SUNGAI PETANI, Jan 17 2017 : Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today announced two policy changes to enable more people to own a house under the 1Malaysia People’s Housing (PR1MA) programme.

Najib said the two changes to the PR1MA policy were raising the household income eligibility from RM10,000 to RM15,000, and shortening the moratorium on house sale and rental from 10 years to five years.

“The eligibility income level increase to RM15,000 is to enable more people to own a PR1MA house, apart from the measure of shortening the moratorium period.

“These are all measures taken by the government which is very committed to enabling people, especially the target group, to own a PR1MA house,” he said at a press conference after a PR1MA@Kedah Community celebration event at PR1MA Residency Puteri Jaya 1, here, today.

Also present were the prime minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah, Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim and PR1MA chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Mutalib Alias. – Bernama
