Generally the staff quarters not just government, but even by private sector organisations are first given the basic requirements of its employees to have an accommodation. Depending on the place, the project etc there may be different types of accommodation like sharing, bachelor accommodation, family accommodation etc. If the quarters are not sufficient to give to all employees, there can be some sharing accommodation. Then there can be categories like Type I,II etc. The nomenclature may change.
The types may vary in number of rooms or area of rooms, apartments or villa types etc.
I was staying in a government allotted quarters during my early stages of my career. . According to my designation then,I was allotted a one BHK flat. Water connection, electricity connection etc are provided. The maintenance of the building and other main fixtures will be done by the employer organisation and we have to pay the consumption charges of electricity etc. Water charges may be deducted as a minimum uniformly or may be free. The daily managing of such matters and affairs may be done either by the supervisor employee appointed by the organisation or by a small committee of the employees elected or selected from among them.
As the place was an interior and isolated place and we had to work in round-the-clock shifts, buses were provided to and from the project site to quarters. The same buses were also sent to the nearest railway station to pick people coming to the project and/or allowing shopping for the quarters people. As there was another organisation also in that area adjacent to our quarters, for the combined use of both organisation employees there was a central school, a hospital and a recreation club. (The quarters was about 5 km from nearest railway station. Only very few trains stopped there. The work site was about nine kilometres away from the quarters also near sea cost.)
In a later occasion, working in another organisation, we were provided furnished accommodation.
So it all depends on the area,the number of employees and families residing, the proximity or difficulty of the area to the normal faculties etc. Some projects quarters are designed as self sufficient townships. Others will be having just houses only as the place will be having all other facilities easily available.
