Check low-cost housing abuse 01/01/2001 NST
HOUSING for the lower income groups has always been given top priority by the Government. While the higher income earner is better placed to buy a house - often the only consideration is whether he can afford a big or small one - the poor, in most cases can only dream about it. However, to forge a harmonious and equitable society low income earners deserve decent houses for their families. The solution therefore is to build low-cost houses which are within the means of the poorer sections of society. This is what the Government has set out to do. But problems will arise in low- cost housing programmes if these houses do not always go to the designated group of people and are instead diverted to those who, by virtue of their higher income, do not qualify for them. This defeats the Government's objective to provide housing for the poor and needy. The Johor Government's plans, announced last week, to review its policy on the distribution of low-cost houses to check abuses and to ensure that only eligible low-income earners get them is certainly a step in the right direction. State Consumer Affairs, Domestic Trade and Housing Committee chairman Abdul Samat Aripin said the Johor Government would be introducing a new system this year in which all applicants for low and medium-cost houses would be issued with eligibility certificates for three months to enable them to contact developers to buy houses costing less than RM80,000 in the locality of their choice. These certificates will be renewed until they get the houses or they have changed their mind about buying. In view of the many applicants for low-cost houses, another thing that could be done to ensure fairness in allocation is to allow applicants to draw lots in the allocation process. Even though Johor has unveiled new measures to curb abuses in low-cost housing distribution, the problem of abuses in low-cost housing is not confined to Johor alone as these have also been detected in other States as well. It is therefore a national problem. The Johor experience has highlighted the need for measures to be adopted to ensure low-cost houses are distributed equitably and that there are no loopholes to impede a fair allocation.
