RUMAWIP (Rumah Mampu Milik Wilayah Persekutuan) is launched on March 28, 2013. During GE 13, Pakatan Harapan won the election and renamed it to Residensi Wilayah on 13 May 2019, with a new size requirement of “Minimum 900 square feet” imposed by then Federal Territories (FT) Minister Khalid Abdul Samad. After the Sheraton Move, the name remain the same till Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob is elected Prime Minister and made “Residensi Wilayah Keluarga Malaysia” the new name for this project. Now that Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim is the new Prime Minister, the Kementerian Wilayah Persekutuan, which manages this affordable housing scheme, has been replaced by Jabatan Wilayah Persekutuan, led by Datuk Seri Rosida Jaafar, who reports directly to the Prime Minister’s department. The name of this affordable housing program is rebranded back to “Residensi Wilayah“.
Will the minimum size requirement of 900 square feet be made mandatory again?
