On August 1, 2016 the Supreme Court held that the former Chief Ministers are not entitled for government accommodation for lifetime.  The verdict was pronounced by a bench headed by Justice Mr. Anil R Dave.  The bench pronounced its verdict on a 2004 plea filed by a UP- based NGO Lok Prahari, which had sought a direction against allotment of government bungalows to Ex-CM’s and other “non eligible” organizations. The Supreme Court said any such government accommodation should be vacated within two to three months.  The bench also stated that the Ex-CM’s don’t have the right to occupy government accommodation for lifetime.
