Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor Sdn Bhd (KPRJ) introduced ‘Rumah Mesra Rakyat Johor’ (RMRJ) project which is a scheme to assist those who wish to build a low-cost house on their own available land piece in Johor.
The project costs RM20 million to cater approximately 3000 house units, where 500 units will be built this year, followed by 1000 units for next year, and remaining 1500 units by 2018.
“We need effective efforts in offering subsidies to assist and ease the rakyat’s burden especially for the middle and lower classes. RMRJ development focuses on middle and lower classes in urban areas and also in rural areas across the state,” said State Executive Council for Housing and Local Government, Datuk Abd Latif Bandi during the pre-launch of RMRJ project in Kota Iskandar recently.
KPRJ will offer three type of houses that comes in two different designs each (Type A, B, and C) that provides spaces up to 750 sqft, 850 sqft, and 1000 sqft at a price of RM64,000, RM72,500, and RM85,000 respectively.
“We are trying to coincide all applications between Rumah Mampu Milik Johor (RMMJ), Perumahan Rakyat 1Malaysia (PR1MA), and Rumah Mesra Rakyat Johor (RMRJ) so that there will be no overlaps of application. The state government also targets to build 60,000 units of RMMJ by 2020 and if the responses are good, the state government will consider increasing the number of units in the upcoming years,” he added.
