 1Malaysia Civil Servants' Housing Programme (PPA1M)

The Government has initiated a total of 100,000 houses which will be built under the 1Malaysia Civil Servant's Housing Program (PPA1M) nationwide.

A total of 100,000 houses will be built under the 1Malaysia Civil Servants' Housing Programme (PPA1M) nationwide, said Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa.

He said besides Putrajaya, the Government would identify strategic locations in the capital and major centres, including in Sabah and Sarawak, to expand the programme.

"The project will be implemented once it is approved by relevant authorities," he told reporters after opening the Parent Teacher Association Carnival and new facilities at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Damansara Utama here Sunday.

He was commenting on a call from Cuepacs to the federal and state governments to provide medium-cost houses, priced RM250,000 or below, for civil servants.

Ali said the first phase of the PPA1M programme involving the construction of 10,366 houses was launched in Putrajaya by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in April.

The PPA1M provides public housing with a minimum floor area of between 1,000 and 1,500 sq ft at a price of between RM150,000 and RM300,000.

Meanwhile, Ali said the Putrajaya PPA1M had received an encouraging response with 105,000 applications received to date.

Successful buyers are only required to pay for the houses once they are completed and not while work is still in progress. - Bernama
