence of the officers concerned, and if more is
advanced than shall be actually expended for the purpose, the surplus shall be refunded to
Government.

9
(iii) Advances for the construction of new houses may be drawn in two equal
installments. The first installment will be paid on the production of documents
establishing proprietary rights in the land and the second installment will be paid only
when the house reaches plinth level. Advances granted for reconstruction, purchase,
extension or renovation of houses may, however, be drawn in one installment, provided
all other conditions governing the execution and registration of mortgage deed, etc., are
duly fulfilled and the Government interest is fully secured. The repayment shall
commence from the month immediately after the grant of the second installment or six
months after the drawal of the first installment whichever is earlier. The repayment shall
be completed in 10 years in the case of a former superior service Government servant and
in 20 years in the case of a former class IV Government servant, provided that the age of
the Government servant concerned at the time of repayment of first installment is below
47 years in the former case and below 38 years in the later case. In the case of those who
would at the time of such repayment be attaining the age of 47 years or 38 years, as the
case may be, the number of installments by which recovery is effected, shall be so
regulated as to enable the recovery of the total amount advanced including interest,
possible before the date on which the officer would be reaching the age of 60 years.

Note.1. - The bills for the drawal of the advances when presented to audit should be
accompanied by a certificate in the following form from the Controlling Officer in the
case of gazetted officers and the drawing officer in respect of non-gazetted Government
servants.

Certified that Mr._________________ who has been granted a House Building


Advance of Rs.___________ has *produced documents stating proprietary rights in the
land on which the house is proposed to be built *|satisfied me that the house has reached
the plinth level.

Signature of Controlling/Drawing Officer.

*This portion may be deleted if the bill is drawn for the second installment.

10
Note.2. - Utilisation certificate shall be furnished in the following manner :-

1. Where the house building advance is drawn in installments.—At the end of


six months of each installment.
2. Where full advance is drawn in one installment.—At the end of one year from
the drawal of advance.

(iv) No advance shall exceed 24 months pay of a former


superior service Government servant and 36 months pay of a former
Class IV Government servant, to whom it is made. Not more than one
advance shall be made to a Government servant for the same house or
for another house at the same station, or at any other station.

A second advance may, however, be granted to a Government servant for the


construction of a house in Islamabad provided he has fully repaid the advance previously
drawn from the Government with interest thereon.

Note.1. - The full advance will be admissible only to those who are less than 47
years of age in the case of former superior service Government servants and 38 years of
age in the case of former Class IV Government servants on the date of the repayment of
the first installment of the advance. In the case of those former superior service
Government servants who are above the age of 47 years and those former Class IV
Government servants who are above the age of 38 years the amount of the advance
should be reduced so much as would enable the recovery at the rate of not more than 1/4th
of the Government servants pay in any one month of the total amount advanced including
interest, possible before the retirement of the Government servant. For instance, a former
superior service Government servant who is 55 years of age on the date on which
recovery of the advance is to commence, should get a house building advance equal to
his 15 months pay (1/4 x 60, ; i.e., the number of months for which the Government
servant has still to serve).

11
Note.2. - The advances may be revised on the request of the Government servants
concerned subject to the following conditions:-

(i) The increase in pay other wise then by accrual of time scale increments is
not less than 20%.

(ii) The net amount payable against the revised sanction be arrived at after the
adjustment of any amount drawn against the original sanction, whether
that amount, or any portion thereof, has been repaid or not.

(iii) The installments of recovery shall be refixed so as to recover the total


amount minus the amount already repaid within the maximum period
originally prescribed.

(iv) The revision will be admissible only if the event entitling the Government
servant for the revision of the advance takes place within a period of 12
months prescribed or the completion of house from the date of the drawal
of the first instalment of advance for construction, as distinct from the
instalment for development charges.

(v) The revision will not be allowed, if the house has been completed and
occupied by any one.

(vi) If the mortgage deed already executed and registered stands for the
advance originally sanctioned, the mortgagor may be required to execute a
new separate deed in form G.F.R. 34. The new deed should also be
registered under the Registration Act.

(v) Advances will be recovered by the deduction of monthly


instalments of not less than 20% of the pay of the Government servant

12
concerned from his pay bills. In the case of those who at the time of the
repayment of the first instalment of the advance are more than 47|38
years of age, the rate of recovery will be such higher rate than 20% of
pay as would enable the recovery of the principal together with interest
possible before the retirement of the officer. The authority sanctioning
an advance may permit recover to be made in a smaller number of
instalments, if the officer receiving the advance so desires. The amount
of interest will be recovered in one or more instalments, each such
instalment being not appreciably greater than the instalments by which
the principal was recovered.

The recovery of interest will commence from the month following that in which the
whole of the principal has been repaid.

Note 1. - The amount of the advance to be recovered monthly should be fixed in


whole of a rupee, should be recovered.

Note 2. - The instalments should be recovered in cash during the periods of leave
without pay. If the Government servant fails to pay any such instalments in cash, the
arrears of instalments falling due during period of leave without pay should be recovered
in lump sum from the first payment of pay or allowances which may become due to the
Government servant at the end of that leave.

(vi) In order to secure Government from loss consequent on a Government


servant dying or quitting the service before complete repayment of the advance with
interest accrued thereon, the house so built together with the land it stands upon must be
mortgaged to Government, by whom the mortgage will be released on liquidation of the
full amount due.

Note. - The mortgage bond will be prepared in form G.F.R. 23 and the
reconveyance in form G.F.R. 24.

13
(vii) The officer must satisfy the sanctioning authority regarding his title to the
land upon which the house is or is proposed to be built.

Note 1. - This rule does not preclude the grant of an advance to a person who does
not possess full proprietary rights in the land upon which he intends to build, provided the
sanctioning authority is satisfied that the applicant has a lease of which the unexpired
portion is of a term and value sufficient to justify the grant of the advance, and that there
is no danger of the lease lapsing or of Government being unable to dispose of it, should it
become necessary to foreclose the mortgage. In examining the mortgagor’s title care
should be taken to see that the lease does not prevent any sub demise by the lessee (the
mortgagor). The mortgage bond in such cases will be prepared in form G.F.R.25.

In cases in which ground rent, municipal taxes and similar dues are payable to
local authorities on account of land taken on lease, the sanctioning authority may, at its
discretion ask the Government servant taking the advance to produce for inspection
receipts for these payments within fifteen days of their falling due. If the sanctioning
authority finds that such dues have not been paid by the borrower steps may be taken to
recover the said dues including interest thereon, if any, from the pay of the Government
servant concerned for payment to the parties concerned.

No.2. - The applicant’s title to the property should be examined by the sanctioning
authority before the advance is actually paid, and in cases where there is any doubt as to
the validity of that title, the Revenue and Registration authorities or if technical legal
advice is necessary, the Law Officers of Government should be consulted. It should be
seen that he has undisputed title to the land on which it is proposed to build and that there
will be no legal obstacle to the properly being mortgaged to Government; and that
Government will have the right of foreclosing on the conditions mentioned in the
mortgage bond.
No.3. - This rules does not also preclude the grant of advances for the purpose of
building houses on plots of land taken on lease from Government in Nazimabad, Karak.

14
The grant of an advance in such cases is, however, subject to the condition that the
applicant executes an agreement in form G.F.R.26. Advances sanctioned under this note
will be made in instalments.

Note.4. - The Heads of the Office in the case of a non-gazetted Government servant
and the Controlling Officer in the case of a gazetted Government servant should when
asking for the authority for payment, send to the principal Auditor concerned a certificate
either in the bill in which the advance is drawn, or separately, to the effect that the
mortgage bond in Form G.F.R.23/25 has been executed by the Government servant
taking the advance and that it has been duly registered.

Note.5. - This rule does not preclude the grant of advance for the purpose of
building houses on plots of land acquired in Karachi through the co-operative housing
societies registered under the Bombay Co-operative Societies Act, 1925 even though in
such cases the Government servant concerned becomes entitled to a lease of 99 or 50
years only on the completion of the house on the plot allotted. The grant of the advance
will be subject to the condition that the Government servant shall not acquire land from
the societies concerned on such terms and conditions as will prevent him from alienating
the land.

Advances on account of development charges will be allowed when the societies


demand these charges from the Government servant concerned. At the time of the drawal
of such advances the Government servant must sign an agreement in Form G.F.R.27. He
should be required, as soon as it is possible for the societies to allot the land to him, to
produce original documents showing that the land has actually been allotted to him.
When he has been allotted land and wishes to draw further advances for the construction
of a house, advance will be allowed up to a maximum of 50% of the total house building
advance sanctioned in his case. At the time of drawal of this instalment he must be called
upon to execute an agreement in Form G.F.R.31. This instalment is intended to enable
him to start building the house and to complete at least the plinth. As soon as practicable
and in any case, not later than three months from the date of the drawal of this instalment,

15
he must produce a certificate from the Executive Engineer appointed by the Government
for the purpose to the effect that the plinth has been finished. Thereafter, he should be
asked to execute a mortgage deed in Form G.F.R. 25. Further instalment will be allowed
on the fulfillment of the above conditions.

Note.6. - Advances may also be given where considered necessary for the purchase
of land on which to construct a house, if the other condition laid down in this paragraph
are satisfied and the total amount of the advance for the purchase or leasing of the land
and the construction of the house does not exceed 24 months pay of the officer
concerned.

The Government servant should sign an agreement in form G.F.R.28 at the time
of taking an advance for the purchase of land and the amount should not exceed what is
required for the purpose. A mortgage deed in Form G.F.R. 29 should be executed before
any further advance is drawn for the purpose of constructing the house. The mortgage
deed must be registered within 4 months of its execution.

The Government servants who acquire land on lease, should sign an agreement in
form G.F.R.27 at the time of taking an advance for the leasing of the mortgage deed in
form G.F.R. 25 should be executed before any further advance is drawn for the purpose
of constructing the house.

The mortgage deed must be registered within 4 months of its execution.

In order to save Government from loss, the applicant’s title to the property should
be carefully examined by the sanctioning authority and all instructions should be
followed.

(viii) deleted.

16
(ix) Applications for advances must be made through the
applicant’s departmental superior, who will record his opinion as to the
necessity for the assistance solicited. The applicant must certify that the
sum is to be expended in building only, and pledge himself that, should
there be any surplus funds after the house is completed, they will be at
once refunded to Government.

must specify the original amount of such advance, the amount repaid and the balance
together with interest accrued.

conditions :-

17
(d) In cases where the official has already acquired the land for construction
of the house, he should mortgage it to the Government together with the
house to be built thereon, before the advance is sanctioned;

(e) In cases where the advance is required for the purpose of land, the first

Building Society; Improvement Trust; C.D.A., etc; that the land has been
allotted to him and the price should be indicated as also the instalment that
