all the benefits, which are being made in the

House Rent Allowance (HRA) to the judicial

official accommodation which is allotted to the

Judicial Officers are likewise be free of charges

but no HRA will be payable for such and allotment

being made. If, however, the Government for any

reason, is unable to make allotment or make

available the official accommodation, then in


11

that event, the Judicial Officer would be

entitled to get HRA similar to that, which has

been as existing or as directed by the Hon’ble

Shetty Commission, whichever is higher.

Judicial Officers is to be made in view of the
