News: Lower Maintenance Rates for Government Staff Housing Schemes in Putrajaya

May 17, 2018

 
Maintenance rates for government staff housing schemes in Putrajaya has been reduced to 15.8 sen from 20 sen per sq ft, announced Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa.

With this, residents can expect a reduction of RM35 to RM51 in their maintenance bills, depending on the size of their housing unit, reported The Star.

Residents at three government housing projects – Larai in Precinct 6, Palma in Precinct 11 and Selasih in Precinct 17 – are even exempted from paying sinking fund fees and maintenance charges from 1 March to 31 August.

This comes as the almost RM3.7 million maintenance cost will be borne by the government, said Ali at the launch of the Kenanga and Cempaka 1Malaysia Civil Servants Housing Programme (PPA1M) project in Precinct 19.

He revealed that 50 percent of the units at the high-rise project, which is set to be ready by 2021, will be reserved for the police.

With units priced from RM100,000 to RM300,000, the development features facilities such as a playground, multipurpose hall, commercial lots, nursery, surau and one parking bay per unit.

A joint-venture between Protasco Development and Koperasi Polis Diraja Malaysia Berhad subsidiary, Kop Mantap, the project also sees a government subsidy of RM30,000 to RM100,000 per unit.

Under the government staff housing schemes, home buyers are required to pay a 10 percent downpayment, with the remaining amount to be paid upon the completion of the project.

Of the 200,000 government staff housing units targeted to be built nationwide, 7,180 have already been completed and 81,503 are in various stages of construction.

Over in Putrajaya, 5,216 are still under construction and another 2,492 are in the planning stage.
