JASIN, April 21 – The People’s Housing Programme (PPR) reflects the concern of the government to assist residents in the lower household income group ( B40), said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He said this was evident when the government led by the Barisan Nasional (BN) provided quality and affordable houses through the programme and at the same time expanded the assets and wealth of the people.
“In this form of visible asset, the programme gives the most effective impact…that it is why we see the project assisting the B40 group, more so under our special rent and buy concept.
“We will rent every unit and the rent will be taken into consideration as instalments to purchase the house in future. The rental is RM205 a month with RM50 as management charge. Look at the market, where can one find such a house?,” he said when speaking at a key handing-over ceremony for the Tehel PPR in Bemban here today.
Also present were Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron, Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister Tan Sri Noh Omar, and Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Deputy Minister Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique.
