FT Minister: 80,000 units of RUMAWIP achievable this year
PUTRAJAYA (Feb 1): The target of developing 80,000 homes for the Federal Territories Affordable Housing (RUMAWIP) programme can be achieved this year, Bernama reported Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor as saying yesterday.
This is ahead of the planned deadline of 2020.
Tengku Adnan revealed that more than 80% of the target had been achieved in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan in the “ready”, “under construction” and “development order” categories.
Seven projects in Kuala Lumpur and three in Labuan had been completed, with each comprising 3,662 units and 332 units respectively, Bernama reported him telling the media at his ministry in conjunction with the 2018 Federal Territories Day.
“There are 27 projects still open to residents in the Federal Territories and applications can be made at the RUMAWIP portal with a loan facility provided by the Federal Territories Foundation,” he said.
Tengku Adnan said the RUMAWIP scheme ensures that developers did not arbitrarily sell homes at unreasonable prices when RUMAWIP homes, equipped with basic amenities and a conducive environment, were priced at RM300,000 and below.
RUMAWIP homes are targeted at both the low- and middle-income groups in the Federal Territories (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan).
