KAJANG, May 2 — Selangor government approved construction for 80,650 units of Rumah Selangorku Idaman and Rumah Selangorku Harapan through 41 projects.
Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said of the total, more than 77,000 were offered to the public, while the rest was given to the state government for the implementation of the Rent-to-Own Smart Scheme (2Stay).
“By the end of this year, we expect to have another 900 units for the 2STAY scheme but with a capacity of less than 1,000 square feet.
“The state government will also use the fines imposed on developers who failed to sell Bumiputera units to build houses for the 2STAY scheme,” he said after the key handover ceremony for Rumah Selangorku Residensi Adelia here today.
Earlier, he had visited the Rumah Selangorku Idaman project site at Persiaran Tropicana near here.
Meanwhile, Amirudin said the approval for a housing project complete with facilities proved the state government are serious about helping the people to own homes.
He said in the next four years, the state government are confident of providing livable houses equipped with infrastructure for community use.
“So after this, we can discard the negative view on low-cost housing as having poor facilities, as well as scary and disappointing conditions,” he said.
In the 2021 Selangor Budget, Amirudin announced the allocation of RM20 million for the Smart Rental Scheme programme using the Bumiputera Quota Regulation Exemption Trust Fund.
