KUALA LUMPUR (March 21): Pahang’s government has so far built 3,668 homes under the People's Housing Projects (PPR), Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob (pictured) revealed yesterday.

“All these projects provide convenience to the people especially those from the low income group so they can live in more comfortable homes,” Adnan said, Bernama reported yesterday.

The Pahang MB also revealed that 3,379 units have been occupied, while the rest were in the credit approval stage.

“Thus far there are several PPR projects are still under construction namely PPR Pelangai 2, Bentong; PPR Inderapura, PPR Beserah and PPR Pulau Manis in Kuantan; PPR Luit, Maran, and two more PPR projects that have been approved are PPR Pekan and PPR Tanjung Labu, Lipis,” Bernama reported Adnan as saying.

The PPR programme has been described by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as being among the biggest successes of Federal government.

Earlier this month, Najib said the Federal government had completed 83,759 housing units through 120 PPR projects.

Najib said the PPR homes were sold at much lower prices than the market, but their quality were similar to those built by private developers.
