SHAH ALAM: Joint Management Bodies (JMB) of low-cost flats which have been shortlisted to get subsidies for facelifts under the state scheme will have until March 7 to settle their payments.
The Caring Government for Residents’ Aid (Ceria) scheme, which offers low-cost flats a paint makeover, requires residents to pay 20 per cent of the cost for repainting, while the state government foots the rest of the bill.
State executive councillor Iskandar Samad said JMBs need to pay five per cent of the cost before painting works start and the other 15 per cent soon after in stages.
Iskandar, whose portfolio includes housing, said todate 26 flats under the second phase of the scheme have made the necessary payments while 27 others have yet to do so.
“If they face difficulties in paying the five per cent, they may seek assistance from the Selangor Housing and Property Board.”
JMBs which fail to meet the deadline will have to wait until the third phase of the scheme to get facelifts for their buildings.
The state is targeting to repaint 100 flats under Ceria.
Under the first phase, 18 flats were offered the makeover and 10 flats have been completed so far.
