Negri govt allocates RM1.41mil grant to JMB

SEREMBAN: The Negeri Sembilan government has allocated a grant, amounting to RM1.41mil, under the state Budget 2022 new initiatives, to the Joint Management Body (JMB) or Management Corporation (MC) statewide, to carry out various activities involving low-cost strata housing units.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun said the allocation provided as a 'one-off', amounting to RM5,000, involving 282 low-cost strata schemes throughout the state.

"The problem that often plagues stratified housing schemes is JMB's failure to play its role in managing and maintaining common property properly.

"This refers to the reluctance of residents to hold positions in the JMB, the problem of arrears of maintenance fees among residents, vandalism of common property and the hands-off attitude of developers at the JMB management level,” he told reporters after the grant presentation to the JMB or MC here on Monday (July 25).

Aminuddin said the Commissioner of Building (COB) of the Seremban City Council (MBS) is also actively raising awareness to the general public, especially residents in stratified housing schemes, about the importance of the formation or establishment of JMB.

He added that MBS constantly monitors the establishment of JMB for stratified housing schemes under its purview, through the sharing of new stratified development scheme data from the Valuation and Property Management Department and receiving complaints periodically.

At the event today, a total of 113 low-cost strata schemes, involving administrative areas under MBS, received allocations totalling RM565,000. - Bernama
