Govt to streamline quota, prices of affordable homes nationwide

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 1 — The government plans to streamline the quota and prices of affordable homes throughout the country, said the Deputy Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government, Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique.

She said her ministry was preparing a working paper for this purpose and would be presenting it to the National Housing Council.

“We want to streamline the quota and house prices determined by state governments through the State Housing Policy,” she told the media here after officiating the one-day, “The Malaysian Property Market: Opportunities Amidst Uncertainties”, seminar.

“At present, each state has different quotas and there are some who take this matter lightly.

“So, we will table a working paper to streamline both based on the house value proposed by the state governments under the quota determined for the construction of affordable homes,” she added. — Bernama
