May 20th, 2012 · No Comments

KUALA LUMPUR: Starting today, about 7,000 public housing tenants in the federal capital will obtain offer letters under the People’s Housing Programme of the National Economic Action Council and Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur Public Housing.

Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin explained that the offer letters would be sent directly to their homes though the initiative undertaken by the DBKL Housing Department.

He said those who been given offer letters have one  month to reply to the said letter in the event that they accepted  the offer to buy the Malaysia property houses since the purchasing process would take between three and six months.

“We will not force them to accept the offer letter,” he told reporters after opening the Federal Territory 2011 Excellent Students Awards here yesterday.

The financing scheme was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Jan 28 to give a hand to the lower-income group presently renting units of People Public Housing and DBKL public housing to secure a loan to procure the units they are currently residing.

According to Raja Nong Chik, the 7,000 involved were the first group of tenants under the first phase of the loan from the Employees Provident Fund totalling RM300mil.

Previously, he offered the Federal Territory Caring Scheme payment of RM2,500 each to the first 20 recipients.

At the ceremony, he also presented certificates of appreciation and cash to 320 excellent students of Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR), Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR), Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) in Kuala Lumpur.

Meanwhile, Federal Territory Foundation executive director Datuk Mohd Idris Mohd Isa said all the students were selected by the Federal Territory Education Depart-ment, community leaders and schools.

He said for Labuan Federal Territory, 54 excellent students in PMR and SPM would be given similar incentives today.

He said about RM600,000 had been allocated for the program for  this year.
