New homes for 150 buyers
25/05/2005 The Sun

IPOH: The Perak government has set aside houses near Proton City in Tanjung Malim for more than 150 buyers left in the lurch after they paid RM2 million for low-cost houses in a scheme in Slim River 18 years ago.

State executive councilor and Perak MIC chairman Datuk G. Rajoo said yesterday the buyers would be given a 10% discount to buy the houses, priced at RM35;000 each.

He said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Tajol Rosli Ghazali had promised in 2001 that the state government would give the discounts on humanitarian ground.

"The houses are 40 % completed, we will call them soon to make the necessary arrangement," Rajoo said.  "They don't need to pay any down payment but must arrange for their own bank loan."

He said the buyers could contact the state government or Behrang state assemblyman Datuk K. R. Naidu for further details.

On Monday; the buyers spokesman, B. Subramaniam; appealed to the state government for alternative and or new homes as they had been waiting for 18 years.

The buyers 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 late.

It was auctioned off in 1993 without the knowledge of the buyers and the Housing and Local Government Ministry, which was then making efforts to revive the project.

However; only 133 housing lots were auctioned off and 23 more, involving buyers who had obtained government loans were left un-touched.

The new developer then built houses costing more than RM60, 000 and sold them to new purchasers.

The matter was referred to the Attorney General's Chambers after it was raised in the weekly cabinet meeting in 1999.
