Recently, the Union Cabinet cleared The Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorised Occupants) Amendment Bill, 2019, to facilitate speedy eviction of unauthorized government residence occupants. The proposed bill—which will be introduced in the current Parliament session—will impose a Rs. 10L fine for overstaying beyond five months.
