Over 130,000 affordable homes built through 76 projects — MB

KAJANG, June 25 — The state government has approved the construction for 130,545 units of Rumah Selangorku Idaman and Rumah Selangorku Harapan through 76 projects.

Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said of the total, 78,132 units are Rumah Selangor Idamanku which are constructed through 31 projects while the remaining are Rumah Selangorku Harapan.

“Over 126,000 units from the two housing packages are offered to the public and the balance is handed over to the state government for the implementation of the Rent-to-Own Smart Scheme (2Stay).

“We are happy that we have succeeded in proving that the Selangor government is not only able to plan but could also implement it well even though we were faced with various constraints due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other challenges.

“Indeed, this has given relief to the developers aside from providing more opportunities (for the people) to own quality and comfortable homes. We are on the right track and we believe that more units will be handed over to the buyers next year,” he said at a press conference after handing over house keys to 10 Rumah Idaman buyers at Pangsapuri Idaman Abadi Kajang 2 in Semenyih, here yesterday.

Also present during the event were state executive councillor for housing Rodziah Ismail and Permodalan Negeri Selangor Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Salim.

Meanwhile, Amirudin added that the Selangor Housing and Property Board (LPHS) will monitor the project from time to time to ensure it could be completed on time.

“LPHS has its own monitoring system and they need to report on it regularly. The price control and construction of affordable homes are also being monitored.

“This means not all houses are (built) according to the Harapan and Idaman scheme, as some still follow the Rumah Selangorku 2.0 types such as A, B, C, D, and E,” he said.
