Low-cost buyers still waiting after 18 year
04/04/2005 The Malay Mail

SLIM RIVER: After 18 years waiting for their low-cost housing units at the Bandar Baru Slim River here, 156 purchasers are wondering whether the Perak Government will keep its promise to give them alternative land or new homes.

The buyers' action committee chairman, P. Simon, said yesterday that they had been left in the cold since 2001 when the State Government offered them 10 per cent discount on a new housing scheme near the Proton City in Tanjung Malim.

"We were given two choices - either to take up the discount offer or a piece of land for us to a build house. Since then, we've not heard anything," he said.

The buyers were getting frustrated as many of them were low-income earners, including plantation workers and Government servants, Simon said, adding that about 20 of them had died without seeing any compensation.

They paid a total of RM2 million in 1987 to the developer for the units which were priced between RM25,000 and RM31,000 each but the project was abandoned a year later.

The Federal Government then asked the Perak Government to find a solution to the problem faced by the buyers. - Bernama
