KUALA NERUS – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak today announced that Felda’s second generation settlers could now buy a house to call their own for between RM60,000 and RM70,000.
He said he had previously announced that houses priced at RM120,000 under the Second Generation Felda Housing Programme involving about 20,000 units, would now cost RM90,000.
“We will build more houses that cost RM60,000-RM70,000 in future; we will resize and redesign each unit from 1,100 sq ft to 850 sq ft; what is important is that it is affordable,” he said.
He said this while launching the national-level Felda Settlers Day 2015, themed, ‘Mensyukuri Nikmat’ at the indoor stadium at Gong Badak Sports Complex here.
He was confident that the target group would respond favourably to the new house price structure decided by the government to fulfill demand. – BERNAMA
