Jakarta's disabled, elderly to be exempted from Rusun rents
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta administration is mulling over a plan to exempt elderly and disabled residents living in city-owned subsidized apartments (rusun) from monthly rents.
Jakarta Public Housing and Public Buildings Agency head Agustino Darmawan said he had proposed a revision of Gubernatorial Regulation No. 111/2014 on low-cost rental apartments to that effect.
"The prevailing regulation does not accommodate [such an exemption]," he said at City Hall on Thursday, as quoted by kompas.com.
He added that other changes were also planned as part of the revision, including to provide a grace period on rent payments for residents affected by evictions.
"The residents will be given a seven-month grace period, because they may still be looking for a job. That's our proposal," he said.
He added that a three-month grace period would also be given to Rusun residents whose apartments were renovated, so that they would be able to use the money for a temporary place of residence. (fac)
