KPKT announces construction of PPR Bestari Jaya, resolving housing issues for five estates in Selangor since 1998

KUALA SELANGOR: The Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT) today announced the construction of the Bestari Jaya People’s Housing Project (PPR) to address the housing issues faced by 245 families of rubber estate settlers in five estates in this district since 1998.

Its Minister, Nga Kor Ming, said the RM75 million project, expected to be completed within two years, is built on 8.09 hectares of land at Lot 25, Sungai Tinggi Estate, here through a collaboration between the Selangor state government and Berjaya Corporation Berhad, which provided the land for free.

He said PR1MA Corporation Malaysia was appointed as the implementing agency for the PPR project, which involves the construction of terrace houses with an area of ​​1,200 square feet equipped with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

“The issue of home ownership involving five estates, namely Ladang Mary, Ladang Nigel Garder, Ladang Bukit Tagar, Ladang Sungai Tinggi, and Ladang Minyak, has been ongoing for almost 26 years since 1998.

“As a result of discussions between the MADANI Government and the Selangor state government, we agreed to develop housing for the involved estate workers, which is expected to benefit a total of 1,250 residents,” he said at a media briefing on the resolution of housing issues for five estates in Selangor today.

Nga said the PPR Bestari Jaya would be named PPR Harmoni Madani upon completion to reflect the spirit of unity among races and harmony as the key to the nation’s success.

Meanwhile, he said 202 PPR projects involving 115,039 housing units have been completed nationwide since 1998 until this year.

Nga said during the same period, the federal government was also implementing the construction of 19 projects involving 7,517 housing units, with the development of 6,006 housing units at the discussion stage.

“The total financial commitment provided by the federal government for this program amounts to RM12 billion,” he said.
