More Than 1,000 Housing Units Under Construction

KUALA LUMPUR: Dewan Rakyat was told today that 1,183 housing units under the national housing (RBN) programme were currently under construction at nine locations nationwide.

Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the number was to cater to part of the 1,675 applications received by the Federal Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority (Felcra).

He said the Rubber Industry Smallholders Development Authority (RISDA) had already approved 158 of the 1,626 RBN applications it had received to date.

"Eighty-one units are under construction while 16 have been completed," he said in his reply to Anuar Abd Manap (BN-Sekijang).
