the ministry said on thursday that the details in this regard had been communicated to the lok sabha secretariat for making the actual allotment of rooms to the newly-elected mps. a majority of the members of the new lok sabha are first-time members of the use.

the former mps and union ministers who were members of the 15th lok sabha and could not get re-elected to the 16th lok sabha are entitled for retention of their existing government accommodation for a period of one month only from the date of dissolution of the 15th lok sabha or demission of office by the union ministers.

president pranab mukherjee dissolved the 15th lok sabha on may 18 on the advice of the union cabinet headed by outgoing prime minister manmohan singh after the united progressive alliance government was routed in the elections and the bharatiya janata party-led national democratic alliance was voted to power with an overwhelming majority. singh had submitted his resignation and that of his council of ministers on may 17 and the president has asked them to continue in office until a new government is in place.
