Form body, residents and builder told

11/09/2008 The  Star By M. Sivanantha Sharma

THE developer of Taman Perai Indah Flats at Taman Nagasari, Prai, Piala Mutiara Sdn Bhd, and residents should set up a joint management body to resolve long-standing problems faced by residents of Block C.

Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy said the body should be set up in a month or two after the developer provided an audited account of income and expenditure on the maintenance of the nine-storey flats.

Dr Ramasamy, who is also Batu Kawan MP and Prai state assemblyman, was speaking to reporters after touring the block accompanied by officials and councillors from the Seberang Prai Municipal Council.

He was unhappy to see the condition of the flats which were poorly maintained where more than 90% of the units were converted into hostels and rented out to foreign workers.

Resident M.V. Ram Naidu, 65, said he was unhappy that the maintenance fee had been raised from RM50 to RM70 without notice.

He said the sales and purchase supplementary agreement stipulated that the maintenance fee was RM50 per month.

Ram said the flats were also affected by many defects, including leakages from the bathroom tanks.

Another resident, Harbajan Singh, 65, who also questioned the rationale in increasing the maintenance fee, said there was no proper security system.

He added the presence of foreign workers had caused many occupants to move out from the units.

The company’s managing director M. Kajendaran agreed to get the accounts audited before Oct 10.
