(a) to (d): In accordance with General Provident Fund (Central Services) Rules 1960, withdrawal by a Government Employee up to 90% of the amount standing at credit in the General Provident Fund is permissible for building or acquiring a suitable house or a ready built flat for his/her residence.

As per the existing rules and instructions, if a Government servant has already availed withdrawal from GPF for building or acquiring a house or flat, GPF withdrawal for second house is not permissible.

There is, at present, no proposal to amend the GPF Rules to allow a second withdrawal for acquiring another house.
