Medical posts will also function on round the clock basis in Parliament House and Western Court, she added.
According to Shrivastava, returning officers in all parliamentary constituencies had already been informed about the arrangements being made by the Lok Sabha Secretariat for the newly-elected members in respect of transit accommodation, telephone facilities, and their other preliminary requirements.
