Ramai sokong naik had keluar caruman 25/12/1991 BH
KUALA LUMPUR, Selasa - Pelbagai pihak mengalu-alukan keputusan kerajaan menaikkan had maksimum mengeluarkan caruman Kumpulan Wang Simpanan Pekerja (KWSP) sebanyak 100 peratus, iaitu daripada $20,000 kepada $40,000 bagi pembelian rumah kos sederhana dan tinggi, mulai 1 Januari depan. Mereka menyifatkan langkah itu sebagai wajar memandangkan rumah adalah keperluan asas masyarakat.

Memenuhi keperluan rumah rakyat 25/12/1991 BH
PENGUMUMAN Menteri Kewangan, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, mengenai had maksimum baru mengeluarkan caruman Kumpulan Wang Simpanan Pekerja (KWSP) bagi pembelian rumah, melegakan pencarum, khususnya mereka yang memang sedang merancang membeli rumah. Kenaikan had maksimum sebanyak 100 peratus bagi pembelian rumah kos sederhana dan tinggi serta penarikan balik larangan mengeluarkan 10 peratus caruman bagi yang mendapat pinjaman 100 peratus untuk pembelian rumah kos rendah, berkuatkuasa 1 Januari depan, bermakna kuasa membeli rumah semakin meningkat. Kalau sekarang pencarum hanya boleh mengeluarkan tidak melebihi $20,000 tetapi mulai bulan depan, had berkenaan dinaikkan sehingga $40,000. Ini bermakna, pencarum boleh menggunakan lebih banyak simpanan dalam KWSP dan mengurangkan pinjaman pembelian rumah. Ini secara langsung mengurangkan beban pencarum untuk membuat bayaran bulanan. Dengan itu, pencarum kini mempunyai pilihan untuk membeli rumah yang lebih selesa kerana boleh mengeluarkan lebih banyak caruman untuk membuat bayaran pendahuluan pembelian rumah kos sederhana atau tinggi. Had maksimum sebelum ini, iaitu $20,000 tidak banyak membantu pencarum, tambahan pula pembeli rumah umumnya berumur dalam lingkungan 30-an. Dengan kata lain, tempoh bayaran balik pinjaman agak pendek dan sudah pasti bayaran bulanannya tinggi. Mengambil kira keadaan ini dan jangkaan harga hartanah akan terus meningkat pada masa akan datang, kita berpendapat keputusan kerajaan menaikkan had maksimum berkenaan adalah wajar dan kena pada masanya. Kenaikan itu menggambarkan kepekaan kerajaan terhadap masalah rakyat untuk memiliki rumah sendiri.
