PPR tenants must fulfill their responsibility to pay maintenance fees – Kor Ming

By Zaki Salleh

IPOH: All tenants of the People’s Housing Program (PPR) nationwide, especially in the state of Perak, are reminded to fulfill their responsibilities as residents.

Firstly, do not damage the public property provided in the housing areas, and secondly, make the monthly maintenance payments.

This reminder was voiced by the Minister of Housing and Local Government, Nga Kor Ming, who wants PPR residents to help the government in return for the facilities they receive.

He mentioned that PPR residents benefit from living in houses offered at low and affordable prices.

For example, PPR flats under the management of the Ipoh City Council (MBI) only charge a rent of RM124 per month.

“We also ask residents to please pay the monthly maintenance fees. Residents need to fulfill their responsibilities.

“They need to be fair to themselves and the community that also pays the monthly maintenance fees.

“For instance, MBI flats only charge a rent of RM124 per month, which is very low. Don’t be irresponsible tenants,” he emphasized.

PPR is an initiative under the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT) to address housing issues for low-income groups.

It consists of two categories: PPR Owned or PPR Rental.

According to Kor Ming, this year KPKT has approved an allocation of RM100 million to upgrade new elevator facilities in PPRs nationwide.

He mentioned that the Seri Kepayang flats on Jalan Hospital here will also receive the allocation for new elevators.

“Once these facilities are provided, residents must avoid vandalism.

“I emphasize, do not damage, do not urinate in the elevators and do not litter in the elevators.

“Residents are responsible for taking care of these facilities. If this cannot be done, I might instruct the authorities to install CCTV cameras in the elevators,” he stated.
