28 April, SELANGOR – The Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry will build 500 residential units under the People’s Housing Programme (PPR) in Sungai Yu here to help low-income earners in the area.
Minister Tan Sri Noh Omar said his ministry had approved a RM100 million allocation to build the houses which were expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
“The cost of constructing one PPR house is RM200,000 but we will sell it for only RM35,000.
“This means that the federal government has to bear the RM165,000 subsidy for each house,” he told reporters after the launch of the Sungai Yu PPR housing project today.
He said besides building the one-storey terrace houses, various basic amenities such as a community hall, a kindergarten as well as a nursery would also be built to enable the residents to live in a more conducive environment.
