JOHOR BARU: The ongoing profiling programme on People's Housing Project (PPR) tenants will help the Johor government eradicate the issue of sub-letting, says state housing and local government committee chairman Datuk Mohd Jafni Md Shukor.

He said the programme was being carried out in the city's three areas – Johor Baru City Council (MBJB), Iskandar Puteri City Council (MBIP) and Pasir Gudang City Council (MBPG).

"The Johor Housing Development Corporation (PKPJ) is carrying out the programme involving 20 PPR residential buildings, including government-owned houses.

"It will take between four to five months to be completed before we can identify subletting issues," he said when met after launching the Gotong Royong PPR at PPR Kempas Permai, Tampoi, here on Sunday (July 3).

Mohd Jafni said that PPR and RSK usually had no problems because each had its own allocation from the Housing and Local Government Ministry.

"Our main concerns are high-rise residential buildings or strata properties managed by a joint management body (JMB).

"One of the issues that have been pointed out during the recent state assembly is the lack of repair and improvements made by JMBs.

"As it turns out, they only get about 40% of the payment for the common maintenance fund," he said.

There are 130 high-rise residential buildings in MBJB, MBIP, and MBPG managed by JMB.
