2. Since the retention / allotment of Government accommodation is allowed for bonafide use of the dependent family of the transferred government servant, he/she will furnish a certificate on 1st July and 1st January of every year, stating that his/her dependent family members are actually residing in the Government accommodation at the last place of posting.
