Online system now allows for home renovation applications

PROPERTY owners in Kuala Lumpur planning on doing home renovations must submit their applications via the Kuala Lumpur Integrated Submission (KLIS) system.

Successful applicants will receive the relevant documents such as approval for building and engineering plans, as well as Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) via the platform.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah said this was to expedite the review and issuance of permits for small-scale projects (B2).

“With KLIS, applications can be processed without much delay.

“The officers in charge of reviewing the applications can also work remotely,” he said.

B2 projects refer to the renovation of houses involving a floor space of below 100sq metres, as well as roofs or walls, not exceeding 50% of the original dimension.

Mahadi said the use of KLIS for such projects would generate more revenue in terms of assessment tax for Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

“An expanded floor space will translate into higher tax,” he said, adding that DBKL would train employees to operate KLIS.

The mayor was speaking during a ceremony to launch KLIS for small-scale projects at the Kuala Lumpur Library in Jalan Raja.

Also present were Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim and ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Rosida Jaafar.

Shahidan said KLIS had received 1,276 applications for B2 projects since it came into effect on Oct 1.

“Out of this figure, 119 have already received their CCC.

“KLIS’ scope will be expanded in phases to include medium- and large-scale projects by the end of 2022,” he said, adding that the system had more than halved the application processing time.

The minister said KLIS was part of DBKL’s efforts to digitalise its services for the convenience of city folk.

KLIS was introduced on Jan 15, 2019, to receive applications for development projects involving bungalows, terrace and link houses.

It aims to cut down on bureaucracy and eliminate paperwork, as well as hinder potential power abuse in the approval process. — By FARID WAHAB
