HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội administration will revoke the State-owned houses from civil servants who are found to be misusing the facilities.

It was part of a programme that recently got the greenlight from Nguyễn Đức Chung, chairman of the capital People’s Committee, aiming to implement thrift and anti-waste work this year, the Tuổi trẻ (Youth) newspaper reported.

State-owned houses are allotted to public officials, usually leaders of State, Government, ministries and agencies when they are assigned to certain posts or missions.

Chung has ordered the authorised agencies to reclaim State-owned houses from those who have retired and are misusing the accommodation.

Following the programme, Chung also asked State-owned agencies to return old buildings to the city after they have moved to new buildings. They are not allowed to lease the old buildings or give them to other agencies.

Additionally, the budget for buying State-owned cars this year was fixed, and it will not be increased, he said.

Chung said ground-breaking and opening ceremonies for public works this year would be done away with to save money.

All units under the city administration were told to conduct additional foreign business trips only if they were really necessary, he added. — VNS
