HULU SELANGOR: The Human Resources Ministry has proposed a RM50 million allocation for plantation workers to apply for loans to buy houses under the 10th Malaysia Plan (RMK-10) said its deputy minister Datuk Maznah Mazlan.
Once approved, the ministry can provide loans for plantation workers to apply for loans to buy houses in their estates or at housing estates.
"The ministry has already forwarded the proposal to the government for consideration under RMK-10. Currently, estate workers have to source for other financial resources to buy houses," said Maznah in a statement here on Friday, April 23.
"Employers have been urged to build comfortable houses for their workers by 2013, with three bedrooms and a bathroom. Some employers have upgraded or refurbished workers' houses while some have build new ones for them," she said.
Maznah said the government had also urged employers to provide clean piped water, electricity and roads in estates.
She added that the government has also taken initiatives through the plantation community development project to provide pipes for water supply while the employers would be required to connect the pipes to the houses of estate workers.
"This project is being carried out in stages throughout the country," she said.-- Bernama
