The apartment complex needs to be within a five km radius of the legislative assembly building, and the period of accommodation will be two years.
The Pamba block of the MLA hostel is at present in a bad condition and needs to be revamped.
The legislative assembly secretariat has laid down a set of conditions in the EoIs notification. It states that all rooms need to be fully furnished and visitors shall be allowed to the apartment complex. Resting rooms for assembly staff and security staff deployed for the service of MLAs in the apartment complex needs to be arranged. The assembly secretariat will take care of rent, water and power charges.
The provision of maintenance fee payment is not mentioned in the EoIs notification. Given the high rent rates in areas around the assembly complex, the authorities will have to shell out a sizable sum for a period of two years. The officials said the drawings by PWD for the reconstruction of Pamba block have been completed and an estimate is being prepared for the reconstruction works.
As per the EoI notification, each apartment should have two bath attached rooms, an office room, a dining hall, a kitchen, and a common bath room.
