PARIT, 23 August: The household income limit of applicants for dwellings under the People’s Housing Programme (PPR) will be increased from RM2,500 to RM3,000.
Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Tan Sri Noh Omar said the new rate was proposed to be similar to that for the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M).
He said the proposal would be tabled at the Cabinet meeting next week to be discussed in detail.
“When the conditions are similar for BR1M recipients, it is easier for us to check on the eligibility of the applicants for PPR housing,” he told reporters after a ground-breaking ceremony at the Seri Iskandar PPR with Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir, here, today.
Among the conditions for BR1M is that the individual who is the household head must have a gross monthly income of RM4,000 and below.
