“The two RSP projects were built under the Village Expansion Scheme (SPK) supervised by the Sarawak Land and Survey Department (LANDAS).


“The construction works of both projects started on Dec 14, 2019, and have now been fully completed, including providing paved road facilities.

“In addition, works to upgrade the drainage system and water reticulation system for both schemes are also expected to start this month,” he said in a statement today.

Each RSP unit is 850 square feet, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a parking space.

SPK Igan is located approximately 50km from Mukah town, while SPK Tian is located approximately 100km from Mukah town and 20km from Pekan Daro.

Housing financing is provided by Mutiara Mortgage & Credit Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of HDC, with loan rates as low as one per cent.

One of the successful applicants of RSP Igan, Marini Majapar, 34, expressed her gratitude after her dream of owning her own home came true after living with her parents for more than 30 years.

“Alhamdulillah, I am very grateful to the Sarawak government for providing the RSP program for low-income groups to own a house,” she said.

Meanwhile, RSP Tian applicant Asmahil Othman, 34, said the programme is a good initiative to help the B40 group, especially in rural areas.

“Apart from the strategic location of RSP Tian, which is close to basic facilities such as mosques, schools and other areas, the distance to work is also getting closer,” he said. ― DayakDaily
